Strong pitching and a solo homerun from Kevin Miller propelled Sam Houston State to a 2-1 win over Texas-San Antonio Tuesday on the road. The Bearkats (28-17, 12-6) have now won six straight games.

Designated hitter Hayden Simerly got the scoring started in the first inning after first baseman Jessie Plumlee was hit by a pitch to lead off the game. Third baseman Kevin Miller singled to advance Plumlee to third base before Simerly singled to drive him in.

The Bearkats took a 2-0 lead when Miller led off the sixth inning with a solo homer to left-center field. The long ball is the first of the season for the senior third baseman and just the third of his career.

Starter Cody Dickson pitched five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits and two walks. Dickson has not allowed a run in his last nine innings pitched. He pitched in relief Saturday and started tonight.

Logan Boyd pitched three innings of relief and allowed just one run on two hits. The freshman allowed a solo homerun to the Roadrunner DH Tony Ramirez.

Jason Simms pitched a scoreless ninth inning and registered his seventh save of the season.

The Kats finished off a sweep of the Division I, UT-System schools after a win over the Texas Longhorns and Texas-Arlington Mavericks earlier this season.

Sam Houston will host Nicholls State for a three-game weekend series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Don Sanders Stadium.
