SEATTLE, Wash. – The Omaha baseball team dropped its final game of the series, 8-6, against Seattle Sunday afternoon.
The Mavericks walk away from the series with a split, as both teams each won two games over the weekend. Omaha now falls to 3-4 this season.
On the mound, starter Spencer Koelewyn pitched 4.0 innings, tallied seven strikeouts and allowed just two walks. Jacob Mohler earned the loss (0-1) while Seattle’s Alden Huschle had three strikeouts with no walks for the win (1-0). Tyler Yeh earned the save in the final inning.
INSIDE THE INNINGS
Seattle took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second. Two Maverick runs in the top of the third by a Lombardi ground out for an RBI and a DeBonville single RBI put them ahead. The Omaha lead increased to 5-1 in the top of the fifth when Bonar doubled own the left field line for a pair of RBI, followed by a Krumwiede single for an RBI. Seattle, however, cut the Mavericks’ lead at 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run homer and a single RBI.
Another Bonar run off a single put Omaha back up by two (6-4) in the top of the seventh, but the Redhawks rallied back and scored four runs in the final two innings to secure the win. A single in the bottom of the seventh and a double for three RBI an inning later gave the Redhawks the two-run victory.
The Mavericks now have four days off before they continue the road slate. Omaha heads to Savannah, Ga., for a three-game series at Savannah State Friday, March 1, through Sunday, March 3.
