Bossier Parish Community College swept a Region XIV baseball doubleheader from Angelina College Thursday at home 7-2 and 12-2.

Zack St. Pierre and Cameron Duke both had solid outings on the mound allowing only two runs in each game.

The Cavalier bats were also on display rapping out 25 hits in the two games, 13 coming in the six-inning second game that ended by run rule.

Ayden Makarus had a 4-for-4 day at the plate to lead the charge and delivered the game-ending 3-run home run in the sixth inning of the second game. His other hit in game two was a run-scoring single in a 5-run BPCC first inning.

Kameron Edwards matched Makarus with a 4-for-4 day that included a home run. Edwards came off the bench in the first game and got a hit in his only at bat and then enjoyed a 3-for-3 second game with a home run and 3 RBIs.

Gavin Baird also had three hits in the second game with an RBI. He would finish the day 4-for-6 in the doubleheader. Mason Hammonds was 2-for-4 with a double and Cole Ketzner had a double in two at bats.

Duke got the win in game two allowing two runs on six hits in five innings. He struck out two and walked two.

St. Pierre got the decision in the first game going four innings, allowing two runs, one earned on three hits, as he struck out five and walked three.

Bossier Parish used a 3-run third inning to take a 4-1 lead. Ketzner drove in one run with a ground out, Connor Crowson doubled in the second run and Hammonds’ sacrifice fly brought home the third run.

The Cavaliers scored two more runs in the fifth on a Ketzner double and Crowson single to stretch their lead to 6-2.

A final insurance run was added in the sixth when Edwards doubled in Makarus.
