MUSKOGEE, Okla. — Bacone spoiled Texas College’s strong starts, scoring six unanswered runs in the first game, and the final 11 runs of the second, to complete a three-game sweep over Texas College on Saturday.

Texas College carried a three-run lead into the seventh inning of the first game prior to losing 6-3. The Steers led the second game by two runs through the fifth prior to losing 16-7. 

Bacone opened the three-game series with a 9-5 win on Friday, scoring the final five runs.

Bacone balanced 17 errors with 30 hits over the three games. TC issued 21 walks in the series.

Agustin Enriquez had two of TC’s three extra-base hits in the series, including a 2-for-3 effort with a triple on Friday. 

The Steers’ losing streak reached four games. TC lost both games of a doubleheader at Centenary (4-1, 10-4) earlier in the week, which followed a split with LSU-Alexandria (5-7, 12-11) the previous week. 

The Steers return home on Friday to play host to Northwood.
