SAN ANGELO, Texas — One run - that's all that was needed to potentially extend the season of Angelo State baseball. A late comeback was not enough for the Rams to move on to the DII college world series. Two runs in the last two innings got ASU one run shy of beating top seed Colorado Mesa in game three of the South Central Super Regional on Saturday night at Foster Field.
The Rams only had two hits going into the top of the seventh down 3-0. ASU junior catcher Nick Seginowich led off with a double with no outs. Three straight strike outs by Maverick pitcher Trevin Reynolds would strand Seginowich on second. Reynolds would finish with nine strike outs in 7.1 innings.
Angelo State's Josh Elvir would deliver a RBI single in the 8th to cut the lead down to two. Seginowich came in the clutch again in the ninth with a lead off triple off of Maverick pitcher Will Dixon. Ram's senior Lachlan Mayo would drive Seginowich in at the next at bat but that would be it for the Ram's comeback.
The Rams were a very resilient team, winning two straight last weekend with their back against the wall verses Rogers State to take the South Central Region Two Championship. The same luck was not on their side on Saturday night. Angelo State baseball finished one of the best seasons in program history with the record of 46-11.
