IRVINE, Calif. – In their longest game of the year to date, the Hawks were on the shorter end of the stick in the 2-1 loss to No. 18 Eagles of Concordia Friday in the series opener.
The Eagles scored in the bottom of the twelfth with a bases loaded single through the left side.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 9-34 overall and 8-26 in conference play. Concordia improves to 34-11 on the season and 24-10 in the GSAC.
Starter, Gio Ochoa (JR/Indio, CA), went nine innings allowing just one run and five hits while striking out seven. Ochoa threw 8-shutout innings before giving up a run in the bottom of the ninth.
The Hawks scored the first run in the marathon. Brooks Fages (SO/Temecula, CA) hit a solo shot in the seventh to give SDC the 1-0 lead. But with runs in the ninth and twelfth, spoiled the Hawks' upset bid.
SDC finished with six hits for the one run. Concordia tallied eight hits.
These two teams will square off tomorrow in a double-header to complete the season series. First pitch is scheduled for a noon start.
