Lions Lose In Ninth To Panthers
The teams attempted to play a doubleheader Saturday, but rain caused the postponement of the nightcap in the bottom of the first. The game is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Trailing 2-0 in the seventh, UAPB struck for three runs. Ricardo Sanchez doubled off the wall in right field and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Jarficur Parker. Tywan Mackey Jr. then ripped a triple to center, scoring Sanchez to get the Lions on the board. Larry Sims was then hit by a pitch. With two outs, Ryan Mallison reached on an infield single to first, scoring Mackey, and pinch runner Davion White scored on an error as the Golden Lions took a 4-3 lead.
However, Prairie View A&M scored two runs in the top of the ninth to take the win.
