The Ram Baseball team took on Lubbock Christian University this weekend at home.

The Rams improved their record to 7-1 as they swept the Chaps of LCU three games to none. This puts the Rams on a six-game win streak to start the spring season.

Sunday the Rams held the Chaps to a single run while grabbing four for their selves.

Junior Bryce Zak, No. 34, was the starting pitcher for the Rams this game. In five innings Zak was able to strike out six batters and only allowed three hits and one run.

Trae Davis, the relief pitcher, was able to come in and put in some work. Davis struck out five batters in the sixth and seventh innings combined, three of which he got back-to-back-to-back in the sixth inning and the last two in the seventh.

“This weekend was a really good weekend for us,” Davis said. “We pitched outstanding. Lubbock Christian is a really good hitting team and we held them to three runs all weekend.”

Davis said that that was the first time in five years LCU has been swept.

On the offensive side, the Rams held three runs to none all the way until the sixth inning when Shane Crawford of the Chaps was able to sneak a score in. However, that didn’t help, as the Rams answered back quickly in the seventh ending with Rams senior Cody Selmer putting the nail in the coffin with the final run of the game.

“Not only did we pitch great and shut them down hitting, but we also played great defense and have continued to hit the ball well,” Davis said. “We are on pace to set many records hitting and pitching this year, and if we keep improving and getting better we are going to be really good and win a lot of games.”
