WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The Southwestern Assemblies of God University softball and baseball teams were in action on a sunny Friday afternoon, playing three local games.

SOFTBALL:

The Lady Lions (11-18, 5-13 in RRAC) dropped a 4-1 decision at home to the third place team, Bacone College (15-18, 13-6 in RRAC). It was SAGU's 10th straight loss and 10th in eleven games at home.

Southwestern led 1-0 on a long double and an RBI single up the middle for a 1-0 lead in the second, though they collected only three hits over the final five innings. The Lions threatened in the sixth when they put two runners on base due to three errors. BC called on their pitching ace, who retired two straight batters to end the inning.

In the seventh the Purple Pride used a walk and a double with out before the Tribe stymied the rally by sitting down the next two batters. 

Momentum swung to the Warriors in the fourth and fifth innings when they collected five hits and two walks to take a 2-1 lead. They finished with a 12-5 advantage in hits.

The teams will play a twinbill on Saturday. The first game will begin at 11:00am and will be followed by a special recognition of two senior players.

BASEBALL DOUBLEHEADER:

SAGU (14-31, 4-20) was swept at No. 25 ranked Texas Wesleyan University (35-12, 18-6 in RRAC) in a pair of well played, 5-2 setbacks at LaGrave Field in Ft. Worth. The Rams extended their winning streak to 15 and improved their home ledger to 20-4.

The Lions outhit the Rams, 6-5, in the opener of a series in which SAGU played mostly reserves. 

In the nightcap a pair of costly errors in the third and fourth innings fueled two rallies by the Rams, who overcame a 1-0 lead by the Lions. Wesleyan owned an 8-5 margin in hits.

SAGU used just three pitchers, all freshmen, in holding down a potent line-up.

The third game in the series was forfeited by SAGU due to a roster shortage.

SAGU is off until Tuesday when they play a doubleheader at Dallas' Reverchon Park against Dallas Christian College (16-33). They will wrap up the season with three home games against Huston-Tillotson University (10-38) during April 19-20.
