AMK baseball continued play as they traveled to Abilene for a quick four game series

by -

Breaking even in Abilene is exactly what the Texas A&M-Kingsville baseball team did this past weekend as the team split a four game series with the Abilene Christian.

The Wildcats won the first and third game with scores of 4 to 1 and 1 to 0

Strong pitching once again was the key for the Javelina success In the first three games of the Lone Star Conference series, the Javelina starting pitchers did not allow a run in 19.1 innings.

Including a shutout performance by pitcher Adam Aspaas who scattered five hits and one walk over nine innings as the Javelinas won 11 to 0.

Zach Pettiford  ended the series  with a strong outing allowing only one run in the first inning scattering seven hits and three walks over five innings to improve to 2-0 on the year to help AMK win 3-1.

During the four game series AMK pounded out 11 runs on 24 hits while increasing their batting average to .248  and lowering their ERA to 2.47.

The Javelinas (l5-7,4-4) team are back in action on Friday March 30 at LSC rival Tarleton State for the first of four games.
