SAN DIEGO – No. 18 Concordia scored eight runs in the first three innings to defeat the San Diego Christian Baseball team Friday 8-2.
The Hawks scored two runs in the first inning and took a 2-1 lead heading into the second inning but the Eagles retook the lead 5-2 in the second and didn't look back.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 3-15 on the season and 2-11 in conference play. Concordia improves to 15-3 overall and 11-2 in the GSAC.
After escaping the top of the first with only one run allowed in which the Hawks got out of a bases loaded jam, Brooks Fages (SO/Temecula, CA) hit a double to left field to bring home Justin DiStefano and Joseph Tellez (SR/Bronx, NY) for the 2-1 lead.
The Eagles would retake the lead with runs of a solo homer and a bases clearing 3 RBI double. Concordia would then score three runs in the top of the third to end all scoring in the game.
SDC starter Tyler Wilson (SR/Gilbert, AZ) lasted just two innings giving up four hits, five runs, four earned, with one strikeout. Gio Ochoa (JR/Indio, CA) worked six innings of long relief striking out seven and giving up three runs and four hits. Julian Kelly (JR/Dublin, CA) finished the ninth with a clean inning, only surrendering two walks with two strikeouts.
Six different Hawks had a hit, with Fages double producing the only RBIs. Fages went 1-for-2 with a walk.
The Hawks will face off against these same Eagles in a double-header tomorrow with the first pitch slated for 11 a.m.
