Lions Sweep Aggie Baseball

—By Laura Nelson on 04/23/2012 Ft. Smith, Ark.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State Univ. baseball team added a day to their travel time over the weekend as the three games scheduled against the Univ. of Ft. Smith-Arkansas were delayed a full day due to rain, and the Lions improved their season record to 22-18 overall and 15-14 in the conference while the Aggies fell to 4-38 overall and 3-27 in conference play.

The Lions broke out the bats early in game one on Saturday, scoring five runs in the first inning and adding nine more through the seven inning game. Blake Hardegree was finally able to put a stop to Lion pitcher Sam Meloy's no-hitter in the sixth inning of play with a single and the Aggies avoided a shutout in the final inning when Patterson reached first on an error, advanced to third off a Colton McKithan double, and then scored when Thomas McGuckin hit a sacrifice fly. The final score was 14-1, Lions, and Daulton Perry was given the loss.

Both teams remained scoreless through two innings in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader, but UA-FS started connecting in the third and scored three runs and two more in the fifth. Even though the Aggies had five hits, they stranded five runners and lost 5-0. Sean Williams pitched the entire seven inning game, scattering seven hits.

In the final game of the series, the hardworking Aggies had six hits over nine innings, but again couldn't make it safely home. Losing pitcher Mitch Provolt gave up seven hits, and relievers Matt Klaczkiewicz and Colton Harvick gave up four and two, respectively.

The Aggies take to the road again April 27-28 for a three-game series against St. Edward's in Austin, currently in second place with a 21-8 Heartland Conference record.
