The ‘Prothro Persicks’ swept the baseball fall world series two games to none this past weekend, winning game one 9-3 and taking game two by a score of 1-0.

Friday evening in game one, the ‘Newman Masters’ quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead before the ‘Prothro Persicks’ responded with three runs in the second to take the lead. The squad added to the lead with two in the third and two more in the fourth.

Senior Lance Dupuis (Crowley, La./Lurleen B. Wallace) allowed three runs through 5.1 innings, fanning six and issued just one walk as the starter for Team Prothro.

Game two was a scoreless pitcher’s duel between sophomore Seth Webster (Deville, La./Buckeye) and senior Jake Parrish (Albuquerque, N.M./Northeast Oklahoma State) until junior Kevin Schlegel (Oklahoma City, Okla./Northeast Texas CC) singled in redshirt-freshman Blake Bergeron (Houma, La./Terrebonne) in the bottom of the fifth for the winning run.
