Valley pitcher helping Lewis-Clark State baseball stay alive for national championship

Got a note from college baseball as well this morning. Lewis-Clark State’s baseball team is in the midst of hosting another NAIA World Series at their home field in Lewiston, ID.

The Warriors are in a loser-out game tonight against Southeastern University, after a win last night over Antelope Valley of California. LCSC held off the Antelope squad 5-3 to remain alive in the event after having fallen on Monday to Freed-Hardeman. North Bend’s Tanner Simpson pitched last night’s game for LCSC and walked one hitter in his short stint on the mound. The senior worked two innings of relief on Monday, and they were perfect, with a strikeout. The 2014 MSHS grad received no decision for either appearance on the mound.

The Warriors opened the tournament last Friday with a win over St. Thomas. We’ll keep you posted on how they fare, and we should also mention we have more on Simpson for you coming up. Could he possibly be a candidate to be drafted in next week’s Major League Baseball draft, or perhaps at minimum have a chance to sign with an MLB organization as a free agent? We’ll let you know soon enough as we preview Valley draft prospects for you here.
