DALLAS - Andrew Mills' home run in the top of the seventh inning propelled Bossier Parish Community College to a 9-7 win and doubleheader sweep of Brookhaven College here Monday. With the game tied at seven, Mills hit his second home run of the game, this one on a 2-0 count, which scored two runs and put the Cavaliers ahead for good 9-7.
Mills, a freshman from nearby Plano, Texas, went 3-for-4 at the plate with four RBIs. Mills hit his third and fourth home runs of the season in the game. It's the first time this season a Cavalier has hit multiple home runs in a game.
Hunter Shaw was the pitcher of record when the Cavaliers took the lead, so he earned the victory after allowing a couple of hits and an unearned run in the bottomo of the sixth. Zane Morehouse earned the save after pitching a scoreless seven. Morehouse did not allow a hit and struck out one to close out the game.
The Cavaliers won game one over the Bears 9-3, and with the doubleheader sweep of Brookhaven, BPCC now owns a 31-16 overall record. The 31 wins are the most wins for a Bossier Parish baseball team in well over a decade. It is believed the last Cavaliers team to reach 30 or more wins was the 2001 Cavaliers, who finished the season with an incredible 46-15 record under then coach Jay Artigues, who is now the athletics director at Southeastern Louisiana University.
