Oregon Tech Earns Split in NAIA West Doubleheader
OAKLAND, Calif. – Oregon Tech managed just two hits in a 3-1 loss in the opener, but bounced back in the nightcap with a 4-2 win, as the Owls managed a split in the opening of NAIA West baseball action versus Patten University.
The Owls are 7-11 overall and look to improve on a 1-1 record in league play, as Tech takes on Patten University Sunday in a doubleheader beginning at noon.
Aaron Jorgensen scattered six hits in eight innings, but three Owl errors and lack of offensive output doomed the starter, as he fell to 0-2 on the mound. Kevin Schulemson doubled to right in the third inning and eventually came around to score on a Patten error for Tech’s only run of the game. Zack Earle recorded Oregon Tech’s only other hit, as Patten’s Nick Duran struck out nine and moved to 2-3 with the two-hit complete game effort.
The Owls would trail 2-0 after five complete before a four run outburst in the sixth inning would prove to be all the run support Tech would need.
Hayden Wolfe doubled with bases loaded, as the Owls would tie the game 2-2 with two outs on the board. Matthew Miller and Kory Locken came up with back-to-back RBI singles and the Owls led 4-2. Starting Tech pitcher Brandon Allen threw the next three innings of scoreless baseball, while Dylan Bedortha recorded his first save of the season after pitching the ninth.
Allen went eight innings and allowed just six hits to move to 1-1 overall. Miller recorded two doubles and Wolfe a triple in the game.
