Playing at home and playing on the road appeared to make a big difference in last weekend’s series between Panola College and Centenary College.
The Fillies took an 11-2 win Friday at home, before dropping a 13-1 decision to the Gents on Monday night in Shreveport.
Panola will head into this weekend’s series with Coastal Bend College with 1-1 mark. The schedule calls for a doubleheader beginning at noon Friday and a single game Saturday at noon.
On Friday, the Gents scored first with an earned run in the top of the third.
The Ponies got their bats going in the fifth as they scored five times to take control.
They would also add two more in the sixth, a single run in the seventh and close it out with three more in the eighth after the visitors had added a second run.
Second baseman Gage Goddard led the way offensively as he was 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles and three RBIs, while first baseman Easton Parrish was 1 for 3 with a pair of RBIs.
Austin Dean, the second of four Pony pitchers got the win as he came in and struck out five and walked two in his two innings of work.
Starter Grant Rogers also struck out five, but gave up the third-inning run.
In the second game, designated hitter Blaine Thomas had a first inning RBI-double to give the Ponies the early lead.
They would hold that lead until the third when the Gents scored two. They would score seven more in the fourth and three in the fifth.
Jeremy Abreau also had two hits for the Ponies, while Parrish, Jack Angus and Bryce Stansbury all had singles.
Starting pitcher Kobie Brown gave up a pair of unearned runs and took the loss in three innings of work.
