For the second time in three days, UT-Arlington suffered a stinging 4-3 defeat against Lamar and was eliminated today from the Southland Conference baseball tournament in Corpus Christi.
The Mavericks led 3-2 going into the ninth inning after an error, Preston McCoy's double and a two-run double by Jay Pitschka in the bottom of the eighth.
Lamar strung together four hits and a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth for the winning runs.
In the bottom of the ninth with two outs, Collin Garner singled and reached second base for the Mavericks but was left stranded.
Lamar rallied to beat UTA on the tournament's opening day Wednesday by a 4-3 score.
