**For Immediate Release** St. Mary's Baseball Sweeps the Aggies By Laura Nelson on 04/13/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—The St. Mary's University Rattlers completed their sweep of the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Aggies Saturday afternoon in the final of the three-game series.

The Aggies started the game off great in the first inning, stopping the Rattlers from scoring after they loaded the bases. Casey Kettler reached on a fielder's choice and Ruben Aguirre followed with a double that allowed Kettler to score to give the Aggies an early one-run lead at the end of the first. St. Mary's answered with a tying run in the second and then took a 3-1 lead in the third. The Rattlers had a huge 7-run fourth inning and scored two more in the eighth to close out the 12-1 victory. Starting pitcher Rene Solis threw six innings, giving up only four hits and striking out three and improved his season record to 5-0. Corey Mingin took the loss, allowing 10 hits and striking out one over three and one-third innings.

The team takes to the road April 17 for a doubleheader against Northeastern State University in Tahlequah and then travels to the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith to resume conference play in a three-game series April 19-20.
