Diamond 'Cats drop series to No. 6 LCU

LUBBOCK, Texas — The Rogers State Hillcats, ranked 15 in the NAIA Baseball Coaches’ Poll, fell in Saturday’s doubleheader versus No. 6 Lubbock Christian and in turn was swept in the regular season series by the Chaps at Hays Field.

The Diamond Cats dropped game one 3-0 and fell in getaway game 9-4 as the Chaps scored in all but one inning of game two.


In the first game Saturday the Cats couldn’t make the most of six hits as LCU used seven hits to tally three runs in the third game of the series and first played on Saturday.

After giving up a pair of runs in the bottom of the first the Hillcats looked to make a move in the second inning. Tyler Wheeler singled with one out and Ramcy Lora roped a single to centerfield to put runners on first and second. A double play ground out at second however ended the inning for the Cats.

LCU’s Jack Mabe faced four batters in the third, fourth and fifth innings. In the home half of the fifth a fielding error by the Hillcats’ third baseman was followed by a double to center field. A fly out in foul territory led to RSU intentionally walking Joel Lutz looking for a double play opportunity of its own. But a hit-by-pitch brought home Christian Vasquez to put the score at 3-0.

The Chaps faced the minimum  in the sixth while RSU starting pitcher Brandon Bargas retired LCU three-up, three-down in the bottom half of the inning.

RSU led off the seventh with a single to center but the next at-bat a fielder’s choice by Lora cut down the lead runner. Mabe struck out the next batter before forcing a pop out to short stop and giving the LCU pitcher his sixth win of the season.
