KINGSVILLE, TEXAS (March 16, 2016) -- The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) baseball team dropped a nine-inning game to NCAA DII Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) 3-4 Tuesday night.
The Saints are now 13-14 overall, while TAMUK improves to 13-6.
Head Coach Freddy Rodriguez commented: "Last night was a tough loss. We played great the entire game, but just couldn't get that 27th out. Chase Smith (JR/La Porte, Texas) and David Marte (SR/Boston, Mass.) both pitched a great game shutting down a good offensive Kingsville team. I was proud of the execution of our offense in the innings we scored. We were aggressive on the bases and we swung it well last night. It was good to see a lot of balls hit hard and guys gaining confidence. I think our bats are coming around at the right time. This weekend's series will be a test for us on the road. I feel good about the direction we are heading."
Top of the Fourth Inning: A hit from Davis sent Ryan Ramsey (FR/Grapevine, Texas) home to give the Saints the 3-0 lead.
Bottom of the Ninth Inning: TAMUK scored four runs to end the game with the 4-3 win. A double from R Ruben Almaguer sent Alec Kana and Brayton Carlson home. A triple from Jimmy Roche scored Preston Plovanich, and a single from Hayden Vesely sent Plovanich home for the win.
Pitching: Chase Smith started on the mound for the Saints. He pitched five innings and allowed five hits while striking out six. David Marte came in to pitch three innings and he allowed two runs and two hits, while striking out five. Jesus Ramirez (FR/Quitman, Texas) suffered the loss after he allowed three hits and two runs.
Hunter Lehman earned the win for the Javelinas. He pitched one inning.
TAMUK – Jimmy Roche went 2-5 and had one run and one RBI.
UP NEXT: The Saints will travel to Hobbs, N.M. this weekend to play a four-game conference series the University of the Southwest. The first doubleheader takes place on Saturday, March 19, and the second, on Sunday, March 20.
