It took until the last half-inning for Northwest to score the runs needed to end the Pacific baseball winning streak.
The Indians (9-9) came into Tuesday’s game on a five-game winning streak before Northwest (8-13-1) scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 5-4.
Pacific struck first with one run in the first inning. Northwest responded with two runs in the home half and made it a 3-1 lead with another in the second.
The Indians were held off the scoreboard for four innings before picking up another run in the fifth. Pacific pulled ahead 4-3 with two runs in the sixth.
Zac Lunn pitched all 6.1 innings for the Indians, allowing three earned runs on nine hits and two walks with four strikeouts.
After Lunn recorded the first out in the seventh, Nothwest picked up a single and a triple to tie the score. Pacific then intentionally walked the bases loaded and on a ground ball were unable to record the out at the plate in a game-ending fielder’s choice.
