Beavers drop game 2 to Sierra

 

American River College fell to 2-3 in BIG 8 Conference play with a 10-1 loss to the visiting Sierra College Wolverines on Thursday at Beaver Field.  Sierra scored three unearned runs in the first 3 innings off of starter Collin Carriger (Bella Vista) and never looked back.  Carriger cruised through the 4th inning but Sierra scored 6 times in the 5th inning to blow the game open.  The Beavers were able to get 10 hits off two Wolverines pitchers, but 13 strikeouts helped the Wolverines quiet most of the Beavers rallies.  Freshman 1B Lane Field (Whitney) had a stellar day at the plate with 3 hits, with one of them being an RBI single up the middle in the bottom of the 5th.   Freshman DH Justin Borchard (Woodland) also added a pair of hits.  The two teams will meet on Saturday at Sierra College.
