BASEBALL: Lamar shows positives in loss to UTRGV

first_img Next UpIngram started the night off with a bang, singling over his shortstop counterpart to lead off the first. That inspired a first pitch moonshot to right field from Chase Whetsel scoring both and giving the Cards a 2-0 lead after one in Vincent-Beck Stadium. Big Red held that advantage through three innings and came within a few inches of growing that lead in the first, second, and third, stranding five base runners thanks to nifty infield defense for UTRGV.The Vaqueros jumped ahead in the fourth. An interesting strike zone led to singles by the first three UTRGV batters in the inning, and a walk followed with the bases loaded, giving UTRGV its first run of the game. A single allowed another Vaquero run to come home, and a double scored two more for UTRGV. Ingram caught a line drive and threw home to beat the runner on third for a double play to end the inning, but UTRGV held a 4-2 lead heading into the bottom of the fourth.Lamar had at least one base runner in four of the final six innings but couldn’t push any of those six runners across. UTRGV scored one more on an error, two singles, and a balk on a disputed timeout to set the final score: UTRGV 5, Lamar 2. BEAUMONT – The final score of 5-2 might be misleading, but there was evidence that Lamar (3-8) was beginning to put the pieces of the 2018 season’s puzzle together Friday night in a loss against the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (6-4).Senior Phil Ingram went 3 of 4 on the night, and freshman Chet Jones threw three scoreless innings to close the game for the Cardinals.“We’ve been through the ringer here with 11 games in 15 days,” said head coach Will Davis. “It’s been a lot to ask some of these young guys. When you have a bad game, you’ve got to answer the bell the next day. That’s tough, especially for young hitters. We’re asking nine freshmen and a sophomore to do all this, and when they have a bad game they all have to go back out there and do it again the next day. There’s no time to clear your head, and I think that’s contributed to some of the issues we’ve had.” “I am encouraged,” said Davis. “If it was a lack of talent I’d be worried, but it’s just a lack of experience. We’re going to keep running them out there, and we’ve seen improvement. Chase Kemp has been swinging it a bit better the past few days, and good things are on the horizon for him. The future is bright here. They’re the top-ranked recruiting class, but they’re still freshmen. That’s what we’re dealing with. We have 18-year-olds playing 22-year-olds.”Southpaw Noah Sills (2-0, 0.00 ERA) will start for Lamar in today’s game, scheduled for a 2 p.m. start in Vincent-Beck Stadium. He’ll face UTRGV’s left-hand pitcher Jorge Flores (1-1, 14.54 ERA).last_img read more

Case of Hedley frontman Jacob Hoggard put over to next month

first_imgTORONTO – The case of Hedley frontman Jacob Hoggard, who faces three sex-related charges, was put over to next month after a brief hearing in Toronto on Wednesday.Hoggard’s lawyer Ian Smith says his client’s case will next be in court on Oct. 10.The 34-year-old musician was arrested in July and charged with one count of sexual interference and two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm.Police have said the charges relate to three separate incidents involving a woman and a girl under the age of 16 that allegedly occurred in the Toronto area in 2016.Hoggard, who is from Vancouver, has previously denied ever engaging in non-consensual sexual behaviour, but has said he behaved in a way that objectifies women.His band went on indefinite hiatus earlier this year after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light but before the charges were laid.Hedley had, by that point, already been dropped by its management team, blacklisted by scores of radio stations and abandoned by musicians booked as tour openers.Hedley also withdrew itself from consideration for the Juno Awards in Vancouver earlier this year and backed out of performing on the telecast.last_img read more
