Bison Take Down CSW, 14-3

February 8, 2008


OBU, earlier national leaders in runs per game at 16 heading into the contest, trailed 2-0 after the top of the first, but tied the game when Christian Ruiz doubled and eventually scored on a balk and Joshua Collazo sacrifice fly.

CSW scored their final run in the top of the second for a 3-2 lead that lasted until OBU struck for three runs in the third inning. The Bison got a sacrifice fly by Chris Chambers, an RBI single by Collazo and a bases-loaded walk from Frank Avilla.

OBU tacked on five in the fourth on a grand slam by Collazo and an RBI single by Chambers.

Chambers added another RBI single in the fifth for an 11-3 lead.

The Mustangs gifted OBU its final three runs with a bases loaded walk to Mason Reilly, a wild pitch that allowed Josh Kirkpatrick to score, and the bases-loaded plunking of Chambers.

Collazo finished with two hits and six RBI, while Chambers had a pair of hits and four runs batted in. Christian Ruiz had three hits, while Kyle Cooper and Kirkpatrick also added two each.

Brent Robison (2-0) picked up the win with three scoreless innings from Josh Palmer for the save.

OBU was playing a late game with host Hardin-Simmons University Friday.
