It was a frustrating night for UTSA Baseball at Roadrunner Field on Wednesday night as four errors lead to two runs to give Lamar a 3-2 win over the Roadrunners.
The leader for Lamar was Jude Vidirine as he was able to manage a 2-for-4 and managing one RBI as they fought back against their former Southland rivals to split the series.
The Cardinals got things going in the opening inning coming off of an error which allowed Brandon Provost to get in to base, which saw Reed Seeley score.
The game was largely defensive though as both sides struggled to get the bats going as both sides had their defense working hard to keep the scores down.
The second run didn’t come until the sixth, and again it came off of a UTSA mistake, as the Roadrunners loaded the bases before giving up a walk, allowing Jake Sutton to just stroll home from third.
But UTSA responded in the bottom half as Andre Vieyra, in as a pinch hitter, hit an RBI single to left allowing Mike Warren to score.
But very quickly Lamar were back to their two run lead, after being put on base by a dropped fly ball, Sam Bumpers was allowed to score on a double play. UTSA got the outs but couldn’t prevent the score, adding to the frustration of another unearned run.
Jeremy Filipek came on for the Roadrunners as a reliever and struck out five of the last six battes to put UTSA in with a shout of getting the game to extras.
In the ninth UTSA were able to manage another run as RJ Perucki hit a single that allowed John Welborn to get home, giving UTSA hope of a come back. But that was it as Perucki was stranded for the final of 3-2.
