Senior Moyes belts three-run homer on Senior Day

PARKLAND, Washington – Senior Ryan Moyes ripped a three-run home run in the first inning of Senior Day, but the the Puget Sound baseball team lost to George Fox, 15-9, Sunday afternoon. The Loggers hosted the Bruins at Pacific Lutheran.

Before the game, Puget Sound (15-20, 9-15 NWC) honored six seniors and their loved ones: James Dejesus, Jordan Hirae, Moyes, Cal Muramaru, Merle Rowan-Kennedy, and Joshua Zavisubin.

Hirae hit a one-out single in the bottom of the first inning, and Jack Gries followed with a single of his own. Two batters, Moyes jumped all over the first pitch he saw and blasted his third home run of the season over the left field fence.

George Fox (21-16, 13-11 NWC) had a big sixth inning, plating 10 runs on seven hits in the frame. Seemingly unfazed by an 11-3 deficit, the Loggers rallied for six runs in the seventh innings.

Moyes got the rally started with a bunt single, and Jack Golbranson's single to right field put runners on the corners with nobody out. Nolan Wiler smacked an RBI single through the right side, and Jake Briscoe loaded the bases with a single through the other side. 

Dejesus' base hit allowed Golbranson to score, still with nobody out. After a pitching change, Hirae promptly delivered a two-run hit to left field. Gries' double plated Dejesus, and Jake Brady's groundout allowed Hirae to score.

Moyes finished the game 2-for-4 with three RBI and three runs. Hirae went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs. 

Puget Sound is slated to play at NCAA D-I Seattle University, Monday, April 23, at 7:15 p.m.
