War Hawks Sweep Aggies

By Laura Nelson on 02/04/2013 Abilene, Texas—The Aggie baseball team played a doubleheader against McMurry University on Saturday and the War Hawks won both games, completing the three-game series sweep.

McMurry 6, OPSU 0—In the first of the two 7-inning games on Saturday, McMurry pitcher Spencer Smith tossed a complete game shutout, giving up only four hits and striking out eight. Aggie Jordan Bernal, the designated hitter, got two of those hits, a single in the first inning and another in the fourth. Joshua Land took the mound for the Aggies, allowing eight hits and six runs in four and a third innings of work and was given the loss. Nick Chavez finished out the game giving up three hits.

McMurry 2, OPSU 1—Once again, the War Hawk pitching staff allowed only four hits in the second game of the twin bill. The lone Aggie run came in the fifth when third baseman Gregory Siqueiros doubled down the left field line, advanced to third on center fielder Casey Kettler's sacrifice bunt, and then went home when catcher Bo Ybarra grounded out to second base. McMurry scored both of their runs in the second, one walked in with the bases loaded and the second from a sacrifice fly. Alan Scott threw six and a third innings for OPSU, giving up seven hits and two runs and getting the loss. Matt Klaczkiewicz struck out one before Freezy Smalls finished the game with one strikeout and one batter getting to base on balls. Robert Montoya, Alfonso Gonzalez, and Casey Kettler got one hit each.

The Aggies travel to Laredo for another conference three-game set against Texas A&M International with a doubleheader scheduled for Feb. 8 and the final game on Feb. 9.
