SAN ANGELO, Texas – Despite three home runs on the day, the Aggie baseball team dropped a pair to No. 1/No. 12 Angelo State after getting outscored 21-10.
Cameron looked to bounce back in a big way on doubleheader Saturday against one of the nations’ top teams after getting run-rules in the opening game of the series on Friday.
In-game two of the series, the Aggies got the scoring started in the first inning with a Ryan Carter RBI double to plate Nate Pecota. The lead would last less than half an inning, as the Rams answered with a sac-fly in the bottom half of the frame.
Jayce Clem launched a homer over the left-field wall in the very next inning to re-gain the lead for the Black and Gold. Again, the lead lasted just half an inning, as Brody Curry gave up a solo shot to start the bottom of the second inning. The Rams went on to post three more runs in the bottom half of the second.
The Angelo State offense was too much to handle though, as their bats broke out for a six-spot in the sixth inning to put the game away.
In-game three of the series, The Rams bats got the scoring started early. Two runs came around to score on a Josh Elvir homer in the first inning. ASU scored three more in the second inning, before getting that same run production in the fourth. ASU collected a run in both the fifth and the sixth inning to push ten runs across.
A Williams fielder’s choice got the Aggies their first of four runs in game two in the third inning. CU scored three runs in the sixth inning, highlighted by a two-run Jordan Harrison-Dudley homer to left field.
The Aggies will look to stave off a sweep in game four of the series on Sunday afternoon, with first pitch slated for 1 p.m. in San Angelo.
