Northwestern State ace Nathan Jones, who had struck out four of five batters from the last batter of the first to the first batter of the third, was nearly pegged for a second run on a Josh Ragan double that would’ve been a round-tripper if it landed a few inches higher. A trio of walks issued allowed Ragan to touch home plate and double the Bears’ lead.BSB: @UCABearBaseball on the board first in our second game. 30th RBI of the year for Smith, scoring Anderson. 1-0 Bears over @NSUDemonsBSB, B1st.?? @espn apps #ProveIt #BearClawsUp #SouthlandStrong— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) May 22, 2019 Davenport needed just 18 pitches to manufacture six-straight outs before allowing a double to Kunert, just Davenport’s fifth hit allowed on the afternoon.
