Central Arkansas Defeats Grambling St., 30-0
The Central Arkansas Bears defeated the Grambling Tigers, 30-0...yes, 30-0..in non-conference action on Tuesday night in Conway, Arkansas.
This is one of those rare games that just really got ugly, with Central Arkansas, who plays in the Southland Conference, doing everything right, and Grambling St., who plays in the SWAC, doing nothing right.
Central Arkansas scored sevens runs in the bottom of the first inning, and continued to plate runners in every inning, with two in the second, two in the third, four in the fourth, six in the fifth, two in the sixth, six in the seventh, and one in the eight.
The Bears, who banged out 27 hits, were led by catcher Michael Marietta, who went 7-for-7, with three doubles, three homers, and 11 RBI's.
What's kind of amazing is that game was played in less than three hours, despite 30 runs being scored, along with 12 walks, and four hit batters by the Grambling St. pitching staff.
The Tigers were just brutal in every aspect, committing six errors, defensively.
With the win, Central Arkansas improved to 24-8, while Grambling St. dropped to 13-18.
