Baseball defeated

Northwestern Oklahoma State and Henderson State finished off their series on April 23 where the Reddies came away with the sweep, following a 6-1 victory.

The third game starter for the weekend was freshman Sean Rydell who went 4.1 innings, and surrendered four runs in his outing.

Leading the way at the dish for the Rangers were two batters in Pat Delano and TJ Kassner who each collected two hits on the day. The rest of the Rangers squad had three hits for a seven-hit day.

Following an opening two walks, the Rangers were able to successfully get out of the jam unscathed, following a double play to end the threat.

Northwestern capitalized on the momentum in their first plate appearance as Douglas crossed home plate on an infield single to the right side by Deckard. That would be all the hosts could produce however, but it was good enough for a 1-0 lead.

The Reddies plated a run of their own in the top of the second to knot it up at 1-1 on two hits, while the Rangers came up empty in the second in the runs category.

Following a clean third inning on the mound for Rydell, HSU got the bats rolling in the fourth, scoring three runs to put the score at 4-1.

An early struggle in the fifth frame for Rydell pulled him off the mound, where Nick Llorente came on in relief. Llorente allowed two baserunners, but was able to get out of the threat with no damage done.

The Reddie starter kept the Ranger bats at bay for a good majority of the game after giving up an opening inning run.

Llorente continued to mow down the Reddies as he would get through the seventh with no runs scored, but the visitors got back on the board in the eighth following a laced triple to right center, putting them up 5-1.

Following another scoreless inning in the eighth for the Rangers, the visitors tacked on another run to make it a five-run game at 6-1 which is where the score would stay after another scoreless inning for the home club.
