The Loyola baseball team suffers a 11-7 loss to SSAC rival Bethel University, giving the Wolf Pack a series sweep.

In their last home series of the season, Loyola honored seven senior members of the team for their years of play.

The festivities were spoiled early on as Bethel scored 8 runs in the first five innings.

The Wolf Pack tried to bounce back with runs in the fourth and fifth innings but were kept scoreless for the remainder of the game.

The sweep marks the second time this season an SSAC opponent has left Loyola without a win.

With a 21-29 overall record, the team will travel to Middle Georgia State to face off in the last series of the regular season.
