No. 15 Hillcats sweep series from Wayland Baptist

CLAREMORE — No. 15 Rogers State swept Saturday’s doubleheader and in doing so swept the regular season series versus Wayland Baptist at the Diamond Sports Complex.

A walk-off in the bottom of the seventh in game one gave RSU the 3-2 victory over the Pioneers. In the nightcap the Diamond Cats strung together 11 runs on 18 hits to claim the 11-4 victory.


RSU took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning as Colton Campbell scored on a double steal.

The Pioneers tallied runs in the top of the fifth and seventh innings forcing the Hillcats to the home half of the seventh needing to rally.

The Cardiac Cats struck again this time starting with a two out walk by Hector Rivera. Jose Olazagasti reached on an error by the WBU third baseman putting Jean Francois Dumais-Fyfe at second as he pinch ran for Rivera.

With two on and two outs the Cats turned to senior Colton Campbell and the St. Cloud, Fla. native answered with a two-RBI double over the centerfielder’s head to deep center.

The victory went to senior Brandon Bargas (7-3) in the complete game on the mound as he allowed two runs, one earned, and fanned five batters.

Ryan Downs (2-5) received the loss for the Pioneers as he gave up three runs, one earned.


The Hillcats came firing out of the gates in the first inning of game two as Eric Baker led off with a double to deep left. A Tyler Wheeler single scored Baker and moved Colton Campbell to third. A passed ball scored Campbell and a single by Ramcy Lora plated Wheeler as RSU led 3-0 after one inning of action.

The Cats gave up a pair of runs in the top of the third before plating two runs of its own in the home half of the inning. The Pioneers scored a run in the visitor’s half of the fourth before RSU put up four runs in the bottom of the inning.
