NEWBERG, Oregon – The three-day, four-game trip to Oregon began with a win, and it ended with a win. The Puget Sound baseball team returns to campus after beating George Fox, 9-1, Monday afternoon.
Puget Sound starting pitcher Michael Warnick hurled seven scoreless innings and struck out five to earn his first win of the season. In addition to benefiting from Warnick's brilliance, the Loggers (2-2) benefited from seven George Fox (6-2) errors.
Mason Quinlan and Ryan Moyes both hit 3-for-4 for Puget Sound. Moyes clubbed his first home run of the season in the eighth inning, clearing the fence in left-center. Quinlan wrapped up the weekend with three consecutive multi-hit games.
The Loggers put a pair of runs on the board in the first inning thanks to RBIs by Hunter Riley and Strash. Puget Sound got three more runs in the third inning, the first two came off a Jack Gries single to centerfield. Quinlan provided an RBI double later in the inning.
Quinlan tacked on another RBI hit in the fourth, and a couple of George Fox miscues directly resulted to in two Puget Sound runs.
