   Ram baseball split a four game series April 1-3 against Tarleton State in Stephenville.
   In the first game, the Rams fell in a closely contested 3-2 result which saw the Rams unable to capitalize on three Texan errors and a one run lead squandered in the bottom of the sixth inning. Sophomore pitcher Matt Shannon battled through eight innings in the loss, keeping the Rams within one run until the bitter end.
   During the doubleheader on the second day of the series, the Rams rebounded for a sweep of the day with scores of 1-0 and 6-1. Senior pitcher Bryce Zak pitched eight innings as he struck out 11 batters and allowed five hits in the shutout win before making way for senior closer Graylon Brown to notch his fourth save of the season.
   The Rams got their only run in the ninth inning from freshman outfielder Clay Wegner on a Texan error after sophomore outfielder Elias Aguirre hit a single. With the second game of the doubleheader came the offensive firepower that was lacking in the first two games.
In the 6-1 victory, the Rams tallied their six runs on eight hits, three of those runs coming off errors by the Texans. Senior pitcher Paxton DeLaGarza got the win in just two innings of work while junior Kenton Schroter got an unconventional five inning save in the victory.
   The final game of the series went 5-4 for Tarleton in extra innings as Graylon Brown received the losing decision on the mound.
With the series split, the Rams move to 20-14 overall and 13-7 in conference play. Next the Rams will welcome Eastern New Mexico to Foster Field April 8 and 9 for a three game series.
