New Mexico Highlands split the first half of a series in baseball and softball over the weekend in Nebraska. Friday at Nebraska-Kearney, Jason Carr smashed two home runs to help the 12th-ranked Cowboys (19-6, 9-3) break the host Lopers’ eight-game win streak 9-6. But a Cowboy error with two outs in the bottom of the seventh helped UNK get revenge in a 6-5 decision. Carr hit a total of three homers Friday, going 5 for 8 and driving in five runs. Saturday at Chadron State, the Cowgirls (10-13, 6-8) won 11-4 and lost 8-5. Both series were slated to resume Sunday.
