Oscar Almeida struck out the last two batters, stranding Adams State’s potential tying run on second base, and the Highlands Cowboys edged Adams State 7-6 on Sunday in their series finale at Brandt Park.
The win for pitcher Chris Prokupek (and save for Almeida) completed a four-game sweep.
The Cowboys (7-5 overall, 4-0 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) are on a five-game win streak after having lost four of their first five games. And head coach Steve Jones is just four wins shy of the 500-victory career milestone.
