No. 16 Cameron sweeps twinbill
Larsson paces Aggies with two home runs in first game
LAWTON, Okla. – No. 16 Cameron pounded out double-digit hits in both games of Saturday’s double header to complete the three-game sweep of Eastern New Mexico.
Cameron (9-1, 8-1 LSC) won the first game, scheduled for seven innings, 8-3 and forced the scheduled nine-inning game to end early after a 16-3 thumping of the Greyhounds through seven frames.
In game one, Cameron center fielder Chase Larsson got the action going early with a blast to right field to give the Aggies a 1-0 lead. Larsson then doubled to right field in the third to bring in Josh Dawson to make it 2-0.
Cameron extended the lead in the sixth inning, adding six runs after recording two outs right away in the frame.
Left fielder Taylor Lyons sharply hit the ball to the short stop, who was unable to handle it. The error allowed first baseman Andrew Garcia to score to make it 3-0. A Dawson double then drove in two runs while Brad Blumer came up with a single to drive in another for a 6-0 lead.
Larsson added to his impressive day with another home run, this time putting two runs on the board to make it 8-0.
The Greyhounds threatened in the seventh, adding three runs of their own, but were unable to complete any comeback as Davidson picked up the win. Davidson pitched six complete innings, gave up seven hits, three earned runs and struck out six.
In game two, the Ags got going early with four runs in the first inning including another Larsson double to drive in the game’s first run.
Up 4-0 in the fourth, Kenny Held took a 1-1 pitch out of the park for a three-run shot to bring in Blumer and Larsson and make the game a 7-0 Aggie advantage. Cameron added two more in the inning to make it 9-0.
The Greyhounds added a single run in their half of the fifth to make it 9-1 before Cameron exploded for six more runs in the bottom of the frame.
Dawson did half the damage in the inning with his 2-0 double to right field to drive in three runs.
Up 15-1, the Ags added one more run in the sixth on a Held home run.
Eastern (1-8, 0-5 LSC) added two runs off Aggie reliever Daniel Romero in his first appearance of the season but that was as close as it would come.
