PHOENIX, Ariz--Early leads for the Arizona Western Matadors (20-8 overall, 12-6 ACCAC) turned into a split of decisions against the South Mountain Cougars (22-9 overall, 16-8 ACCAC) Tuesday afternoon.
Dylan Edmands first inning RBI gave Matador starter Elvis Parra plenty of room to work with, as the Matadors would open up to 6-2, before South Mountain rallied in the seventh.
Ultimately, AWC closed out the 6-5 win in game one.
The Matadors again took an early lead in game two, but sparked by a two run homer, the Cougars struck for a five-run fourth inning to turn the tables.
South Mountain held on to the 8-3 decision to force the split.
Arizona Western will return to Yuma on Thursday for a double-header make-up against Mesa at Kammann Field beginning at noon. Both games will be streamed on the Matador Athletics Facebook Page.
