On March 22 baseball headed to Pomona, California to face off against the Cal Poly Pomona Broncos. Despite a home-field advantage, the Broncos were no match against the Eagles, losing 6-2. 

TOP O’ THE THIRD TO YA 

With a relatively uneventful first two innings, the Eagles entered the top of the third ready to score runs. A single to third base by sophomore catcher Rhett Stein started things off for Biola. Redshirt junior outfielder Brandon Thomas followed his lead with a single of his own. With two bases loaded, sophomore outfielder Matthew Nyce sent the runners home with a single through the left side, giving the Eagles a two-point advantage. 

Nyce earned the third run for the Eagles off of a double down the right field line by senior infielder Oscar Serratos Jr. 

SECURING THE WIN 

The top of the fourth gave the Eagles a chance to increase their advantage. Junior outfielder Tyler Baca tripled down the right field line to bring Nyce and sophomore infielder Andrew Lujan in, ending the inning 5-0. 

The Eagles added their last run of the game at the top of the seventh inning. A fielding error allowed sophomore infielder Jorge Lucero to reach home, effectively securing the victory. The Broncos added their first runs at the bottom of the seventh, but were unable to catch up. The Eagles took the win, 6-2. 

 Baseball (12-9 overall, 8-4 conference) will head to Azusa Pacific University for a doubleheader on March 25 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Stats from today’s game are located on the Biola Athletics website.
