Strength in starters

Puget Sound's starting pitching was solid during the three-game home series against Willamette this past weekend. Joshua Zavisubin allowed just one earned run through six innings, and Joe Brennan yielded two earned runs through six innings. Merle Rowan-Kennedy allowed just one earned run through five innings, but a rain delay in the bottom of the fifth inning interrupted his rhythm and he allowed four runs to cross the plate in the sixth inning.

 

Hughes coming up huge

Ian Hughes hit a walk-off, pinch-hit single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Loggers a 3-2 win over the Bearcats on Saturday. Hughes has five hits in his last nine at-bats, including three doubles and three RBI.
