EDINBURG, Texas -- Jeff Vickers and David Moore combined to drive in four runs and Brian Sisk struck out six in five innings as Lamar defeated Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 8-3, in the season opener at the Al Ogletree Classic late Friday.
Lamar (1-0) had seven hits and scored runs in five different innings en route to an 8-0 lead which allowed Sisk (1-0) a comfortable lead to work with as he scattered two hits and three walks.
Tyler Link went 2-for-4 with a double and Chris Dunkin also had a double.
TAMU-CC (0-1) didn't score until the eighth inning when Chase Williams hit a 3-run home run.
Lamar will be back in action on Saturday afternoon when they face Sam Houston State at 1 p.m. Junior left-hander Justin Walker (0-4, 4.58 in 2007) is scheduled to start for the Cardinals. True freshman Brent Powers will start for the Bearkats (0-1), who fell to Illinois 6-4 earlier in the day.
