UTRGV Baseball clinches series victory over Maine
EDINBURG – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley baseball team beat Maine 7-3 on Sunday at UTRGV Baseball Stadium to claim a 3-1 series victory.
UTRGV (10-7) scored all the runs it needed in the third, as Chris Murphy (0-4) walked senior Ivan Estrella and plunked senior Austin Siener with the bases loaded to force-in runs. Junior Anthony Gomez followed with a bases-clearing triple to put up 5-0. This was Gomez’s first-career three-RBI game.
Estrella drew another bases loaded walk in the fourth and Siener followed with a sacrifice fly to put UTRGV up 7-0.
That made a winner of junior Chase Adams (3-1), who allowed three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five in seven innings.
Maine (4-11) scored all of its runs in the fifth on a Cody Pasic single, a bases loaded walk by Jeremy Pena, and a double play that forced in a run.
Junior Nikki Rowe alum Ryan Jackson and senior George Lamb each tossed a scoreless inning to close out the game.
