ROCKLIN, Cal--- The Oregon Tech baseball team suffered a stunner at William Jessup on Sunday. A walk-off double from Joseph Luevano in the bottom of the 10th inning sent the Warriors home with a 6-5 victory.
"That was a tough one," said OIT head coach Jacob Garsez. "We did a lot of good things but that was a tough way to end."
Oregon Tech had a much more productive pitching day than in its first game with William Jessup. Dylan Grogan managed four innings on 95 pitches. Grogan allowed two runs on just four hits. Jesse Dunham managed five innings allowing eight hits and four runs.
"Both guys that threw today threw tremendous. I mean, they gave us plenty of chances to win that game," said Garsez.
The Warriors utilized six different pitchers. Benny May managed the bulk of the work while pitching four innings. He allowed four hits and two runs. Ricardo Torres Jr. closed the game for the Warriors and allowed one hit and zero runs.
Mitchel Swanson had a productive day swinging the bat. Swanson had two hits and two RBI on four at bats. All of that led to a .750 slugging percentage.
The loss drops Oregon Tech to 0-2 on the season. William Jessup improves to 18-11 on the season.
Next up, OIT will be on the road to take on the College of Idaho for a four-game series starting on February 5.
