UTPA Ace Goes The Full Nine Once More In Win Over ABC

The University of Texas-Pan American Broncs baseball team scored in five of the first six innings en route to a 7-4 win over the Arlington Baptist College Patriots on Friday at Edinburg Baseball Stadium.

The Broncs (7-7) scored their first four runs against Patriots (10-10) starter Michael Scruggs with two outs in each of the first three innings.

With two outs in the first, senior Alberto Morales crushed a two-run home run into the Broncs bullpen beyond the left field wall to make it 2-0.

With two outs in the second, senior Brandon Roush doubled and junior Evan Mason hit an RBI-single to make it 3-1.

With two outs in the third, freshman Victor Garcia Jr. singled, and after sophomore Jacob Huckabay reached on an error, senior Shane Ammon came up with an RBI-single to make it 4-1.

Mason led off the fourth with a double and scored on a one-out single by sophomore PSJA alum Bryan Ramirez to make it 5-1.

In the sixth, Roush drew a leadoff walked and scored on a one-out RBI-triple by junior Jesus Garcia. Ramirez followed with a sacrifice fly to make it 7-1.

That was more than enough for senior Sam Street (4-0), who pitched his NCAA-leading third-straight complete game, allowing four runs (one earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking out nine.

The Broncs and Patriots complete this three-game series on Saturday at 12 p.m. with a doubleheader. Both games are scheduled for nine innings. Gates open at 11 a.m.
