BELLEVUE, Wash. (Apr. 30) Seattle University baseball picked up its second series win of the season on Sunday after defeating UNLV, 1-0.
Connor Moore, making his fourth start, had his best outing of the season. He threw seven scoreless innings, striking out six batters, walking four and gave up just five hits. Moore also fielded his position well, taking part in two double plays.
“It's his best performance in four years and the timing is perfect,” Head Coach Donny Harrel said. “We need to stay hot going into the last part of conference play. He wasn't overthrowing and made some good adjustments.”
The only run of the game was scored in the bottom of the seventh inning, when Curtis Perrin hit a ball over the right-field fence for a solo home run. Perrin had a productive day at the plate, going 3-3.
The Redhawks (15-26-1) had plenty of opportunities early in the game, but baserunning errors limited their ability to put runs on the scoreboard.
“We need to be smarter,” Harrel said. “We weren't doing what we were taught on the basepaths. We are aggressive but we need to let the game come to us sometimes.”
Rebels' (17-30) starter Garrett Poole brought his A-game as well, pitching eight innings, and giving up just one run, the Perrin blast.
The Redhawks return to Western Athletic Conference play on Friday, May 5 when they travel to play Grand Canyon University in a three-game series.
