2-D—LUBBOCK AVALANCHE.JOURNAL—Thursday Morning. April 3. J97S Texas Tech, ACC Split Doubleheader By WALT McALEXANDER Avalanche-JfOurnal Sports Staff Texas Tech was forced to set- He for its second doubleheader split In as many days Wednesday as the Ked Raiders' line drives (ailed to fall in the nightcap. With Jerry Lee and Lloyd Cummings combining for a two-hitter in Ihe opener, the Raiders roared to a 5-0 victory, evening their season's mark at 13-15. But in the nightcap, Abilene Christian struck for five runs in the first two frames and, with centerfielder Roy Churchill chasing down seven Texas Tech shots, managed to hold on for a 6-5 verdict. The Raiders will regroup today and plan their tactics for a three-game SWC series with SMU, beginning at 3 p.m. Friday. In the opening game Wednesday, Lee, who was ticketed to throw only 30 pitches in preparation for Friday's action, had a no-hitter through four frames and had walked just one batter. Bill Whitaker ruined the no- hit bit with a single to right with two down in the fifth and then Randy Overall singled to right leading off the seventh. Tech got the only run it needed in the first when Bryan Cowan, who had an 11-game hitting streak snapped in the second game, walked, took second on a passed ball and scored on Mike Bewley's two-out double to left. Kim Nikkei singled in Bewley in the third and Cowan scored on an error in the fourth, making it 3-0. In the sixth, Gary Sims beat out his second infield hit of the day, went to second on a passed ball and took third on a wild pitch as Ronnie Mattson walked. Mattson stole second and took third when Bewley's sacrifice fly scored Sims. And Stan Lambert's second wild pitch of the day plated Mattson, making it 5-0. In the finale. ACC, now 8-16, started quickly off Mark Le- Pori. Churchill walked and then in quick order Reid Huffman tripled to the right field corner and Alan Lakatta singled, making it 2-0. ACC came back in the second as Terry Underwood and Churchill beat out infield nubbers sandwiched around Whitaker's line shot to right and then Lak- alta's two-out double to the left field corner cleared the bases. Tech came back for two unearned runs off winner Calvin Bankes in the second as Gary Long reached on an error, Jim Horion was hit by a pitch, Nikkei singled for a run and Tom Haley's fly to center netted the second. ACC got its final—and win- ling—run in the fourth off re- iever Val Morin. Churchill reached on a two-out error by Moan Castle at second and Huffman's double to right brought the run home. The Raiders scored in the fifth as Sims tripled to left center on the first pitch of the inning and Bewley's sacrifice fly made it 6-3. In the sixth, the Raiders almost pulled it out. Nikkei singled with ace down and Castle reached on a two-out error by first-sacker Scotty Sullivan. Cowan walked to load the sacks and Sims's blooper to right cut the deficit to one. But Mattson's line-drive to left was hauled in by Wildcat shortstop Huffman and ACC reliever Paul Walker retired Tech 1-2-3 in the seventh. Horton made an outstanding catch in center and Bewley, whose relay to Mattson and then to Haley cut down an ACC run at the plate in the seventh "rame of the nightcap, also had a circus grab in right. The Raiders now stand 10-5 at home this year with six games remaining.

BTBBOOK8 1W8UCY Av^MCke-JowTMl Sport* 84*11 it wasn't hard to teU that Lubbock Christian's Randy Evans was taking dead aim on that left-centenield fence at Lowrey Field during the second game of a doubleheader with Eastern New Mexico University Wednesday '. The Chaparral teadoff man doubled home a run in the second with a shot off said fence, which hit about a foot from the top, and then he backed ENMU centerfielder Ronnie Mims to barrier to haul down his blast in the fourth. Finally in the sixth, there was no stopping Evans as he smashed a 385-foot drive over the fence, tying the score for LCC, and then for good measure he singled home the winning tally in the seventh as the Chaps swept past ENMU 3-0 and 54 in a non-conference twin bill. In the opener, Chaparral hurler Will McCauloy pitched a nifty two-hitter as he gained his first win of the season. The Chaps managed only four hits, but Evans garnered two of them, including a double, and scared a run. The twin wins lifted LCC's season record-to 16-9 and it now heads back into Texoma Conference action this weekend, hosting Dallas Baptist in a three game set. Eastern New Mexico went home as it came, without a win to. date, as the Grey•hounds' record fell to 0-7. Whereas McCauley had little trouble in the .opener, LCC starter Frank Rodriguez was not so lucky in the second game. The Chaps gained a 1-0 lead in the second, but ENMU exploded for four in the fourth, knocking Rodriguez from the mound in the process. Wayne Aiken was hit by a pitch to open the inning, and then Mims singled to center The ball got past Evans and Aiken scored, Mims going to second. Larry Hunnicut singled home a run and he later scorec on Paul Valigura double. Then Mark Vinal tripled home the final tally. That hit brought David Carter to the mound and he shut of! the ENMU attack for the re mainder of the contest, allowing only one hit the rest of the The Chaps managed to score ,wfce in their half of the fourth, iary Olivo opened with an infield single and Don Worth valked, Jerry Burleson coming n to run for him. Then after Svans and Carter flied out, Andy Bustos singled home Olivo and designated hitter John Harris plated the other with a double to right. Bustos was thrown out at the plate on the play to end the inning. Evans tied the game in the ;ixth with his booming drive off ENMU starter and loser Kyle Johnson, whose record fell to 0-3 on the year. Then in the seventh, Louis Perez opened with a walk and Olivo sacrificed him to second. ENMU reliever Ally David, who came in following the walk to Perez, fanned Worth before allowing the ground single to left by Evans. The win for Carter was his first of the year against no losses. He surrendered a single to Rick Rapp with two down in the seventh but that was it for the 'Hounds. In the f i r s t game, LCC got the only run it needed in the fourth as Rodney Gardner walked after two were out and, after a walk to Perez, Gardner scored when ENMU first baseman Vinal booted Ric Weaver's ground ball. In the fifth, the Chaps tallied twice as Evans doubled, Carter walked and Buddy Davis sin- jled home Evans. An'^effoi 1 loaded the bases and Gardner walked, forcing in the final'riin'. McCauley struck out ' seven totters and allowed two singles, those coming back-to-ba^k* 1 'by Andy Reeves and Aiken in the fourth. He walked two. 'Aiken was the losing pitcher, running/ Ms record to 0-2. ••:. The Chaps entertain Dallas Baptist in a doubleheader-Fri-' day at Lowrey Field. Then the two teams tangle in a single game Saturday.
