Baseball: Colonels drop Saturday matchup at UCA, 5-0
CONWAY, Ark. – The Nicholls State University baseball team was limited to four hits in a complete game by Central Arkansas’ Noah Cameron as the Colonels were defeated, 5-0, Saturday evening at Bear Stadium.
Two of the hits were by Alec Paz, who had reached base in every game this season before Friday night’s loss to UCA. Ethan Valdez and Chris Sandberg also singled Saturday against Cameron, who struck out 13 Colonels in the victory.
Jacob Bedevian took the loss, pitching 7.0 innings with two earned runs on seven hits. UCA (8-11, 4-1 SLC) tagged him for a run in the first, third and fifth innings. He finished with six strikeouts and walked none.
The Bears totaled nine hits, with Kolby Johnson, Marco Navarro and Joshmar Doran recording two each. Anderson drove in the first run of the game on a sacrifice fly in the opening inning. Three of the Bears’ five runs were via sac flies.
Nicholls was never able to get much going against Cameron, who improved to 2-0 on the season. Only one runner reached second base after Sandberg singled to lead off the third and Ivan Prejean was hit by a pitch. But a double play ended the threat and it was the first of two double plays that the Colonels hit into.
The other came in the eighth when Valdez led off with a base hit but was then part of a 4-6-3 double play.
Nicholls and UCA wrap up the series Sunday at 1 p.m.
