UT Arlington completes baseball sweep of South Alabama

UTA baseball 6, South Alabama 1

Daniel Milliman pitched six shutout innings as UT Arlington capped its first Sun Belt Conference sweep by beating South Alabama 6-1 on Sunday afternoon at Stanky Field.

Milliman, a senior right-hander from Fort Worth Southwest, gave up only one hit, a single in the second inning, and no walks.

The Mavericks (12-16, 4-5 Sun Belt) ran their winning streak to a season-high four games. USA is 13-3, 3-5.

“Daniel Milliman pitched great, the bullpen was great [and] got some timely hitting, just like we did all weekend,” UTA coach Darin Thomas told utamavs.com. UTA won a doubleheader Saturday 8-3 and 6-2 after a rainout Friday.

UTA reliever Zach Hobbs gave up a run in the eighth when a pop-up to center field was lost in the sun. Jess Amedee pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for the save.

The Mavericks broke a scoreless tie with three runs in the fifth. Travis Sibley walked leading off, took second on a wild pitch and scored on Peter Cuomo’s single. Derek Miller followed with a double to left to score Cuomo. Two wild pitches scored Miller.

Gregg McCall made it 4-0 in the seventh with a run-scoring single.

UTA added two runs in the ninth on Ryan Bottger’s single to center, scoring Sibley and Cuomo. Silbey had led off with a single and Cuomo reached on an errror.

The Mavericks host TCU at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Clay Gould Park. UTA beat the Horned Frogs 10-2 on Feb. 25 in Fort Worth.
