Lamar sports informationNACOGDOCHES —The long ball was working for the Lamar Cardinals on Friday.They stepped up to the plate and scored 14 runs on eight combined home runs, sweeping a doubleheader 10-9, 13-6 at Stephen F. Austin in the final regular season series of the 2016 campaign, this one at Jaycees Field in Southland Conference action.Eleven of the 13 runs scored in the nightcap of the twin bill were scored on six dingers, which ranks fourth all-time in LU (34-17, 19-10 Southland Conference) history for homers in a game, and is the most since it trounced Columbia with seven in 2009. Both Robin Adames and Brendan Satran hit two, and Cutter McDowell, Jacoby Middleton, Reid Russell and Trey Silvers all added another.For Russell, it was his 17th homer of the season, which puts him in sole possession of second place at Lamar for homers in a season, one shy of tying Michael Ambort’s record of 18. The total also upped the team’s mark to 55, the most since the Cardinals hit 64 in both 1998 and 1999. The mark is two shy of matching the fifth most in school history in a season at 57 (1978).Satran kicked off the scoring machine in the second inning of the second game with a solo shot that led off the frame, and was followed later in the inning by McDowell’s two-run blast that scored Jake Nash. Between the two homers, Nash doubled home Stijn van der Meer, who reached on a single. The inning put Lamar up 5-0 since Nash scored an unearned run in the first; Bryndan Arredondo drove him in on a single up the middle.Stephen F. Austin (27-27, 14-15) worked its way back to tie it at 5-5 in the fourth inning, but in the very next frame Middleton plastered a three-run shot to put LU up 8-5, and the Cards never lost the lead again — due in large part to Jayson McKinley’s (3-2) second-straight good outing.Silvers reached on a one-out double to left center, and Chaneng Varela put men on first and third with a single through the left side. Middleton drove a 1-0 count pitch over the opposite field (right) wall for his ninth long ball of the year.In the eight, up 8-6, Russell popped his long ball that also scored van der Meer, reached on a single, and Silvers went deep in the next at-bat for back-to-back jacks. In the ninth, Satran added extra insurance when he hit one to left center that scored Adames, who reached on a leadoff single.McKinley worked 5 2/3 innings and just allowed one run on four hits and two walks. He took over for Will Hibbs, who was pulled after 3 2/3 inning and allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and two walks, after he struggled in the fourth.Austin Smith (0-1) was tagged with the loss on 3 1/3 frames of work with three scores given up on five hits. Just like the first game, the Lumberjacks used six pitchers in the contest.Freshman Adames spurred on the Cardinals in the opening game. He stood at the plate in four at-bats, and each one proved more pivotal than the one before. He finished 4-of-4 with four RBI, two home runs, and two runs scored. It could have been three, but he was pinch run for in the eighth inning.In the second inning, his first at-bat, he stepped up with Arredondo at first and sent him across with a scorched double left field that tied the game 1-1 early. Stephen F. Austin hung a four-spot in the third inning to jump up 5-1, but Adames cut it to 5-3 when he popped a two-run home run to left, his fourth of the season, that scored Middleton in the fourth.That home run left the Cardinals in striking distance for Arredondo’s bases-loaded double in the fifth that gave Big Red its first advantage of the game at 6-5. Nash singled, McDowell doubled and Silvers drew a walk to load the bases for Arredondo, who ripped a 1-0 count pitch to right center.In the fifth, Adames stepped to the plate and picked on the first pitch he saw and blasted a leadoff homer over the left field wall, which gave LU a 7-5 lead. Satran followed up the long ball with a single to central, and later scored on McDowell’s second double in as many innings to make it 8-5, LU.Adames’ second homer of the game made him the fourth Cardinal to have two long balls in a contest this season, joining Jacoby Middleton, Russell and Silvers. His fourth hit in the eighth inning was the sixth time that a Cardinal had four hits in a single contest. Satran later became the seventh to do it with a 4-of-5 day in the second game.The Lumberjacks battled back with their second four-run inning in the sixth, with a lot of help from walks issued from LU pitching. Tyler Kendrick led off the inning with a walk, and two batters later Kyle Thornell did the same thing. Garrett McMullen singled home Kendrick before another walk Connor Fikes loaded the bases.A sacrifice fly from Zach Michener scored Thornell and pushed Fikes to third base, who stole home to tie it at 8-8. Clark Kahawaii gave the ‘Jacks the 9-8 advantage.Neither team scored in the seventh inning, but Adames led off the eighth with a first-pitch single to center field. He was pinch ran for by Gavin Tristan, who worked his way around the bags and scored the tying run on a single through the right side. Stijn van der Meer, who doubled earlier in the frame, scored the go-ahead run from third on fielder’s choice from McDowell.Travis Moore (4-2) won the fourth game of his season on 2 2/3 scoreless innings of work. Fernando Martinez (3) earned the save with an inning with just one hit allowed. Jimmy Johnson started the contest against a very stout SFA lineup and worked 3 2/3 frames. He surrendered five runs on nine hits and two walks. Brett Brown relieved him and pitched well until the walks that aided in the four-run inning.SFA used six pitchers in the first game, and Tyler Starks (3-2) suffered the loss when he gave up the go-ahead run on two hits. Patrick Ledet started the contest and worked 4 2/3 innings and gave up six runs on six hits and four walks.Nash now has 40-plus runs scored and runs driven in, making him the first 40-40 Cardinal since Darian Johnson and Sam Bumpers did it in 2013. They are three of only four Big Red players to do in since 2010. Russell is one RBI short of being the first 60-RBI player at Lamar since Ambort’s 63 in 2007.Lamar will go for a sweep today when the two teams lace up for a 1 p.m. first pitch at Jaycees Field. It is the regular season finale. The wins on Friday secured at least the fourth seed heading into the Southland Conference Tournament, and there is still a chance for the third seed. Next Up

