SAN MARCOS, Texas — Texas State's August Ramirez hit a walk-off two-run home run to ruin a North Dakota State rally and the Bobcats won by a football score, 19-18, on Saturday at Bobcat Ballpark.
The teams combined for 35 hits and 13 pitchers combined to walk 12 and hit five batters. Only one of the 37 runs was unearned.
The teams combined for 20 extra base hits, 14 of which were home runs.
The Bison's Terrell and Peter Brookshaw both hit two home runs and Stephen Lund, Kyle Law and Jack Steil also homered. The Bobcats' Chase Mora hit four home runs and drove in nine runs.
The Bison trailed 17-13 in the top of the ninth but they scored five runs on a Druw Sackett RBI single and Law's grand slam. But in the home half, Jose Gonzalez drew a lead-off walk and Ramirez won it a batter later.
The Bison have lost 10 straight and are 1-13 overall. They tangle with the Bobcats at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 12, before heading to play two games at Texas on Tuesday and Wednesday.
