The Bison went one and one this weekend in their two game series against Henderson State.

In their first game of the doubleheader, the Bison never trailed and won the game by a score of four to two.

Senior outfielder Josh Timms hit a single to bring in the first run of the game.

Later in the second inning, senior outfielder Brett Berghammer doubled to bring in two runs.

In the fourth inning, junior infielder Garrett Mckee doubled and brought in another run to make the score four to nothing. The Reddies of Henderson State attempted to come back by scoring two unanswered runs, but it was not enough.

The Bison finished with 10 hits in that game and won it four to two. Junior Pitcher Albertus Barber got his fourth win of the season, and Senior Pitcher Nick Burnham got credit for the save in that win.

In the second game of the doubleheader, The Bison could not come up with same results.

They suffered a three to four loss. OBU started out strong, opening the game with three runs in the first inning. Timms singled to center field and junior first baseman Kaden Betsch singled to left field and scored in two runs.

The Bison were up by a score of three to zero when Henderson State led a furious rally to come back and win it.

The Reddies worked from when they were down in the first inning and never looked back.

They took the lead in the fifth inning and the scoring was done from there. Senior pitcher Zach Fowler took his first loss of the season. With a 9-3 record, they are looking to rebound from this loss and continue their quest to the postseason.

The Bison will be back in action February 27th against Cameron University, and again this weekend when Southern Arkansas University comes to town for a three game series. Southern Arkansas is currently tied with OBU in the Great American Conference standings with a 10-4 (5-1) record on the season.

With a win against Cameron on Tuesday, the Bison will enter the weekend series winning three of their last four. However, the Muleriders could enter the weekend with a five game winning streak. First, they will have to get wins against East Central on Monday and Mississippi College on Tuesday.
