BASEBALL: Bacone edges No. 5 RSU, 6-5

MUSKOGEE — Despite three solo homeruns by No. 5-ranked Rogers State, the Hillcats couldn’t capitalize with bases loaded resulting in a 6-5 loss to Bacone College at Warrior Field Wednesday afternoon.

Leading 4-2 in the top of the fifth RSU led off with the top of the lineup. The Hillcats were able to load the bases with just one out and Cody Campbell at the plate. Campbell, who hit a solo shot over the left field fence in the second inning, hit into a double play as the first batter faced by Bacone’s Aberto Pena.

In the bottom half of the inning the host Warriors scored Anthony Seabolt on a RBI double by Kyle Pietryga to cut the Hillcat lead to 4-3.

In the top of the sixth Ramcy Lora blasted a solo shot to left-center, the second homerun of the season for the Hillcat transfer, pushing the RSU lead back to two runs at 5-3.

Mason Marquette went to the mound for RSU in the sixth and led off with a strikeout of Antonio Horn. Steven Smith doubled to right and scored on a single by Enrique Meza to cut the deficit back to 5-4 advantage RSU.

A three up, three down top of the seventh inning by RSU led to the Warriors tying the game in the bottom half of the inning. A leadoff homerun by Eric Folkers, in his second at-bat of the game, tied the contest at 5-5.

In the top of the eighth inning Bacone went to the bullpen bringing in Kydani Ortiz and RSU took advantage of the new pitcher. A leadoff walk followed by a hit-by-pitch led to a single by Jose Olazagasti and loading the bases for the Hillcats. Lora connected on a 1-1 pitch but the ground ball was snagged by the first baseman who fired home for the force out. A fly ball to second base followed by a strikeout retired the side as Bacone avoided another shot by the Hillcats.
