**For Immediate Release**
Aggie Baseball Gets Big Win Over MSU-Billings
by Aggie Sports on 03-27-06

Goodwell, Okla.- Oklahoma Panhandle State baseball fans saw college baseball at its best on Saturday afternoon. Although the Aggies trailed Montana State University-Billings early in the game, they fought back, and the score was tied 3-3 after the regulation seven innings.

Neither squad could plate a run in the eighth inning, and MSU-B again went scoreless in the top of the ninth. In the bottom of the ninth, OPSU threatened early, but an excellent MSU-B double play retired two runners and left one Aggie on base.

Senior first baseman Dave Pierson stepped to the plate for the Aggies, sporting a .330 batting average and one of the best clutch hitters in the Heartland Conference. The 6’1” left-hander promptly hammered a fastball over the right field fence for a two-run walk off homer.

OPSU outfielder Aaron Tecumseh hit a two-run double, and the other Aggie run came home on a single by Corey Mathews, who entered the game as the league’s second-ranked hitter with an average of .393.

Though he did not get the decision, Aggie pitcher Ricky Reagan did a nice job on the mound. The senior from Houston struck out 11 batters over eight innings.
