Aggie Baseball Loses a Close One

By Laura Nelson on 04/20/2013 Ft. Smith, Ark.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University baseball team played the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith Saturday afternoon in the third and final game of the series, giving up a close 5-4 decision in the ninth inning.

Both teams remained scoreless until the Lions scored two runs in the third inning. OPSU plated its first run in the fourth when Alfonso Gonzalez took a base on balls and eventually scored on an error. UAFS got two more runs in the fifth and a single in the seventh to take a 5-1 lead. In the eighth, Nick Crosswhite walked and made it safely home when Payton Osbon hit a grounder to second base. Lead-off Robert Montoya started off the exciting Aggie ninth by hitting a double, and then Casey Kettler singled. Ruben Aguirre followed that with a single to load the bases. Gonzalez singled to get Montoya home, and then Trey Wooten hit a sacrifice fly to score Kettler, but two Aggie runners were left to stranded.

Starting pitcher Corey Mingin scattered eight hits and struck out four in seven innings of work and was given the loss. Aguirre and Montoya both had three hits for five at-bats.

The team hits the road to take on St. Edward's University for a 3-game series in Austin April 26-27.
