TACOMA, Washington – The Puget Sound baseball team was stunned by Lewis & Clark, 11-6, in 10 innings on Logger Field Sunday afternoon.
Barraza put down a successful suicide squeeze that scored Kyle Strash to give the Loggers a 6-4 lead in the fifth inning. Strash scored three times in the game while drawing two walks and hitting 1-for-2.
The Pioneers (2-14, 1-7 NWC) battled back to cut the deficit to one run entering the ninth inning. Dakota Marley appeared to have locked down a save when he induced a two-out groundball with a runner on second, but a fielding error by the Loggers kept Lewis & Clark alive. The Pioneer's next batter delivered the game-tying base hit.
Lewis & Clark plated five runs in the top of the 10th inning, all of which were unearned.
The Loggers play at Pacific Lutheran Wednesday, March 7 starting at 3 p.m. The game will continue from a suspended game Feb. 20, with the score tied, 1-1, in the fifth inning.
