CU baseball divides Permian Basin pair
With somewhat better weather, Cameron and Texas-Permian Basin got busy with their Lone Star Conference baseball series Sunday and after several hours of tight defense and good pitching, they managed to split with the Aggies taking a 3-2 victory in the first game and losing the second, 4-2.
Cameron is now 14-19 overall and 4-6 in Lone Star Conference play, while UTPB is now 5-26 on the season and 1-5 in league games. The two teams will meet again Monday for another doubleheader beginning at noon.
Sunday both teams had to fight for every run they could muster. In Game 1, Cameron struck first with a sacrifice fly off the bat of Luke Hughes to put CU up 1-0 after four innings.
UT-Permian Basin responded with a pair of runs in the fifth on two RBI hits to take over the lead.
In the bottom of the sixth, Trey Bigford led off the inning with a walk and then, after UTPB recorded an out, Hughes singled to put two runners on base. The Falcons' pitcher then walked three straight batters, Alberto Moralobo, Briton Schiewe, and Kameron Good the last walk driving in a run in the easy fashion to put the Aggies back up on top 3-2.
