UTA baseball loses 5-2 in home opener against Stephen F. Austin State University

A limited number of guests covered in blankets and winter gear witnessed the baseball team (1-2) fall to Stephen F. Austin State University 5-2 in the Mavericks’ home opener at Clay Gould Ballpark on Friday night.

The game was at a stalemate for the first two and a half innings, with both teams being held scoreless.

It wasn’t until the bottom of the third inning that the Mavericks put up the first run, when junior infielder Boone Montgomery scored from third base on a wild pitch, giving UTA an early 1-0 lead.

After pitching five scoreless innings, junior pitcher Carlos Tavera was relieved, and the bullpen was given the task of closing the game.
