SWOSU Baseball Falls to No. 20 Angelo State in Game Two


February 11, 2018

SAN ANGELO, Texas – The Bulldogs had a chance to claim the series victory on Saturday in the second game of the three-game series against No. 20 Angelo State, but fell by a final score of 11-2 to the Rams.

After scoring nine runs on nine hits in the opening game of the series on Friday, the SWOSU offense went quiet with just four hits and a pair of runs to show on Saturday. Meanwhile, ASU posted 14 hits and dealt their blows with crooked numbers in four of the nine innings of the game.

Angelo State controlled game two from nearly start to finish by scoring four runs in the opening two innings. SWOSU chipped into the lead in the third inning with an RBI single from Bryan Miranda, but the Rams extended their lead even further in the fifth inning after a grand slam cleared all three bases and pushed the Bulldog deficit to 8-1.

Daniel Richardson was hit by pitch in the seventh inning and scored the final run for SWOSU on the day after Rogelio Sanchez hit a sac fly to drive him in three batters later.

ASU's Carson Childers gave the Rams a quality start on the mound and was tough on the Bulldog offense all afternoon. SWOSU was able to tally just four hits through nine innings, with Miranda being responsible for two of those. Trent Baker finished the game off on the mound for Angelo State, pitching the final 2.1 innings without allowing a run.

Drew Grubb (L, 0-1) suffered the loss in his first decision of the season, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing eight runs on nine hits. Brant Millerborg came out of the bullpen first in relief and threw 1.2 innings, allowing three runs himself. Brooks Pond finished the game off, throwing the final two innings of the game and did not allow a run during his first outing of the season.

SWOSU (3-3) will take on No. 20 Angelo State one last time on Sunday (Feb. 11) when they battle for the series victory.
