It was a good three-day, five-game series for Carl Albert State College baseball.
First off, the Vikings took four of five games from the Southwestern (Iowa) College Spartans at Ival Goodman Field.
The Vikings swept the Spartans by scores of 7-3 and 2-1 on Saturday, and ended the series with a 6-4 win in a nine-inning contest Monday afternoon.
The two teams split a pair of 10-0 run-rule games Sunday afternoon, with Carl Albert taking the opener.
But the highlight of the series happened after Saturday's opener, in which Carl Albert rallied with six runs in the sixth inning to get the come-from-behind win.
That victory gave CASC Coach Mark Pollard, now in his 32nd year of coaching, his 900th career coaching win.
That game-winning rally in the sixth inning happened after two outs. With the bases loaded, Jacob Carter hit a two-RBI single, followed by an RBI single by Brandon Cummings, a wild pitch and a two-run home run by Red Oak freshman Brooks Deatherage, his first homer of the season.
