SHAWNEE – The Oklahoma Baptist baseball team fell to Arkansas-Monticello, 10-8, in the final game of their weekend series on Saturday.
OBU jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning as Kaimana Bartolome tripled to centerfield to drive in Ramon Enriquez and Jake Gozzo. UAM would answer back by driving in a run in the top of the third inning and another in the top of the fifth. The Weevils would then take the lead on a wild pitch, followed by a grand slam in the top of the seventh to make it 7-3.
The Bison rallied back to tie the game at 7-7 in the eighth inning, but were unable to close the gap, as the Weevils would drive in three runs in the ninth inning to seal the game.
