LAKE OSWEGO, Ore.– After Wednesday 8-1 loss versus Lake Oswego, Pacers Head Coach Marco Tavera said that his team needed to take it one game at a time.
That’s what they did Wedneday when they defeated the Lakers 2-1 on Lake Oswego High School home turf to tie up the three game series entering Friday’s rubber match between the two schools.
In six innings and 101 pitches of work, starting pitcher Jesse Davis tallied up six strikeouts on three hits as his offense produced six hits and built a 2-0 lead entering the bottom of the sixth inning.
But, the Lakers made it interesting as they cut into the Lakeridge lead when Lake Oswego scored off an error.
That run will be all she wrote for the Lakers however as Tommy Andrew came in for relief of Davis to make the Lake Oswego offense ground out, fly out and then strikeout following a single to end the game and gave the Pacers a much needed win to keep up with the Top three teams in the Three Rivers League.
Both teams will have Thursday off before getting back to it Fridayy, 5pm, at Lakeridge High School.
