Pack roughed up at Metro

Metro State 19, CSU-Pueblo 2

DENVER - CSU-Pueblo couldn't point to many positives Saturday following a 19-2 loss to Metro State in Denver.

The ThunderWolves couldn't get effective pitching, sending five pitchers to the mound and getting its most effective performance from Zack Richmond (Jr., Chino Hills, Calif.), who allowed just two runs compared to the multiple runs allowed by other Pack pitchers.

Offensively wasn't much prettier, as the ThunderWolves mustered just five hits overall, its lone big hit coming on a home run from Kyle Wager (Jr., Globe, Ariz.).

The loss unceremoniously dips the Pack under .500 for the first time since 2008, now at 15-16 on the season and 9-9 in RMAC play.  Luckily for the ThunderWolves, in the weak RMAC Plains Division, CSU-Pueblo is still in first place, holding a one-game lead over Regis.

CSU-Pueblo will return to its home field next weekend with a four-game set vs. Colorado Christian.
