Pack downs Regis, lives to play another day
RMAC Tournament: #5 CSU-Pueblo 13, #6 Regis 3
KEARNEY, Neb. - CSU-Pueblo put it together in a big way Thursday in an RMAC Tournament elimination game vs. Regis, stringing together 15 hits and claiming a 13-3 win over the Rangers.
With the win, the ThunderWolves will play at approximately 5 p.m. CST against Mesa State in another elimination game.
The ThunderWolves started strong, scoring three in the first inning. A two-run double by Jon Proesl (Sr., California City, Calif.) did the most damage, followed by an RBI-double by Juan Martinez (Sr., Caricuao, Venezuela) that put the Pack up 3-0.
The lead was extended to 5-0 when Mark Sayas (Sr., Las Vegas, Nev.) fired a two run bomb to left field, leaving the ThunderWolves in the drivers' seat for the day.
On the bump, Josh Herback-South (Sr., Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) held it down for the Pack, going eight innings and allowing just six hits. He only gave up one extra base hit, and at one point retired nine straight Regis batters.
A healthy five Pack batters turned in two-hit games, headlined by Sayas' 2-for-5 performance with a double, a homer and three runs scored. Second baseman Mike Sanchez (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) also ran his hit streak to 13 games after his eighth inning RBI single.
