'Roo Baseball Falls Twice to Dallas

'Roo Baseball Falls Twice to Dallas

The Austin College baseball team dropped both halves of its doubleheader against the University of Dallas on Saturday, falling 5-4 in game one and 8-2 in game two. The 'Roos are now 4-20 overall and 2-9 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

The 'Roos managed just two hits in game one but took a 4-2 lead into the sixth inning thanks to four errors by Dallas, with Gus Daniel and Hunter Wilson each delivering an RBI. However, the Crusaders tied things up with a pair of runs in the sixth and got a walk-off victory with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Patrick Renz took the loss in relief, surrendering a run on two hits in 0.2 innings of work.

In game two, the 'Roos fell behind 5-0 after two innings and were never able to turn things around, as Austin College scored in the third but the Crusaders answered in the fourth to make it 6-1. The 'Roos added another run in the fifth, but once again Dallas responded to make it 7-2. UD would go on to add one more run in the seventh to push it to an 8-2 margin.

Daniel, Dylan Day, Will Schommer, and Jeremy Halford each had a pair of hits in the loss, and Josh Lewis took the loss after allowing five runs, four earned, on seven hits in 1.0 innings of work.
