Cowboy Baseball didn’t have the best weekend in Phoenix.
After dropping Friday’s opener 6-1, the Cowboys just weren’t able to bounce back.
The Cowboys just could not hit the ball in the first game losing 6-1. They had four hits to the Lopes 12. Ryan Sluder had the Cowboys only run scored on an RBI double from Dustin Williams. Meanwhile the Lopes were able score six runs playing small ball with a double here and a single there. They scored early and never looked back. Tyler Buffett pitched four innings giving up five runs and eight hits. Meanwhile the Lopes’ Jake Wong went six innings and didn’t give up any runs and only one hit. The run was given up by Lopes’ pitcher AJ Franks.
This game went better then the first, but the Cowboys almost let it get away winning 6-5. The Cowboys kept the Lopes scoreless until the 8th inning when the Lopes started to get some. The Cowboys had nine hits to the Lopes ten but managed to score more runs and win the game. Jensen Elliott got the win for the Cowboys pitching 6.1 innings and not giving up any runs and only three hits. Degan Harte got the loss giving up five hits and three runs. Most of the Cowboys runs came with Jeramy Smith on the mound giving up three runs.
In the rubber match of the series the Cowboys fell short losing 4-0. The Cowboys were able to get seven hits but couldn’t score on any of them. Meanwhile the Lopes had eight hit and scored runs on half of them. Carson Teel took the loss for the Cowboys going 5.1 innings and giving up seven hits and all four of the Lopes runs. Jake Rapavich got the win going six innings and giving up no runs on four hits. The Lopes started scoring in the third inning and then were able to score two more in the fifth and one in the sixth.

The Cowboys (1-2) will try to put this series behind them and move on to play Arizona State on Tuesday. If they want to get back to Omaha, they’re going to have to figure how to hit the ball and not give up so many runs. This weekend will be the Cowboys first home series against Texas State.
