UTSA 6, New Mexico State 5
Box Score

SAN ANTONIO — (UTSA Media Relations) New Mexico State scored twice in the ninth inning and had the tying run at third base, but Matt Sims induced back-to-back fly outs to close out the game and UTSA picked up a 6-5 victory on Saturday at Roadrunner Field.

The Aggies (27-23, 12-11 WAC) trailed 6-3 entering the ninth, but back-to-back fielding errors by the Roadrunners (27-22, 11-11 WAC) opened the door for a potential comeback.

Sims then entered the game and gave up a run-scoring single to Michael Medina, which cut UTSA's lead to two. Two batters later, Tanner Rust singled through the right side and sent Kent Blackstone across the play to pull the Aggies to within a run. Sims then forced Parker Hipp to fly out to right field and, four pitches later, induced a Robert Lecount pop out to Daniel Rockett in shallow center to end the contest.
