UTSA Baseball’s good run has come to an end as Columbia managed a 4-2 victory to avoid a series sweep on Sunday at Roadrunner Field.
It was a windy day in San Antonio and that was having a significant impact on the game as errors lead to runs.
Kevin Roy started on the mound for Columbia and held the Roadrunners to just one earned run in his 7.2 innings.
After UTSA opened the scoring, the wind hurt UTSA as it resulted in Tony Ramirez dropping a fly-ball that would have ended the third, putting runners in scoring position, which allowed Robb Peller to step up and hit a two run single to put Columbia in front.
In the fifth UTSA managed to make it 2-2 as a fielding error from Aarom Silbar allowed Ramirez to run in to the plate from third.
A wild pitch from Cody Brannon allowed Columbia to hit the lead before a pop-up to second for an infield fly rule out was poorly dealt with, allowing Silbar to make up for his error and tag from third to score the winning run at 4-2 in the seventh.
In the ninth UTSA had a chance but a strike-out lead to a base runner being caught stealing, ending the game at 4-2.
