No, it wasn't a malfunctioning scoreboard. Just another typical RMAC baseball game - gone completely nuclear.
CSU-Pueblo and Colorado Christian broke a ThunderWolf school record for most combined runs in a game as CSU-Pueblo earned a ridiculous 32-23 win over the Cougars Saturday before completing the sweep with a 9-3 win in the nightcap.
The Pack went long ball a school record 11 times as Jason Fobes (Sr., Longmont, Colo.) and Matt Wismann (Sr., Palo Alto, Calif.) equalled school records by going yard three times. The duo registered 5 RBI and 7 RBI, respectively. The Pack's 11 homers were one away from an NCAA Division II record.
Eric Bloom (Jr., Reseda, Calif.), who hit two home runs for eight RBI on Friday, knocked out two more to put up 6 RBI.
Combined, both schools hit 18 home runs, shattering the NCAA Division II record of 14 (set by St. Mary's (TX) and Incarnate Word in 2001). The record of 18 is the highest combined total in NCAA history regardless of classification.
Both teams also combined for 118 total bases (14 singles, 13 doubles, two triples and 18 home runs), also shattering NCAA records in all classifications.
Other records approached included the total of 23 runs by Colorado Christian (three away from record for most runs scored by losing team), the combined 47 hits by both teams (five away from record of 52), the combined 51 RBI by both teams (two away from record).
Game two was decidedly tame, as the ThunderWolves won 9-3, running their win streak to seven and improving to 30-13 overall and 19-9 in RMAC play.
CSU-Pueblo will try to continue its winning ways as well as return to normalcy when it travels to Regis to take on the Rangers in a four-game set.
