Another complete game by Biggerstaff helps Bears to 3-1 win

Bryce Biggerstaff, a rock on the mound during the last month for the University of Central Arkansas, was solid again Wednesday night in propelling the Bears to the second round of the Southland Conference baseball tournament.

Biggerstaff threw a complete-game, six-hitter as the sixth-seeded Bears (30-21) defeated third-seeded Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (30-26), 3-1, at Bear Stadium.
UCA now plays seventh-seeded McNeese State, a 4-2 victor over second-seeded Nicholls State, in a winners bracket game at 7 p.m. Thursday. The Islanders play Nicholls State in an elimination game at noon.

“He (Biggerstaff) is a hard-nosed guy who has been outstanding each and every time he has gone out there down the stretch,” said UCA coach Allen Gum. “He's a senior. He just gets the ball and goes and pitch counts don’t matter.”

Doug Votolato, another senior provided the offensive spark, going four for five with two RBI plus making an outstanding catch in center that prevented extra bass in the seventh. Justin Treece, annother senior, was two for four with a run scored. Sophommore Tyler Langley of Conway was 2 for 3 with an RBI.
