UHV vs. Texas A&M-Texarkana baseball

UHV’s Hayden Leopold reacts in frustration at the end of an inning during a Red River Athletic Conference game against Texas A&M-Texarkana at Riverside Stadium.

STERLINGTON, La. — Louisiana Christian scored seven runs in the top of the first inning and went on to a 17-7 Red River Athletic Conference tournament win over UHV on Saturday night at the Sterlington Sports Complex.

The game was stopped after seven innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

The Jaguars (21-25) dropped their first game of the tournament and will play Our Lady of the Lake in an elimination game at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Peyton Lamartiniere hit a grand slam to highlight the first-inning onslaught for the Wildcats (32-15).

Nick Brunet added a three-run home run in the second inning to push Louisiana Christian's lead to 10-0.

UHV pulled within 11-5 in the fifth inning, but got no closer.

Amilcar Montanez had three hits, Raul Lopez, who doubled twice, and Darvis Watson each had two hits, and Hallettsville Sacred Heart graduate Kaden Fikac had a double and four RBIs to lead the Jaguars at the plate.
