LAWTON, Okla. — Senior Drew Reidt allowed five hits over 7 2/3 innings, and Cameron got its second Lone Star Conference win of the season, 4-2 over Eastern New Mexico University on Friday.
Reidt (3-4) retired the first 11 Greyhounds he faced, and didn’t allow an ENMU baserunner past first base until the sixth inning while lowering his season ERA to 2.53.
Cameron (7-14, 2-9) scored twice on errors, once in the first and once in the seventh, and got a third-inning RBI groundout from Kas Sanders and a run-scoring single in the sixth from first baseman Brad Blumer.
The Greyhounds (14-11, 4-9) scored both of their runs on Matthew Burks’ first homer of the season, an eighth-inning shot to left field. Catcher Chad Highberger, who also came home on Burks’ homer, went 2-for-3 on the day.
The teams will play again in an 11 a.m. (CST) doubleheader, then close up the series with a single game set for noon (CST) Sunday.
Zia softball swept at Tarleton State
Tarleton State had little trouble with Eastern New Mexico, pulling an 10-2, 8-0 doubleheader sweep over the visiting Zias to pull to .500 in Lone Star Conference play.
The TexAnns (13-5, 5-5 LSC) pounded out 22 hits, including a 4-for-5 day with four runs for catcher Taylor Wells during the two-game set. Both games were called early due to the eight-runs-after-five mercy rule.
The Zias (7-19, 1-9) managed 10 hits on the day, with freshman shortstop Audrey Velasquez going 2-for-3 in the opener with an RBI double, but never led in their eighth and ninth straight losses.
The teams will wrap up the series with a noon CST doubleheader, and the Zias will be back home Monday for an 11 a.m. doubleheader against UC-Colorado Springs.
