The Sam Houston State baseball team completed their sweep of UT system schools with a 2-1 defeat of the University of Texas at San Antonio in San Antonio Tuesday evening.
Along with defeating UTSA (24-20) the Bearkats (28-17, 12-6 SLC) have victories over the University of Texas and the University of Texas at Arlington.
Bearkat ace Cody Dickson pitched a scoreless five innings, allowing only two hits to the Roadrunners to improve his season record to 7-4. Dickson has not allowed a run in his past nine innings.
Third baseman Kevin Miller went deep for his first home run of the season to put the Bearkats up 2-0 in the sixth inning. Miller is batting .365 this season and the home run was the senior’s third of his career.
The Bearkats scored a quick run in the top of the first inning after first baseman Jessie Plumlee was hit by a pitch. Miller then singled to move Plumlee to third and designated hitter singled him home.
Logan Boyd came in to relieve Dickson for three innings, allowing one run on two hits while striking out four. Jason Simms threw a scoreless ninth inning and recorded his seventh save of the year.
Roadrunner starter Matt Sims lasted only two innings while allowing one run on two hits. Sims was the first of six Roadrunner pitchers.
No Roadrunner batter was able to muster up more than one hit.
SHSU will host Nicholls State for a three game series starting this Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Don Sanders Stadium.
