Momentum swung Highlands’ way, then to Eastern New Mexico, then back to the host Cowboys on Sunday as NMHU took a 10-8 win in the finale of a four-game baseball series at Brandt Park.
Highlands and first-year head coach Shannon Hunt won the series three games to one.
NMHU (4-3) hosts West Texas A&M from the Lone Star Conference for a three-game set that begins at 1 p.m. Friday.
The Buffs are 7-2, and one of the losses came against then-No. 9 Southern Arkansas.
