Coming off of a tough loss, the Rams looked for redemption going into their contest on March 7 against Porterville College, winning 17-2 at Euless park.

Going into the first inning, the Rams started off pretty strong out on the field with pitcher Noah Parsons doing well on the mount, going five innings strong, giving up 0 earned runs and striking five batters – at times the other team was not able to match his pitching speed going up to bat.

“Getting on the mount at home is a great feeling,” said sophomore Parsons.

Defense was not the reason why they won the contest. Days before, the players worked on batting placement, just focused on having better averages on the plate by shooting for singles and doubles.

Instead of settling for singles and doubles, the power was in full swing for the Rams, hitting three home runs coming from second baseman Niko Rossi, third baseman Fernando Geuvara and Ian Ross.

This win is what the Rams needed to get back on track after suffering two straight losses.

“I think as a team we came off a bad lose and we were ready to come out and play just an overall good game,” sophomore outfielder Nick Sheehan said.

The Pirates were able to get two runs into home plate from one error that was made during the game by the Rams.

The Rams will be travelling to Porterville on March 8 and their next home contest will be March 10 against Porterville College for a third and final time.
