TYLER, Texas – Less than 24 hours after being shut out in game one, the Aggie bats were silenced again by the No. 22 ranked UT Tyler Patriots in Saturday’s doubleheader as they fell 3-1 and 11-1.
After dropping game one of the series to the 22nd ranked Patriots, the Aggies would look to bounce back during the Saturday doubleheader in Tyler.
The Black and Gold turned to Brody Curry in the first game of the day and he tossed six innings while allowing five hits and six walks. Curry also struck out six batters but allowed a trio of runs in the start.
At the dish, the Aggies were held to four hits, with Ryan Carter continuing his hot streak by smashing a home run to deep center field in the second inning. That was the lone Black and Gold run of game three of the series.
Nik Sanchez had a productive day at the plate clubbing double and earning a walk only to be left on base each time.
In game two of the twin-bill, the Patriots raced out to a 10-0 lead and never looked back. Before CU could blink, UTT had seven runs on the board in the bottom of the first inning.
After earning three more in the third, the scoring finally stopped in the fifth inning when the final Patriots run came around to push the total to 11.
Alex Ward was the only Aggie hurler to not allow a run, going one inning with one strikeout on 11 pitches.
At the plate, Cameron could only muster up four hits again, on their way to another one run performance. Erik Ohman hit an RBI ground out to plate Jayce Clem in the top of the fifth to score CU’s only run.
The Aggies will look to salvage at least one win as the two teams play the series finale on Sunday afternoon, with first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m.
