Pilots shut out 4-0 in final game of series against USF
Sunday, the Portland Pilots fell to the University of San Francisco Dons 4-0, giving the Dons the sweep for the series.
It was a defensive battle early on, with neither team scoring in the first three innings. The momentum of the game shifted into the Dons’ favor during the fourth inning when USF’s Michael Perri hit the ball out of the park allowing for a home run that brought two players home and bringing the Dons into the lead. 2-0 at the top of the fourth.
The offensive leaders for the Pilots were Ryan Kim and Chad Stevens who were able to get on bases but failed to score as a result of the aggressive fielding by USF.
The Dons continue to thrive in the WCC, with six conference wins and zero losses with their victory over the Pilots.
The team will be on the road this Thursday to play Santa Clara, who sits at fifth in the conference.
