Pack struggles in series finale loss to MSU Denver

DENVER, Colo. (March 4, 2018) In the final game of their four-game series, Colorado State University-Pueblo Baseball could not contain Metro State University Denver's offense. The Pack lost to the Roadrunners 16-4 Sunday at the Regency Athletic Complex.

The Roadrunners recorded 20 hits to improve to 7-9. The Pack fell to 9-8. CSU-Pueblo finished their first series of Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play 1-3.

Each of the Pack's nine hits came from a different player. Gilbert Sauceda (Jr., Indio, Calif.) was the only Pack player to reach base twice, drawing a pair of walks. Sauceda scored once in three trips.  

Tyler Waters (R-Fr., Denver, Colo.) went 1-for-2 after subbing in for Sauceda. Waters scored once.

Talon Schaller (Jr., Lakewood, Colo.) went 1-for-1 with a run scored.  Schaller doubled for his first extra base hit with the Pack.

Brandon Maes (R-Fr., Pueblo, Colo.) had a hit in his only trip to the plate. Maes drove in a run.  

Jake Boyd (Sr., Salt Lake City, Utah) and Billy Reyes (Jr., Yucaipa, Calif.) each went 1-for-3 with a double. Reyes drove in Boyd with his double in the fourth.

The Pack used six pitchers on the day. None of them escaped without surrendering a run.

The Roadrunners scored four runs in the first and four more in the third to go up 8-1. They would never let the Pack closer than six again as they ran away with a 16-4 win.

CSU-Pueblo's 12-game road trip will make its final stop next week in Golden, Colo. when the Pack faces Colorado School of Mines in a four-game set. The series starts Friday March 9 at 3p.m.
