Lee Flames Lose in Final NAIA Game
By Darrell Patterson
The Lee University Flames of Cleveland lost to Faulkner University of Montgomery, AL 8-4 Wednesday night in the NAIA baseball World Series championship semifinals.
That was the Flames final NAIA game, as they'll move up to NCAA later this year.
Brandon Rader hit his fourth home run of the season in the third inning of Thursday's game in Lewiston, Idaho, but the Eagles scored four runs in the 6th inning and coasted to the win.
The loss was Lee's second in the double-elimination tournament, which Tennessee Wesleyan College of Athens won last year.
Faulkner, still unbeaten in the tournament, will take on Lewis-Clark State, the host team, in Thursday night's championship finals. Lewis-Clark State will have to beat Faulkner twice to win the championship.
Flames head coach Mark Brew posted on Twitter: "We are proud to have played in the NAIA World Series for 7 consecutive years and have represented Lee and the NAIA well. A new challenge exists now and as I reflect this morning we are excited for what lies ahead for our program and university."
