THE BASEBALL POSTSEASON IS CONTINUING ON A POSITIVE NOTE FOR THE SHSU BEARKATS, AS THEY BEAT McNEESE STATE 8-3 IN THE OPENING GAME OF THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AT CONSTELLATION FIELD IN SUGARLAND. SENIOR KEVIN MILLER HAD A STELLAR GAME, HITTING HIS FOURTH CAREER HOME-RUN IN THE 8TH FRAME EXTENDING THE BEARKATS LEAD TO 7-3; THE KATS THEN TACKED ON ONE MORE INT HE 8TH ON A BASES LOADED WALK TO MAKE THE FINAL 8-3. NOW, WITH THIS WIN, THE BEARKATS WILL FACE SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA TONIGHT AT 7PM.

LOOKING AT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL – THE HOUSTON ASTROS DON’T just APPEAR TO BE PLAYING BETTER BASEBALL – THEY ARE, ESPECIALLY AFTER A 3-1 VICTORY AGAINST KANSAS CITY WEDNESDAY AT HOME, GIVING HOUSTON THE SERIES WIN AND A 4-3 RECORD IN THEIR LAST SEVEN GAMES. NEXT UP FOR HOUSTON IS ANOTHER HOME STAND THIS WEEKEND AS THEY HOST OAKLAND.

IT WAS ANOTHER WIN LAST NIGHT FOR A-L WEST LEADING TEXAS, AS THE RANGERS BEAT OAKLAND 3-1. THE RANGERS ARE LEADING THEIR DIVISION BY 5 ½ GAMES. NEXT UP FOR TEXAS IS A WEEKEND SERIES ON THE WEST COAST AS THEY TRAVEL TO SEATTLE TO FACE THE MARINERS.
