Bats Fall Quiet in Loss


Garrett Osterode -- SID

La Mirada, Calif. – The Catch welcomed the Barons to Biola University Saturday night as hey failed to get anything going offensively. So Cal lost this one by the final score of 5-0.

The starting pitcher for the Catch on Saturday was the right hander from Azusa Pacific, Hayden Jorgenson. Hayden battled through six innings of work and surrendered only three earned runs. This was one of Jorgensen’s best starts of the season and something to build off of heading into the school season.

Out of the bullpen Tyler Hazlett provided his best outing of the year. Hazlett went two strong innings allowing only two hits which produced zero runs. Tyler was also able to strike out one batter in the process.

The Catch offense was what fell quiet on Saturday. Although the Catch were able to collect seven hits and walk three times they could not score any runs. Once again it was the runners left on base that hurt the Catch, the inability to drive runners in has been a crutch all season long.

Jonathon Ducoff and Shay Whitcomb were the two stars for the Catch on offense, both providing multi-hit games and reaching base on multiple occasions. These two guys have anchored this lineup and have been consistent during the final stretch of the season.

The Catch head back to Compton on Sunday to face off against the Barons to try and salvage a victory in game three.
