FOREST GROVE, Oregon – Both Erica Gott and Jessica Gott homered, but the Puget Sound softball team lost two Northwest Conference make-up games in Oregon Thursday afternoon. The Loggers fell to Pacific, 4-2, and lost to Lewis & Clark, 8-2. Pacific hosted both games.
Puget Sound 2, Pacific 4
The Loggers struck for two runs in the first inning, but that was the only substantial offense it could muster in a 4-2 loss against Pacific.
Jessica Gott was hit by a pitch with two outs in the first, and her sister, Erica, followed by belting her team-leading third home run to left-center field.
Erica Gott had a quality start in the circle, allowing just three earned runs through all six innings.
Puget Sound 2, Lewis & Clark 8
Once again, Puget Sound struck for a pair runs in the first inning. And once again, Puget Sound couldn't push more runs across the plate during an 8-2 loss against Lewis & Clark.
Puget Sound heads to Newberg, Oregon, for a four-game, two-day series at George Fox starting Friday, March 30, at 12 p.m.
