BEAUMONT, Texas - Lamar got a complete-game pitching performance for the third straight game as David Carver limited the Washington baseball team to one run on four hits over nine innings as the Cardinals beat the Huskies, 6-1, Sunday at Vincent-Beck Stadium.
Carver (1-1) didn't walk a batter and struck out six. The only run he allowed was in the first inning as the Cardinals (7-2) held the Huskies scoreless over the final eight innings.
Lamar tied it at 1-1 in the bottom of the first as V.J. Bunner doubled to lead off. He eventually scored on a single from Darian Johnson to knot the score.
The Cardinals took the lead in the third. After a pair of singles and a sacrifice bunt, DH Seth Dornak laid down a squeeze bunt to give Lamar a 2-1 lead.
In the fifth, Lamar added three more runs. Johnson singled and scored from first on a Brad Picha double and Picha. Then, after a Dornak single, Picha scored on a groundout. A single from catcher Brandon Provost drove in one more to stretch the Lamar lead to 5-1. In the sixth, Bunner knocked his second double of the game and scored on an errant throw to up the advantage to 6-1.
UW starting pitcher Will Ballowe, a freshman making his first appearance, was saddled with the loss. In his two and one-third innings, he gave up two runs.
