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

(Continued)

SHAWNEE — RSU waited till the top of the seventh to provide insurance and the Hillcats did so with four runs. A hit by pitch with bases loaded scored Colton Campbell followed by a bases loaded walk sent Wheeler home as RSU went up 7-3. A pitching change by the Cavaliers didn’t change the recent trend as Mike Pople walked his first batter faced to score Austin Culwell helping the RSU lead grow to 8-3. Hector Rivera pushed the score to its final mark of 9-3 as the senior second baseman reached on a fielder’s choice to second scoring Alex Cochran.

Jacob Ratliff (2-2) received the loss for SGU going 6.1 innings on the mound allowing nine runs, all earned, on nine hits. He fanned six but walked six Hillcats facing 28 batters.

Hillcat southpaw Brandon Bargas (4-1) earned the victory pitching the complete seven inning affair. The Owasso, Okla. native struck out six allowing three runs, two earned, on six hits.

GAME TWO

In the second game of the twin bill it took solid relief pitching and key hitting in the final for RSU to win the extra inning contest.

The Cavaliers scored the first run of the game in the home half of the third to take a 1-0 lead on a solo home run by Cody Guenthart to left field.

Colton Campbell led off the next half inning with a single to shallow left field. A RBI double to deep left field by Wheeler scored Campbell from second as RSU tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the fourth.

In the bottom of the sixth an error by RSU first baseman Cody Campbell scored Taylor to give the home Cavaliers the lead back at 2-1 and three outs away from victory.

RSU had other plans for the afternoon as Colton Campbell singled to left and advanced to second on a ground out by Wheeler. A two-out single by De La Cruz scored Campbell tying the game at 2-2.

  • MLB: Rangers struggle in 9-3 loss to A's

    A rough month didn't get any better for Texas on Sunday night, even though the game-time temperature of 100 degrees would have seemed to be in the Rangers' favor against Oakland.

    However, they trailed 5-0 in the second inning en route to a 9-3 loss to the Athletics. Texas has lost 15 of its last 18 and dropped to 4-19 in July.

  • MLB: First-place Dodgers complete sweep of Giants

    Manager Don Mattingly hardly considers a late-July sweep in San Francisco a turning point to put his Dodgers in the driver's seat atop the NL West.

    Yet coming off consecutive series losses at St. Louis and Pittsburgh, Los Angeles needed some sort of spark as August approaches. The Dodgers found it in the ballpark of their biggest rival, and left the Bay Area in first place following an emphatic three-game swing.

    Carl Crawford hit an RBI triple to back Hyun-Jin Ryu's third straight victory, and division-leading Los Angeles beat the Giants 4-3 Sunday night to establish some momentum behind their pitching and offense.
