Beating the weather: Baseball victorious against New Mexico State

The Ute baseball team (9-10) made a statement before the weather had a chance to intervene at Cate Field on the campus of Salt Lake Community College on Tuesday afternoon.

The U plated five of their first six hitters in the lineup in the first inning to take a 5-0 lead over New Mexico State that they would never relinquish, holding on to win 6-4.

Ryan Khoury sparked the offensive outburst with a leadoff walk, and Bret Baldwin knocked him in with an RBI triple to right field. The Aggies filled the bases with Utes again before pitcher Brian Sizemore walked Jay Brossman and tossed two more wild pitches to make it 4-0. An RBI single from junior Erich Kemp capped off the inning.

The Aggies changed pitchers after two-thirds of an inning, and all of the U’s early runs were credited to Sizemore.

The Utes wouldn’t score again until the eighth inning, when Khoury smacked a solo shot to give the U a 6-4 lead. It was his third homer of the season. The senior went 2-3 on the day with two RBIs.

Ute junior hurler Lucas Trinnaman allowed just two of NMSU’s 11 hits in his four innings of work, striking out two. Freshmen Brad DeVore picked up his third save of the year after coming on in relief in the seventh.

The second half of the doubleheader that was to make up for Sunday’s delayed action was cancelled altogether.

Next up for the U is a three-game road trip against St. Mary’s in California.
