GAME NOTES/HIGHLIGHTS

  • Brian Fuentes controlled a two out pitch to the shortstop followed by Gary Lora’s single down the right field line; Sam Faith hit an RBI single
  • After a walk was issued to Isaac Nunez which loaded the bases, LCSC pitcher Eric Chavarria escaped the inning with a fly out to center field
  • Copying what SEU did in the top half of the inning, the Warriors juiced the bags by way of a hit, walk, and fielding error
  • Three straight outs from Bryce Moyle ended the inning and kept the Fire leading 1-0
  • Next time to the plate, Jose Marcano started things off with a double down the left field line, advanced to third on a wild pitch, and then score on Abdel Guadalupe’s single up the middle
  • After originally being awarded a double down the left field line, the umpires ruled it a foul ball; fortunately for the Fire, he came back to the plate and hit a homer instead
  • Lewis-Clark State pulled their starter in the top of third with two outs and the move was golden as the new pitcher, Drake Borschowa, recorded a line out on his first pitch, stranding two runners 
  • After getting out of the inning with only one run added, Riley Way put the Warriors on his back and fired off a solo bomb to right field in the bottom of the third
  • SEU had two runners in scoring position in the fourth but was unable to advance them any further
  • Moyle started off by awarding two free bases which enabled LC to move them both over on a sacrifice bunt by A.J. Davis before scoring Coy Stout on a RBI groundout and Nick Seamons sliding home on a wild pitch to tie the game at 3-3
  • The lead didn’t last long as Stephen Cullen launched a two-run bomb 365 feet over the center field batter’s eye for a 5-3 score
  • Consecutive singles by Luke White and Sam Linscott, followed by Justin Mazzone being hit by the pitch loaded the bases; Moyle was not phased and coolly struck out the next batter before ending the inning on a groundout to short
  • During the sixth, Nunez launched a three run shot to center field which brought the Fire lead to 8-3; while the top of the seventh saw another SEU tally be added on Broyles sacrifice fly
  • Moyle’s night came to an end once he allowed a double and then two walks, all with no outs recorded in the frame
  • Reliever Stull faced only one batter, in which he walked a run in to bring it to a 9-4 count
  • The third pitcher used in the inning was Ronnie Voacolo who shut down the Warrior offense with three straight force outs
  • Lucas Gregory took over control of the mound in the top of the eighth and rewarded head coach Jake Taylor’s trust with a clean inning
  • In the Warriors last gasp, White and Way stood on the corners but Mazzone ended the inning with a center field fly out
