WINCHESTER, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee brought its bats to Winchester, Tenn., as it hit four home runs on its way to a 13-6 win over Tennessee on Tuesday night to extend its win streak to six. The Blue Raiders (19-14-1) notched 18 hits in the game including the four home runs and four doubles as every batter in the line-up recorded at least one hit. Tennessee (22-14) was held to just seven hits by the Blue Raider pitching staff but did hit two doubles and one home run. The Vols also committed three errors in the game with shortstop Danny Lima having two.

"All the way through the line-up we picked up stuff and took advantage of Tennessee's errors. It was just a very good night," head coach Steve Peterson said.

Freshman Tyler Burnett led the way going 3 for 4 with a home run, double, one RBI, scored two runs and a stolen base.

Senior Zach Barrett, juniors Grant Box, Rawley Bishop and sophomores Blake McDade and Zach Hudson each had two hits in the game. McDade led the team in RBI as he had three after going 2 for 6 with a home run.

"Timely hitting, we left runners on early in the game but we came through. Tyler Burnett had a good game he has been swinging the bat well. Blake has also been swinging the bat well and Rawley is starting to get hot which is really important," head coach Steve Peterson said.
