Loyola’s baseball team closed out the weekend winless versus conference rival Bethel University at Segnette Field.

The Wolf Pack were blown away in their doubleheader on March 8, dropping game one with a score of 7-1 and falling in game two, 11-4.

Loyola also fell in game three on March 9 with a score of 5-3.

Despite the series sweep, there were still some positives in Loyola’s final game.

History junior Nathan Law is now batting a team-best .432 this year after going 3-5 with two doubles and an RBI in game three. Law has recorded a hit in each game in which he registered an at-bat except for one.

Business management sophomore Michael Toscano was also consistent from the plate, going 2-2 with a run scored and a stolen base, and is now batting .417 this year.

Junior Jase Biehl also had a notable game, going 2-4 with one run scored in game three.

Loyola now has an overall record of 11-12 and a conference record of 0-6.

They will kick off a home series against Brewtown-Parker with a doubleheader on March 15.
