SPOKANE, Washington – The Puget Sound baseball team could not hold on to a 5-0 lead during its 15-8 loss at Whitworth Sunday afternoon.
Puget Sound looked to take control when it posted three runs in the third inning. Quinlan and Hunter Riley hit consecutive one-out singles, and a wild pitch allowed both runners to move up a base. Following a walk to Corey Roberts, Jake Briscoe hit an RBI single and Nolan Wiler immediately followed with a two-run hit.
Whitworth answered back with seven runs in the bottom of the third, and it added six more in the fourth.
AJ Morioka hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth inning – his first of the season.
The Loggers return home to host Whitman for a three-game series, April 13-14.
