The Rams baseball team split the series with the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds this weekend by winning the finale.

On Friday, they won with a score of 22-5. In Saturday’s doubleheader, they lost both games 4-9 and 4-11. They won on Sunday 7-3.

The Rams are now 28-14 on the season and 9-7 in the Lone Star Conference play. 

Head Coach Kevin Brooks said junior pitcher Shannon Broussard did well on the mound.

“He kept us in the game and picked up a couple of times when we made some mistakes behind him,” Brooks said. 

Broussard said he wanted to give his team a chance to win.

“They have all the faith in me, and I believe in them too,” Broussard said.

Brooks said they finally got a big hit from senior Jacob Boston and a few other players. 

“That’s not something we’ve really seen this year, so hopefully we can build on it,” Brooks said.

ENMU had the Rams in the first five innings of the final game. Broussard went to the mound for his first start this season when their opponents quickly got a run in the first inning.

The Greyhounds had the lead through the sixth inning, 3-0. 

Broussard ended his pitching in the top of the sixth; he ended his day with a career high in innings pitched while striking out two batters.

Junior Bradley Mathiowetz came to the plate with the bases loaded when he made a big hit to allow two of his players to score.

Boston made his big hit, also bringing in two runs. 

Redshirt freshman Joe Scott Pace hit a single to left field, bringing in two more runs. The score was a 6-3. 

Senior Elias Aguirre scored ASU’s final run of the day. 

“We’re not going to stop working and trying to figure out the best way we can be the best team possible,” Brooks said. “The opponent doesn’t matter; we need to fix ourselves.”

The Rams will face UTPB this coming weekend out of town.

“Hopefully we can have a good week of practice and go put it into motion down in Odessa,” Brooks said.

The team will be back on Foster Field May 4-6 to face West Texas A&M University.
