CU baseball still struggling in 2018
STEPHENVILLE, Texas – Cameron's baseball team continued to struggle as it fell to Tarleton State Sunday by a 10-3 score in the final game of the weekend series.
Cameron, which lost the series three games to one, is now 8-10 on the season, while Tarleton State is 12-9. The positive is that these first games against Lone Star Conference opponents are not figured into actual league play which begins next weekend, as the Aggies return home to host No. 19 Texas A&M-Kingsville for a four game series starting Friday.
Sunday's game started out as a pitcher's duel, as neither team scored a run through the first three innings. Cameron was the first to strike in the top of the fourth, putting two runs on the board. Trey Bigford reached on an error to leadoff the inning and then came around to score later after stealing second and two more errors by the Texans. Briton Schiewe, who reached on an error himself, came into score a batter later when Kameron Goodsingles and the TSU left fielder misplayed the ball.
Tarleton State responded in the fifth by scoring three runs, and then added to its lead in the sixth with two more runs, giving the hosts a 5-2 advantage.
In the next half inning, Luke Hughes drove in Colton Adams on a fielder's choice play to chip into the TSU lead, but that would be the last time an Aggie crossed the plate in the game. The Texans added three more runs in the seventh inning and another two in the eighth to give them their 10-3 lead.
