It wasn't pretty, but it was a win.

No. 13 Angelo State had 15 hits but committed five errors in a 13-9 victory against St. Mary's Friday at Foster Field.

With the win, the Rams improved to 24-10 overall. St. Mary's fell to 21-11.

"We won," ASU head coach Kevin Brooks said. "That's about all I have to say that is good. We won and we had a couple of guys play well. Luckily those guys played well enough for us to win.
And our bullpen did well."

Alexandria Williams wasn't around when Adrian Williams couldn't buy a base hit at Riverside Stadium.

"A lot of people probably remember me as someone who didn't hit that well in high school," said Adrian, who graduated from Memorial two years ago and is now a designated hitter for Texas A&M-Kingsville. "I was more of a pitcher, but I've become a much smarter hitter through hard work."

Adrian's daughter, Alexandria, was born on July 29, 2008. She has inspired her father work to get a business marketing degree and become a more complete person.

"It's a lot of fun being a father," said Williams, whose daughter lives in Victoria. "I feel really dedicated to getting a good education so I can help her. I think I'm making better grades because of her. I'm probably a better baseball player because of her. The only down part to being in college is that I don't get to see her nearly as much as I would like to."

Lone Star Conference softball teams are taking a break from beating up teams in their own division. The North and South divisions get a chance to determine conference supremacy when the two meet today in the LSC Crossover Tournament in Durant, Okla.

"There is a lot of rivalry when we come to this weekend," West Texas A&M coach Kevin Blaskowski said. "It is a right-of-supremacy weekend. It is a month away from the conference tournament. The teams that come in here and do well can ride a wave of momentum into the rest of the season leading up to the conference tournament."
