The Rams opened their season with a doubleheader against McMurry University and walked away with a win.
“It feels good to start off with a win,” junior Hayden Elrod said. “When you get a win everyone is going to be excited.”
The Rams finished the day with a total of 22 hits.
Four hits each came from senior Tyler Coughenour and junior Blake Bass.
Added to the hits was two triples made by freshman Nehwon Norkeh.
“We did enough things that we needed to do to win,” Head Coach Kevin Brooks said. “We had a really good start in pitching and some timely hitting.”
In game one, senior Jake Feckley had eight strikeouts and earned the win in seven innings of work.
In game two, senior Reggie Rodriguez and Bass had two RBI, while Coughenour delivered the first home run of the season.
Rodriguez said the team chemistry was really good for their first games.
“We are not just like a team, we are more like a family,” he said. “We are all in together.”
Rodriguez said the team is hoping to add another win to their record.
