Baseball Drops Series to Puget Sound With 8-1 Loss
PORTLAND, Ore. - The Lewis & Clark baseball team dropped its three game series against the Puget Sound Loggers on Sunday in the final game. The Pioneers, who won the opening game, fell 8-1 in Northwest Conference action.
As they did in the opening two games of the series, the Pioneers scored the first run of the contest, with Matthew Cathcart brining in Andrew Traver in the second inning. Traver led off the second with a double to left field, before moving to third on a sacrifice by Corey Davis. The sophomore catcher came in to score with a Cathcart single through the left side.
The Loggers took the lead in the top of the third, plating three runs on just two hits. After a walk to the lead off batter, a double to left center by Connor Savage put two runners in scoring position. With the very next at bat the Loggers managed to plate two runs on a single and several throws around the field. The final run of the inning scored moments later on a sacrific fly to center.
Puget Sound tallied five runs between the fifth and sixth innings to end the scoring.
