ALBION, Mich. – Andrew Fabry gave Albion College six solid innings of relief and shortstop Joe Turnbull slugged two more doubles as Albion College rallied for a 9-8 victory over Trine University in the first game of a Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association baseball doubleheader at Champions Stadium at Frank Joranko Field.
Trine scored five times in the first and it added a run in the third to surge to a 6-0 lead.
Turnbull now has 14 doubles this season, good for third-most on Albion's single-season list. He is one double shy of matching Brad Brown's 1995 total of 15 doubles.
Fabry (2-2) was charged with three runs on seven hits and a walk. Steven Scott worked around a leadoff single to notch his fourth save of the season.
Albion had to settle for a split of the doubleheader when it lost game two, 4-1. Lindemann's sacrifice fly in the sixth drove in TJ Bowers with Albion's run. The Britons received fine relief pitching performances from Patrick O'Brien (a run on two hits and a walk over 3.2 innings) and Scott (1.1 perfect innings).
Albion (15-22 overall, 8-18 MIAA) is scheduled to complete the season with a Sunday doubleheader with Trine in Angola, Ind.
