Riverside, CA - Making their second trip this season to Antelope Valley, the Golden Eagles were looking to avenge their two losses to the Pioneers back on February 1.
Instead, the Golden Eagles were unable to overcome early deficits in both games of the afternoon doubleheader.
In the first game, the Pioneers jumped on the board early with a run in the first inning. They would add another run in the third inning, before closing the game out with a total of seven runs being scored in the fifth, sixth, and seventh inning.
The Golden Eagles scored two runs in the top of the ninth, to go along with a run that was scored in the fifth, but that wouldn't nearly be enough to close the gap on their way to the 9-3 loss.
Despite the loss, the Golden Eagles scored the three runs on six hits, with all six hits coming from six different players.
In the second game, the Pioneers once again took control of the game with four runs in the first inning, and never relinquished the lead on their way to the 5-1 victory.
La Sierra was held to just one run on four hits in the game.
The baseball team falls to 1-18 on the season. They will look to take advantage of their spring break with a trip to central and northern California. The team will face Fresno Pacific on Tuesday before heading to Menlo College on Wednesday, along with another doubleheader on Thursday against Oregon Institute of Technology that will be played at Menlo College.
