The William Carey baseball team’s run in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) World Series came to an end on Wednesday night.

The Crusaders fell to Lewis-Clark College 15-6 in the tournament’s semifinals, ending the team’s stellar season that included a conference championship and the 1,300th career victory for head coach Bobby Halford.

During Wednesday’s loss to Lewis-Clark, the Warriors jumped out to a 6-0 lead after two innings of play. The Crusaders made a comeback in the top of the fourth inning, tying the game at six on RBIs from Rigoberto Hernandez, Caleb Laird, and Bobby Lada.

It didn’t take long for Lewis-Clark to break the tie with a three-run shot from Nick Seamons in the bottom of the inning. The Warriors extended their lead to 13-6 in the seventh before Jake Green closed out the game in the top of the ninth.

On the mound, Green (5-0) came away with the victory while John Snyder (2-2) suffered the loss. RJ Stinson, Lada, and Hernandez led the way offensively for the Crusaders with two hits apiece.

With the elimination of No. 4 seed William Carey, only three teams remain in the NAIA World Series: No. 9 Lewis-Clark, No. 1 Southeastern, and No. 3 Westmont. The Crusaders finish the year with an overall record of 49-11.
