CLAREMORE — “I am glad to be here, thankful to God for the opportunity and happy to learn more,” Bargas said of his professional start.
His second appearance came June 17 at the Kansas City T-Bones as Bargas worked six innings in a no-decision as the AirHogs won 9-4. The southpaw fanned a season-high five batters as he allowed one earned run on five hits.
Most recently the Amarillo Sox bested Bargas in his five inning appearance suffering his first professional loss. He gave up four runs on seven hits and fanned four batters on June 22.
On the season Bargas holds a 1-1 record with a 2.89 ERA as he’s totaled 18.2 innings of work with 13 strikeouts.
With his time as a Hillcat over, Bargas reflected on his time on The Hill.
“It was a great experience and a wonderful atmosphere. My family, friends being so close and able to watch me play. Coach Bradley tells recruits that the athletic department is one big family and he’s right. The whole campus is one big family and it was something I really enjoyed,” Bargas said of RSU. “My team was a band of brothers and I have nothing better to ask for in the fact we went to the World Series the last two years.”
