Baseball Comes Up Short in Austin

—By Laura Nelson on 04/29/2012 Austin, Texas—The Oklahoma Panhandle State Univ. baseball team (4-41, 3-30 Heartland Conference) played St. Edward's (33-11, 24-8 HC) in Austin over the weekend, with the Aggies losing three hard-fought games.

Friday's first game of the doubleheader featured a pitcher's duel as Sean Williams took the mound for the Aggies. He threw the complete seven inning game, giving up only four hits and striking out five. St. Ed's winning pitcher, Matt Davis, gave up only three hits and struck out six, but the Hilltoppers scored an unearned run in the first inning and then sealed their 2-0 win with a solo home run in the sixth.

The Hilltoppers once again scored an unearned run in the first inning of the second game, and neither team scored another run until Dillon Doucette went home on an Alan Droke single in the fourth to tie the score. A two-run homer put St. Ed's ahead by one in the sixth. Droke doubled in the seventh and then scored on a Dominic DeJoseph triple to come within one run of tying it back up, but the Aggies did not score again while the Hilltoppers put up another run to win the game 4-2. Both pitching squads gave up seven hits each, but St. Edward's struck out 13 compared to six Aggie strike-outs. Josh Newman tossed five innings for the loss and Daulton Perry pitched three innings.

In the final game of the series on Saturday, the home team scored five runs through the first four innings of play while holding OPSU scoreless. The Aggies found a way to put up runs in the sixth when Schuyler Carter singled, advanced to third on a Jordan Bernal single, and then scored when Freezy Smalls hit a sacrifice fly. Bernal made it safely home on a Doucette double to put the score at 5-2, Hilltoppers. The Aggies went on to score one more run in the ninth, but could not take over the lead, and the game ended with a 7-3 win for St. Edward's. The Aggies used six pitchers and starting pitcher Matt Klaczkiewicz was given the loss. Bernal went 2-4 at the plate and Doucette and Smalls picked up one RBI each.

The Aggies close out their season with a three-game series May 4-5 in Odessa against the Univ. of Texas of the Permian Basin (13-30, 9-23 HC).
