PLU moves to 2-0 in NCAA regional thanks to terrific Thompson
One day after clubbing a solo home run, the former Dimond High star delivered a three-run double in the fifth inning to make it 6-0 and basically cement the team’s second postseason win in two days.
This one came over a 35-win Birmingham Southern team and kept the second-seeded Lutes undefeated in the double-elimination regional.
Thompson now has 39 RBIs in 41 games this season.
The all-league third baseman drove in his first run in the third inning on a fielder’s choice to make it 3-0 PLU. Then in the fifth he cleared the bases with a double.
PLU [32-12] will play again Friday at 3 p.m. ADT.
