An Update From Our Roving LMU Baseball Reporter

LMU Lion Billy Wilson

This week Team Living90045 welcomes a guest post from Catherine Galanti. Would you like to write for us? More info here.

The Lions began conference play last weekend with a three game series against the University of San Francisco Dons. This marked the fifth series of the season, and the fourth the Lions have won.

LMU has taken almost every series so far, the exception being a split four game series against Washington State. Though the Lions have not swept an opponent, they have not yet dropped a weekend series.

The Lions put on a show before heading up to San Francisco, topping USC 4-3 with a walk-off homer from Billy Wilson in the bottom of the 10th. What a way to head into conference play.

LMU continued to impress, as a grand slam from Brandon Shearer on Friday gave the Lions an early lead over USF. However, the Dons retaliated with their own slam on Saturday, breaking up a scoreless game in the bottom of the ninth. The Lions recovered on Sunday afternoon, with a 3-2 victory. The Lions now have a winning record of 11-9 overall, and 2-1 record in West Coast Conference (WCC) play. The Lions currently stand third in the WCC.

Though LMU was slated to face the Cal State Northridge Matadors on Tuesday, the game was canceled due to rain. The two teams will make up that game on April 18th, but first the Lions will take on BYU Thursday-Saturday for three more games of WCC action. The first pitch on Thursday and Friday is at 6:00 pm, with a 1:00 pm start on Saturday.  You can find ticket and schedule information here.

I hope to see you at a game.  Go Lions!
