Liberty Flames Baseball - ABC 13 Team of the Week


Lynchburg - Today's ABC 13 Team of the Week is Liberty Flames Baseball.  LU has been on a tear of late.  Tuesday night's come-from-behind 4-3 win over Duke was LU's eighth straight win and 19th out of its last 21 games.

Down 3-0 against the Blue Devils, the Flames tied it with a solo and two-run homer in the seventh, then Ryan Seiz' solo shot the next inning proved to be the winner.  The Flames are playing at Maryland Wednesday evening before hosting VMI this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Jim Toman, LIBERTY FLAMES HEAD COACH, said "The pitchers have just kept us in almost every game. Coach Quinn has done a great job with the pitchers and we're getting some timely hitting.  And we're playing better defense."

Ryan Seiz, HIT GAME-WINNING HR VS. DUKE, said "You know we started off 1-and-3 and we knew how good or the potential we had with this team.  And in March, we just said hey, we've got to get it together.  And our pitching has been phenomenal."

Andrew Yacyk, FRESHMAN HIT PINCH-HIT 2-RUN HR VS. DUKE, said "It was one of those balls that hopefully, you know, will change some things around for me.  And you know if I can get that and help out the team and we can keep winning, that's my job is to help the team win."
