SAC BASEBALL: RSU sweeps series from St. Gregory's

SHAWNEE — The Rogers State baseball team stretched its current win streak to 13 games Friday afternoon at Bill Nicklas Field sweeping the St. Gregory’s Cavaliers in the series with a pair of victories.

Two innings of four runs each helped RSU claim a 9-3 win in the first game of the doubleheader but it took late game heroics from the Hillcats in a 3-2 extra inning affair in the nightcap.

GAME ONE

RSU lit up the scoreboard first in the top of the third inning as back-to-back singles from Blake Heston and Hector Rivera led off the inning. Colton Campbell reached on a fielder’s choice to score Heston and moving Rivera to third as the Hillcats took the 1-0 lead. The Hillcat advantage quickly built to 2-0 on Tyler Wheeler’s RBI single to center scored Rivera. SGU loaded the bases with a walk of Cody Campbell. Emmanuel De La Cruz made the most of the opportunity with a single to left scoring Colton Campbell and Wheeler as the RSU lead grew to 4-0.

The Cavaliers answered in the home half of the inning as a ground out to short stop by Roberto Celestino scored Jordan Funtila and moved Matt Blackwell to third. A passed ball by the RSU catcher scored Blackwell before RSU starter Brandon Bargas could fan Mark Milioto to end the inning as the Cavs cut the Hillcat lead in half 4-2.

Heston led off the fourth with a single to right and moved into scoring position on a ground out to short by Hector Rivera. Colton Campbell traded places with Heston a double down the right field line building the lead to three runs.

SGU had a response to the Hillcats’ solo run scored in the top of the fourth as the Cavs’ Christian Torres homered to left field trimming the RSU lead to 5-3.
