Blinn tops Palominos 6-2 and 7-0 in Saturday doubleheader
The Blinn baseball team completed a four-game sweep over the Laredo Palominos Saturday at Leroy Dreyer Field.
Brenner struck out 13 and walked one through seven innings. His outing comes a day after sophomore Robbie Dickey held Laredo to two hits in six innings and struck out 11 in Game 2 Friday, a 19-0 Buccaneer win.
Blinn won Game 1 Friday 5-3.
It’s the Bucs first Region XIV Conference series sweep of the season.
Nolan Brown, Caden Williams and Cullen Gassaway each had two hits in the Game 2 victory. Blinn took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first off a two-run home run by Williams, and Gassaway made it 3-0 with a solo shot in the third.
The Bucs completed the sweep after responding from a 2-1 Laredo deficit in the fifth inning of Game 1.
Blinn took its first lead of the game in the bottom of the fifth off a run by freshman Cullen Jozwiak, a Brenham High School product. A double by Gassaway and a single by Robinson in the bottom of the sixth extended Blinn’s lead to 6-2.
Sophomore Shane McCarley picked up the win on the mound after tossing seven innings. He allowed two runs—one earned—on seven hits and struck out two.
