Texans get 17-6 win in finale, sweep series
Cameron's baseball didn't have the type of final home weekend that it had hoped but with just four seniors, some good young pitchers coming up, plus some new recruits, the future sure seems brighter for the Aggies and coach Brady Huston.
Sunday afternoon Cameron fell to Tarleton State 17-6 in seven innings in the final game of a four game series against the Texans and the final CU home game of the year; TSU took all four games of the Lone Star Conference series.
Cameron, which is now 15-28 overall and 5-15 in the LSC, will wrap up the regular season with a four game set at Texas A&M-Kingsville next weekend. CU is currently tied with Eastern New Mexico for sixth place in the conference standings and that's important since the top six teams make the conference tournament.
Texas-Permian Basin is seventh, two games behind the Aggies and Greyhounds, which just happens to be the team Permian Basin faces next week and that's a series the Aggies will definitely be watching. However, CU's best route to the tournament is to go south and win a couple of games and that would avoid any suspense.
Sunday afternoon, things looked promising for the Aggies to start the game, as they worked around a pair of hits in the top of the first, and then led off the bottom of the inning with three straight hits, with the third being a two run single from Cole Williams. After a pair of CU strikeouts, both Colton Adams and Michael Flohr walked to load the bases, but TSU got out of trouble with another strikeout to end the inning.
The top of the second was when the Texans did most of their damage, scoring eight runs on seven hits to take an 8-2 lead. Cameron got a pair back in the bottom of the frame, Briton Schiewe drove in Luke Hughes on a single through the right side and then Williams scored on wild pitch to cut the deficit to four.
