VANCOUVER, Canada - Needing at least a split in today’s doubleheader to keep their postseason hopes alive, Oregon Tech fell 5-0 in game 1, but would recover for a 6-4 win in the series finale versus University of British Columbia Sunday at Thunderbird Park.
Oregon Tech is now 10-18 in NAIA West action and will host Concordia University in the final regular-season series in Klamath Falls this weekend.
In the opening game the Owls managed just five hits, none for extra bases, as Tyson Dahl finished 2-for-2 at the plate to lead the Tech offense. Alex Reynolds, Kory Locken and Zack Earle each recorded hits in the loss.
Oregon Tech would lead 6-1 in game 2 and hold on for a 6-4 win to close out the series.
Alex Reynolds, Ryan Hayden and Ryan Grant finished with a pair of hits each with Hayden and Reynolds adding a RBI in the win for Tech. Dylan Rogers and Dahl recorded doubles, while Earle drove in two runs in the game. Earle also earned the win for the Owls going seven complete, while Neil Emerson shut down UBC over the final two innings to earn the save. Earle scattered nine hits and allowed four earned runs while striking out two. Emerson pitched hitless baseball in his relief appearance, striking out one and walking two.
