Bears silence Lobo bats

The New Mexico baseball team's hot bats were cooled off Saturday in a 6-1 loss to visiting Missouri State.

The Bears (5-1) improved to 3-0 in Albuquerque, having also twice defeated Northern Illinois in the Lobo Invite.

This game was tied 1-1 in the sixth inning when Alex Jefferson and Dylan Becker drew back-to-back walks with one out. Senior A.J. Carman came in out of the bullpen for starter Colton Thomson and promptly walked Spencer Johnson to load the bases.

Conor Smith then reached on an error by Carman, with Jefferson scoring the go-ahead run on the misplay.

Eric Cheray then really made Carman pay by blasting a grand slam down the right field line.

UNM (3-3) mustered seven hits, but the Lobos' only run came in the second inning on Ryan Padilla's RBI single. UNM left the bases loaded in the fifth without scoring.

Thomson (0-1) took the loss as he was charged with three of the runs in 5.1 innings of work. He allowed two hits and three walks and struck out four.

Matt Hall (1-0) was solid for MSU, allowing just the one run on six hits and two walks while striking out six.

The Lobos play a doubleheader Sunday, starting with Missouri State at 10 a.m. and then Northern Illinois at 2 p.m.
