The Angelo State baseball team lost their first game against Tarleton State Friday night (3-2), but was able to redeem themselves in Saturday’s game (1-0, 6-1) at the Cecil Ballow Baseball Complex.
After Friday’s loss, Angelo State fell to 18-13 overall and 11-6 in the Lone Star Conference. With the win, TSU’s overall score is now 13-16 and 7-10 in the LSC.
“It was a frustrating loss today,” said head coach Kevin Brooks. “Matt Shannon pitched well, but his three walks ended up hurting us in the end. We are still in the series and we can still take three out of four” he said.
Angelo State then won the 1 p.m. doubleheader Saturday.
With the win the Rams jumped to 20-13 overall and 13-6 in the LSC, while Tarleton dropped to 13-18 overall and 7-12 in the conference.
According to the release by ASU the Rams outhit the Texans 9-7 in the first game and 8-7 in the second game of the day.
Brooks thought the team did a lot of good things Saturday. “Bryan pitched unbelievable today. There is a reason that pitchers get the in or the loss next to their name, because he won the game on his own. Elias was also a big factor for us today. He got the game wining RBI for us in the first game and did a great job of getting on base and scoring for us in the second game” Brooks said.
The Rams will play the series finale starting with the first pitch at 1 p.m. Sunday, in Stephenville.
