The New Mexico State baseball team lost the regular-season finale 7-6 to Seattle U in Bellevue, Wash., Saturday, May 18. The Aggies finish the regular season 28-26 and 13-14 in Western Athletic Conference play and the Redhawks ended their year at 21-33 and 10-16 in league play.

The Aggies started the game with back-to-back home runs as senior Parker Hipp hit a two-run shot to right field, which was followed by a solo shot that was blasted by senior Bobby Lecount to left field. Hipp tallied home run No. 9 of the year while Lecount marked his 14th homer of 2013.

NM State held the lead in the top of the second after the Redhawks put two runs on the board in the bottom of the first. Three Aggies crossed the plate in three times in the top of the second with junior Quinnton Mack getting on with a double and junior Michael Medina bringing him in on a single. Junior Tanner Rust brought in Medina and freshman Derek Umphres, who got on with a walk, picking up two RBIs on a double down the left-field line.

Reliever Trey Higginbotham entered the game in the bottom of the second when Seattle U pulled to within two at 6-4. He kept the Redhawks off balance through the middle innings, working 4.1 innings, striking out two batters.

The Aggie offense slowed down with only three hits after the second inning while Seattle U took the lead in the bottom of the sixth when it scored three runs on four hits and an error.

Seattle’s Kyle Doyle was given the win, while Higginbotham was credited with the loss and is now 1-1 on the year. Senior Evan Mott, who finished the game picking up a strikeout, broke the NM State record for most appearances in a season. He ended the regular-season with 31 appearances surpassing Orlando Griego, who had 31 showings in 1969 and Scott Coffman, who made 31 appearances last year.

The Aggies will head now head to Grand Prairie, Texas to partake in the 2013 Western Athletic Conference Tournament, which starts on Wednesday, March 22. The WAC office will be releasing the tournament bracket following tomorrow’s game between San Jose State and Cal State Bakersfield.

*Yesterday’s 4-0 win over Seattle U marked the 500th win that head coach Rocky Ward has been a part of. Although, 69 wins were officially credited to Gary Ward in 2001 and 2002, Rocky Ward program continues to show success as his team has over 175 wins in the past five years.
