Bison Get Home Sweep Over Northwestern

March 12, 2005

Oklahoma Baptist improved to 3-1 in the Sooner Athletic Conference by sweeping home twin bill over Northwestern Oklahoma State University 3-0 and 4-1 on Saturday.

Tabor Woolard, fresh from his perfect game against Peru State, went the distance in the opener, checking the Rangers on three hits and a walk while striking out four batters. He faced just four batters over the minimum.

Brent Terrell went the distance in the second game, allowing just one run on two hits and a walk.

The Bison offense came together in the fourth inning, scoring the game’s only three runs. Felix Peguero led off with a double and scored on Danny Guidry’s double down the left field line.

Guidry moved to third on a single by Adam Dalby and scored on a sacrifice fly by Rett Terrell — a ball caught in shallow left by Ranger shortstop Justin Long. Pinch runner Daniel Hayes scored from first when Isaac Romero’s single to left was misplayed by the outfielder.

Rett Terrell had two hits to lead OBU’s six-hit performance.

In the second game, OBU, 19-6 overall, again scored all of its runs in the fourth inning.

After falling behind 1-0 on a sacrifice fly by Danny Gonzalez, OBU got its four runs and half of its six hits in the bottom of the fourth.

Rett Terrell got things going with a one-out single and moved to third on a base hit by Isaac Romero. Kip Keith then laid down a squeeze bunt and eluded the tag of the first baseman for an RBI as Romero moved to second and Terrell scored.

With two outs, Frankie Ibarra was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Nick Bakich, who delivered a clutch triple to right center, driving home three runs.

Rett Terrell again was the lone Bison to get more than one hit.

The Bison are scheduled to play at Bacone Tuesday. OBU has altered its schedule, ironically because of good weather. Since there have been no rain outs, in order to comply with the NAIA maximum games rule, the Bison will not play Texas Wesleyan on the March 18 and may play just two games with Missouri Valley College on March 16 and 17, instead of the scheduled three.
