The Redhawks started off their week at home against the University of Portland on Tuesday. The teams started the day by completing a game that had initially started in Portland last week, but were halted due to weather.
In its entirety, the game took over four hours to complete.
The Redhawks put up a good fight, starting the day with a 13-12 lead. However, they were unable to hold on and lost the game 14-16. After completing the halted match, the Redhawks pressed on against the Pilots for a second game.
The Redhawks took a strong lead with 3-0 in the bottom of the second inning and First-year pitcher Desmond Parisotto was able to toss five complete scoreless innings.
Unfortunately, the relief pitchers were unable to hold the lead as the Pilots came back with four runs of their own to secure a 4-3 lead.
The Redhawks briefly tied things up, but the Pilots’ offense could not be stopped and handed Seattle U an 8-4 loss.
The Redhawks destroyed California Baptist on Thursday with an 11-1 victory and set a season high of 17 hits.
Sophomore pitcher Jarrod Billig allowed the Lancers only three hits and a single run in 6.2 innings while Freshman pitcher Max Cuenca allowed only one hit in the remaining 1.1 innings.
Sophomore Connor O’Brien and Junior Chase Wells were each able to collect three hits.
The Redhawks faced California Baptist once again Sunday.
The match was a back and forth struggle for both teams, though ultimately the win went to the Lancers with a score of 10-12. Following these games, Seattle University Head Coach Donny Harrell took to Twitter to show his pride for his team.
Redhawk Nation:This may be the craziest tweet this year in college baseball for a team that is 6-22. WE ARE GOOD! 8 losses by 1 run, 6 by 2-runs, 3 by 3 runs with extra inning losses. Our guys play EVERY game like it is a championship. Keep supporting them. We do and I LOVE it!!
