Former-Warrior Robinson leads LC State to NAIA Title

Having topped the 2017 Warrior lineup in hits, RBI, doubles and home runs, J.J. Robinson entered the NAIA World Series title game with little lacking in his senior-year resume at Lewis-Clark State College.

The powerhouse lefty from Colfax was true to form Friday night at Harris Field as he led the team (along with Micah Brown) in hits and runs at two apiece while delivering a key RBI in the seventh inning – and in the process, he removed the last “0” from his storied batting stat sheet with his first triple of the season.

Robinson’s seventh-inning slug sent Brown home for […]