Related Strange Fruit(NEW YORK) — A little over two years after former police officer Darren Wilson was cleared of all civil rights violations following an investigation by the Department of Justice for the shooting of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, new footage released of the moments leading up to Brown’s fatal encounter with Wilson has thrown the narrative into a state of flux for some, calling into question law enforcement’s argument that Brown robbed the convenience store prior to the shooting.New revelationsJason Pollock, one of the filmmakers behind Stranger Fruit, told The New York Times he believes the footage shows Brown trading a small amount of marijuana for a bag of cigarillos, or small cigars, at around 1 a.m. on Aug. 9, 2014.The video, however, lacks clarity; we don’t see exactly what the filmmaker claims was exchanged in the video, but it clearly shows Brown then leaving behind the cigarillos.Pollock told ABC News this morning that the video is proof that Brown did not rob the store, and that Brown had left the small cigars behind to be retrieved at a later time.A previously released video shows Brown hours later at the store, his hands around a shopkeeper’s neck as he makes off with a carton of cigarillos.“They wanted us to think Michael robbed the store because they needed us to think that Michael was aggressive. Michael was handed the bag in the video, the clerk puts it in a plastic bag and hands it over the counter to Michael Brown,” Pollock said. “That’s not stealing [from] the store.”It is unclear how Pollock obtained the surveillance footage.Andy Patel, a co-owner of the store, reaffirmed his version of events on Sunday by telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Brown “grabbed the cigarillos and stole them.” His lawyers dispute the narrative being told by the makers of Stranger Fruit.Patel is the man who was grabbed and shoved by Brown in the previously released portion of the video recording that took place minutes before Brown’s fatal encounter with Wilson, who was not indicted.St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch Monday called the footage “edited” but acknowledged that it was authentic.“Contained in that was a very poorly edited snippet of a security video taken from the store in Ferguson, shortly before, about 11 hours before Michael Brown returned to the store and shortly before he was shot. That has generated some inquiries and questions from the public and the media regarding the content, the source, the origin of that particular video,” McCulloch said. “The video is indeed security footage from the market that night.”McCulloch noted that the video had been in police possession for a long time, and was not kept secret.“We have copies of the entire video. And I think that’s very important. No. 1, it’s documented in the report, so it’s not as though this was hidden away somewhere, as this fellow with his video project was trying to say, actually did say. It’s documented in the police report. If you look even at his pathetic video, it shows the police report where he got the information,” McCulloch said.The video in its complete form show clerk putting the cigarillos back on the rack after taking them out of the bag. The video was deemed “neither relevant nor material” to the incident and not presented to the jury, which is why it was not made public.St. Louis County police spokesman Sgt. Shawn McGuire said the department’s investigation is focused on the interaction between Brown and Wilson and not what happened in the store.News of the video existence reopened old wounds among protesters who believe the shooting to be a violation of Brown’s civil rights, and sparked new protests in the St. Louis’ County-based city of Ferguson.Similar conclusions“People will come up with whatever narrative they want to come up with,” David Klinger, professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and a former officer of the LAPD, told ABC News. “Whether or not Brown was a drug dealer is absolutely irrelevant to [the shooting incident].”ABC News contributor and former FBI agent, Steve Gomez, agreed with Klinger’s point of view.“The video may call into question whether or not Brown paid for the cigarillos,” Gomez said. “But it doesn’t really have an impact on his interaction with Darren Wilson.”But Jay Kanzler, the lawyer for the market, called the filmmakers’ project “shameful.” “He never talk to anyone in the market – or talked to me,” Kanzler said. “He took 20 seconds and added a wild story to it.”“He owes an apology to the police officers who put their lives on the line.”For Klinger, who believes that the evidence submitted by the Department of Justice clearing Wilson was sufficient, that portion of the video now made public holds little importance.“It’s beyond me that people would think it changes anything important about the case,” Klinger said. “It’s in the realm of what people are calling ‘fake news.’”A federal wrongful-death suit filed by Brown’s parents against Wilson, the city of Ferguson and the city’s former police chief, Thomas Jackson is pending.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
