ASU’s Rams have officially begun their 2017 baseball season with a three part series against the Regis University Rangers.

The first game was on Feb. 3, which started with the Rams taking the lead with a single point in the first inning, while the Rangers did not obtain one until the third inning.

However, as the game continued, the Rams were not able to get any more points while the Rangers would gradually gain one or two points at different innings.

Because of this, by the end of the game, the Rangers won with a final score of 1-5.

The second game on Feb. 4, had both teams back on the field.

The goals of both teams became apparent as the Rams struggled to catch back up and the Rangers were determined to maintain their lead.

Like the one before it, this game started with the Rams taking the first point and the Rangers were able to gradually surpass the Rams’ score.

Toward the end, this game started to look like a repeat of the previous game. The Rangers had one more point than the Rams and the game was nearly over.

However, on the very last pitch, due to a home run, the Rams picked up three points, putting them ahead of the Rangers with a final score of 5-3.

Which left the teams with a tie breaker finale on Feb. 5 as both teams fought for who would be the the cumulative winner of the series.

Though both teams put a great amount of effort in, it was during this game that ASU managed to come out on top with a final score of 11-9, leaving the Rams the with their first win to kick off the season.

This means a little more due to the fact that this is currently the Rams’ last scheduled game against the Regis Rangers.

It was during this series that ASU saw the official return of pitcher Joe Hauser, who suffered from a life-threatening injury in December 2016, which lowered his chances of coming back to baseball at all.

The Rams’ next baseball game will be on Feb. 11 against the Southeastern Oklahoma State University Savage Storm, who currently have a record of 1-2 .
