Baseball Falls to St. Edward's

By Laura Nelson on 04/26/2013 Austin, Texas—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University baseball team was in Austin Friday for a twin bill against St. Edward's University and the Hilltoppers won both games, 4-3 and 6-1.

With two outs in the first inning of game one, Hilltopper Ransom LaLonde took a solo home run off Aggie pitcher Corey Mingin, but that did not faze the Aggies as they answered in the third when Trey Wooten doubled to bring Payton Osbon home. Jordan Bernal singled to score Wooten, and then Casey Kettler singled to score Bernal to give the Aggies a 3-1 lead. The Rattlers came back in the fifth inning with three runs and held the Aggies scoreless to secure the win. Mingin tossed a complete game, scattering six hits and striking out three.

In game two, St. Edward's took a 6-0 lead through six innings of play and OPSU scored their lone run in the seventh. Ruben Aguirre doubled, advanced to third on a wild pitch, and then scored when Nick Crosswhite singled. Alan Scott threw a complete game, allowing only five hits and striking out five.

The third and final game of the series is set for Saturday at 1 p.m. Live stats are available using the link on the OPSU website baseball schedule page at
