NMSU baseball sweeps final WAC double header
NMSU Athletics
New Mexico State
Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 10:03pm

The New Mexico State baseball team swept the doubleheader over Chicago State winning game one 8-2 and game two 22-15 at Presley Askew Field, Saturday, May 17. NM State is now 21-19 overall and 11-13 in Western Athletic Conference play.

Game One Recap
The Aggies won game one of the doubleheader 8-2 and moved to 11-13 in WAC play. NM State had already clinched a spot in the 2014 WAC Tournament after North Dakota lost to Sacramento State, Friday night.

NM State crossed the plate eight times on 11 hits and committed just one error in the game, while the Aggie pitching staff held CSU to just two runs on four hits. Starting pitcher Trey Higginbotham went 2.2 innings while striking out two batters and giving up two runs. The first run of the game crossed the plate in the top of the first inning on a sacrifice fly. The Cougars would score again in the top of the third to take a 2-0 lead but the Aggie pitchers settled down and held CSU scoreless from the fourth through the ninth.

Left-hand pitcher Robert Kraft earned the win after he entered the game in the fourth inning, striking out five batters and giving up just one hit. Trey Gonzales pitched for the final two innings of the game allowing one hit, while striking out one Cougar batter.

The Aggie took the lead in the bottom of the sixth scoring seven runs on four hits. Senior Michael Paulson got things started with a lead-off walk and sophomore Michael Paulson followed that with a single to centerfield. NM State would go thru the lineup and Paulson would return to the dish to hit a three-RBI double to center field to give his team a 7-2 advantage. The final Aggie run came in bottom of the seventh on an RBI single by Kent Blackstone.

Game Two Recap
NM State fell behind 5-0, 8-7, and 13-9 but ended up winning 22-15 on 17 hits and 16 walks. Right-hand pitcher Matt Moriarity was the winning pitcher and is 1-0 on the season while Cougar pitcher Matt Schmidt was credited with the loss.

The seven-inning non-conference game lasted 3 hours and 3 minutes with senior lead-off hitter Michael Medina going 3-of-4 with a double and five RBI. Freshman Lucas Martinez entered the game as a pinch-hitter and stayed in at catcher. He hit his first two home runs of his career and finished the game going 2-of-4 with four RBI and two runs scored. Freshman Austin von Blasingam also came off the bench for NM State and hit a grand slam going 1-for-1 while scoring two runs.

The Aggies posted a big seven-run inning in the first inning, and two six run innings (fifth and sixth). The NM State pitching staff allowed 15 runs while nine of them were earned, although the staff gave up only one walk.

The Aggies head into the 2014 Western Athletic Conference game as the No. 6 seed and will face either Texas-Pan American or Utah Valley on Wednesday, May 21 at 8 p.m. (MT) in Mesa, Ariz.
