Warriors bats go quiet as UBC earns series split

Anthony Cusati’s two-run homerun in the sixth inning was the difference as the University of British Columbia defeated the Lewis-Clark State baseball team 2-1 in the final game of a four-game NAIA West series in Vancouver Sunday. 

The win gave the Thunderbirds a split of the series as both clubs won two games – LC falls to 26-7 overall and 16-3 in NAIA West play. 

LC’s Kyle Callahan hit a solo homerun – his second in as many games, but LC could only muster four total hits in the loss, while striking out a season-high 15 teams. 

Anthony Toribio, who made his first start of the season for Lewis-Clark State allowed just two hits, but gave up the homerun to fall to 0-1. 

The 4th ranked Warriors go back on the road this weekend for another four-game series in Caldwell against the College of Idaho. The series opens with a single game Friday at 2pm followed by a doubleheader Saturday at 11am and a single game Sunday morning at 11. 

All four games will be broadcast on AM 950 KOZE and online at koze.com. (KOZE Sports)
