TC allows 23 runs to Cisco in twin bill
CISCO — Temple College lost twice Saturday at Cisco, falling 11-0 in five innings in Game 1 and 12-6 in Game 2.
“They’re a really good team. They’re team batting average is somewhere around .440, which is unheard of,” TC coach Craig McMurtry said. “We didn’t make good pitches, and when you throw like that against a good team, this is what happens.”
Jacob Little lasted three innings for TC (15-9, 1-3 Northern Texas Junior College Athletic Conference) and left with a 9-0 deficit in Game 1. Nick Clawson came on in the fourth and allowed two runs in Cisco’s final at-bat.
Cisco (26-1, 7-1) recorded 10 extra-base hits in Game 2 and finished with 19 hits. Temple had 12 hits and trailed 5-3 after three innings before a five-run fourth put Cisco ahead and closer to the comfortable win.
Devin Tucker got the start and allowed five runs in three innings before Jared Hart was tagged with six runs through four innings. Nick Mendivil allowed a run in the eighth inning. Joey Orsak hit a home run and a double, while Breck Potvin and Seth Spinn reached on a triple and double, respectively.
Crusaders notch two against
BELTON — Mary Hardin-Baylor won both ends of its American Southwest Conference doubleheader Saturday, topping LeTourneau 4-2 and 7-5 at Red Murff Field.
A three-run third inning was the difference for the Crusaders (8-12, 5-4) in Game 1, which included Malek Bolin’s two-hit, two-RBI performance and Sam Wheatley’s 2-for-2 showing. Andrew Hutchings worked 3 2/3 innings on the mound for the victory.
Mitch Patterson, Austin Blanford and Dakota Best had three hits apiece, and Landon Dieterich hit a home run in Game 2 for the Crusaders, who had 16 hits and got five strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings from starter Harrison Sims.
UMHB closes out series with win
BELTON — Hannah Wolfe went 2-for-2 with four RBIs, Devon Walter added a home run and three RBIs and Mary Hardin-Baylor defeated Concordia Texas 11-3 on Saturday to finish a three-game American Southwest Conference sweep.
