Waxahachie, Texas- February 20, 2016- It wasn’t the day the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) baseball team was hoping for.  The Lions lost both games of a doubleheader to MidAmerica Nazarene University (19-1 and 9-3).  The Lions are now 8-8 for the season.  The Pioneers are now 7-0.

Just last week, MidAmerica swept Oklahoma City University (7-3, 7-6).  OCU is ranked no. five in the NAIA Preseason Poll.

The first game was full of MidAmerica hits and a few SAGU errors.  The Lions committed four errors in the first two innings which turned into eight runs.

SAGU’s lone run came after Elijah Young doubled to deep right center.  Next, Chris Wallace singled to left field, scoring Young.

SAGU went through four pitchers and MidAmerica went through three.

In the second game, AJ Munos started on the mound and pitched four innings for the Lions.  He had two strike outs and three hits. Mark Martinez pitched one and 1/3 innings and Collin Gifford pitched one and 2/3 innings.

SAGU got off to the early lead and scored two runs in the first inning.  The leadoff hitter, Josh Terry , singled to center. Jake Payonk grounded out to first, advancing Terry to second. Maverick Keffer doubled to deep-right center, scoring Terry.  Next, Carson Conarty singled to short, advancing Keffer to third. Elijah Young doubled down the left field line, bringing in Keffer.  The Lions left two stranded on base.

The Pioneers went on to score in the third, fourth and fifth innings.

SAGU’s Josh Terry and Maverick Keffer each went one for three with one run.

The Lions will look to get back on track when they travel to take on Wiley College on Friday, February 26, 2016.  Wiley College is currently 2-10.
