GREELEY, Colo. – Seattle University baseball overcame a two-and-a-half hour weather delay Friday afternoon at Jackson Stadium in Greeley, Colo., ultimately pulling away for a 5-2 Western Athletic Conference win over Northern Colorado to even the three-game, season ending series.
Jacob Prater led off the game with a home run over the left-center field fence, helping the Redhawks (13-38, 8-18 WAC) to a 1-0 advantage before the game went into a delay in the bottom of the second.
Out of the delay, Seattle U would tack on an unearned in the fifth, then surrender two UNC runs in the seventh, evening the score at 2-2. But the Redhawks took advantage of another Bear error in the eighth, scoring three times in the frame.
Tyler Yeh picked up the win in relief as he fanned seven while scattering four hits and two walks for two unearned runs.
The Redhawks and Bears conclude their season-finale series on Saturday with a 12 p.m. local and 11 a.m. Pacific start. For the most up-to-date information on game day, be sure to follow the Redhawks on Twitter at @seattleubase.
