After splitting the series with a win and a loss, the Loyola baseball team faced off against the University of Mobile in an SSAC showdown. The Wolf Pack fell 12-0 at home versus the Rams.

Loyola took home the first game but could not sink the second on the double header on Friday. On Saturday, the Rams were too much for the Wolf Pack, as they kept Loyola scoreless in the final game of the series.

In just the first two innings, Mobile lit up, sending 11 runner home.

Loyola could not contain Mobile.

Ben Condara recorded 8 put-outs and both Brandon Wilson Jr. and Spencer Rosenbohm had four assists.

Loyola now drops 12-14 on the season and 1-5 in conference play. Although the team posts a 3-12 away record, they have an impressive 9-2 home record.

Loyola looks to battle on their home turf versus NCAA DII Spring Hill College for a doubleheader. The game takes place on Wednesday at 4 PM.
