TACOMA, Washington – A trio of errors proved to be costly as the Puget Sound baseball team lost to Willamette, 6-0, on Logger Field Sunday afternoon.
Half of the Bearcats' (23-12, 15-6 NWC) runs were unearned, tarnishing an otherwise solid outing by Puget Sound (11-18, 7-13 NWC) starting pitcher Joe Brennan.
Brennan turned in a quality start by allowing just two earned runs through six innings. He matched his season-high in strikeouts with six.
Another Logger freshman – Hunter Riley – had a solid day. Playing second base and batting second, Riley went 2-for-4 at the plate for his second multi-hit game of the season.
Ian Hughes smashed a one-out double in fourth inning, but he was left stranded on third base. Hughes – who had a walk-off RBI single against the Bearcats on Saturday – has five hits in his last three games. Three of those hits are doubles.
Puget Sound has a quick turnaround when it hosts Linfield on Tuesday, April 11, at 3 p.m. to makeup a previously postponed game.
