He gives a great chance to win when he pitches like that.”Andrew Wood led the Indians’ offense with a 3-for-4 effort at the plate with a two-run homerun. a double, and five RBI.Nick Cowen (double, 2 runs, RBI) and Casey Hunt (run) each went 2-for-3 at the plate.Cowen started game two on the hill for Tecumseh (4-1 overall, 1-0 SEC) and pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on three hits while striking out one and walking five.Vannatter went in on relief and pitched 1 1/3 innings, giving up two earned runs on four hits while striking out one.Jacob Britt was 1-for-3 with a three-run home run while Carey was 1-for-2 with a double.
