Baseball Drops Pair at Dallas

The Austin College baseball team dropped both halves of its doubleheader at the University of Dallas on Saturday, falling 4-1 and 3-2 against the Crusaders. The 'Roos are now 9-14 overall and 0-9 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

In the first game, Dallas broke what had been a scoreless tie in the fifth inning with a run, and added another in the sixth to make it 2-0. Two more runs crossed for the Crusaders in the eighth to make it 4-0, and Austin College was only able to get one run back in the top of the ninth to make it a 4-1 final. Christian Thomas picked up an RBI in the inning for Austin College.

Brett Moody took the loss after surrendering three runs - two earned - on just three hits with six strikeouts in 7.2 innings of work. Austin Dudley and RJ Melton each had two hits in the loss.

In game two, Dallas plated a run in the second and another in the third to once again take a 2-0 lead, and the margin grew to 3-0 in the sixth. Austin College brought one run home in the top of the seventh when Dudley scored on a ground out by Melton, and Dudley knocked in a run in the eighth to cut it to a 3-2 game. However, that's as close as Austin College would get.

Mychael Parish tossed a complete game, allowing three runs on seven hits to take the loss. Jeremy Halford went 2-for-3 to pace the 'Roos on offense.
