Rattlers Bite Aggies in Series Sweep

By Laura Nelson on 02/24/2013 San Antonio—The nationally ranked St. Mary's University baseball team swept the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Aggies in a three-game series Feb. 22-23 in Heartland Conference play.

StMU 1, OPSU 0—All-American Rattler pitcher Carl O'Neal tossed a complete game shutout against the Aggies in game one of the twin bill on Friday, giving up only one hit and striking out two. In the seven inning game, OPSU's Alan Scott also pitched a complete game, giving up only three hits and striking out two in his six innings of work. The game remained scoreless through inning three, and in the bottom of the fourth with runners at first and second, Scott Slusher hit a two-out single that scored the second base runner. Nick Crosswhite got the lone OPSU hit during inning seven when he hit a lead-off single.

StMU 6, OPSU 0—The Aggies faced another All-American in game two, Rene Solis. Winning pitcher Solis struck out six and allowed only one hit through eight innings. OPSU starter Corey Mingin scattered nine hits, struck out one, and gave up five runs in seven innings while reliever Matt Klaczkiewicz gave up one run in one inning of work. Centerfielder Casey Kettler hit a one-out single in the eighth, but was thrown out when Robert Montoya hit into a double play to retire the side.

StMU10, OPSU 0—St. Mary's took a two-run lead in the first and OPSU got two hits in the fourth. With one out, Jordan Bernal and Alfonso Gonzalez hit back-to-back singles, and both took extra bases to put them at second and third. Crosswhite walked to load the bases, but the remaining batters could not get them home. Montoya singled in the fifth for the third and final Aggie hit. Starting Aggie pitcher Joshua Land was given the loss. He scattered seven hits and struck out two in five innings of work.

The Aggies dropped to 0-12 overall and 0-9 in the Heartland Conference and St. Mary's is now 12-3 and 10-2 HC.

OPSU hosts its home opener this Friday, March 1 with a doubleheader against conference rival University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith (6-5, 5-4 HC) with the first pitch at noon.
