BASEBALL: No. 5 Diamond 'Cats off to hot start


CLAREMORE — Caleb Sims suffered the loss for the Patriots in three innings as he gave up 11 hits, three walks and striking out three.

Wheeler was 3-for-3 at the plate falling a home run short of the cycle with four RBI. Rivera went 2-for-3 with four RBI as all but one Hillcat recorded a hit.

Game Two

The Hillcat burst out of the gate in the top of the first versus the SAGU Lions in the second game for RSU Friday.

Coach Ron Bradley’s squad tallied eight runs in the opening frame but host SAGU responded with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning, 8-1.

A lead-off double by Cody Campbell to start the inning was followed by a Blake Heston single, moving Campbell to third. Johan Ochoa reached base on a fielder’s choice that scored Campbell to push RSU up 9-1.

With two outs in the fourth, Ochoa drew a walk to keep the Hillcats alive. Ochoa moved to third on a McKenzie Matthews single and came home on an Alex Cochran single pushing the Cats ahead 10-1.

RSU added four runs in the top of the fifth inning as the Cats built a 14-2 lead. The Hillcats went to the bullpen for the second time in the game and the Lions capitalized with five runs cutting the deficit to 14-7.

Heston scored on an error by the SAGU shortstop giving the Diamond Cats yet another insurance run in the top of the seventh. Colton Weeks came in to close out the game for RSU and allowed one run on two hits facing five batters.

Shawn Spainhoward (1-0) was awarded the win allowing two unearned runs on three hits with three strikeouts and one walk. Sean Patton pitched an inning of relief retiring three batters, two on ground outs, with just five pitches. In an inning of relief Drew Anthony allowed five earned runs on three hits walking four.
