UHV Baseball Loses, UHV Men's Golf Wins

Posted: Updated:

St. Mary's Rattlers used two big innings Tuesday night to hand UHV baseball a 9-3 defeat at Riverside Stadium.

The Jaguars fell to 3-7 on the year and return right back to action Wednesday in Corpus Christi when they face Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in a 1 p.m. contest. St. Mary's improves to 9-4.

Donnie Perez's three-run home run to left in the fifth erased a 2-1 UHV lead and helped carry the Rattlers to victory. St. Mary's would add four more runs in the ninth to seal the win.

The Rattlers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third, but the Jaguars answered right back in the bottom of the inning.

After Nathan Letien (FR/Conroe, TX) reached on an error to open the inning, Letien raced home on Chase Tamez (JR/Cypress, TX)'s double to deep left-center to tie the game. Tamez would then score on an RBI single from Joshua Fonseca (JR/Pasadena, TX) to give the Jaguars their only lead.

The Jaguars would add another run in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Nolan Maciejeski (FR/Tomball, TX) that scored courtesy runner Jonathan Banuelos (SR/Arlington).

Fonseca and Garrett Harrison (JR/Victoria, TX) each had two hits to lead the Jaguars, who finished with nine hits.

James Rollins tied for first and four University of Houston-Victoria golfers finished in the top 10 Tuesday to lead the Jaguars to the team title at the South Padre Intercollegiate.

The Jaguars posted a final round 310 to easily capture the team title with a 36-hole score of 597, while Oklahoma Wesleyan placed second at 623 and Central Christian took third with a 645.

Rollins posted rounds of 70-77 to finish at 5-over par 147 at the 6,758-yard, par-72 South Padre Island Golf Club. He finished tied for first with Texas A&M-International’s Justin Kim (71-76-147). Kim went on to defeat Rollins in a two-hole playoff for top individual honors.

Cristian Esparza, the first round leader, finished tied for fifth with teammate Juan David Coy. Esparza posted rounds of 69-82-151, while Coy finished at 73-78-151. Adrian Saenz also finished in the top 10 with a 75-77-152 for eighth.

UHV’s fifth man, Preston Woodard, posted rounds of 81-78-159.

Terry Strickland, playing as an individual medalist for the Jaguars, finished third just a shot back of the leaders as he posted rounds of 72-76-148.

The Jaguars will be back in action March 12-13 at the LeTourneau Yellow Jacket Spring Invitational.
