Aggie Baseball Drops Two

By Laura Nelson on 04/19/2013 Ft. Smith, Ark.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University baseball team dropped both games of the doubleheader against conference rivals the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith Friday afternoon.

Lions pitcher Neil Smith tossed a complete game shutout in the first game, striking out 10 and allowing only three hits in the 6-0 win. Alan Scott was on the mound for the Aggies and also threw a complete game, giving up four hits and striking out three. Nick Crosswhite, Ruben Aguirre, and Alfonso Gonzalez each had one hit.

The Aggies struck first in game two as lead-off Chris McClendon singled, advanced to second on a Casey Kettler sacrifice bunt, and then scored when Alfonso Gonzalez singled. UAFS answered with a tying run in the first inning, but then pulled ahead with three runs in the third and five more in the fifth to take a 9-1 lead. OPSU's Dominic DeJoseph got on with a single in the fifth and Kettler singled to advance him to second. He made it safely home when Ruben Aguirre singled, but that ended the scoring for the Aggies as they lost 14-2. Losing pitcher Nolan Glasscock worked four innings, allowing 10 hits and striking out one.

The third and final game is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday. Fans can keep track of the game through live stats and may also purchase live video. Both links can be found on the baseball schedule on the OPSU website at http://www.opsu.edu/Athletics/Baseball.
