KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - After taking both league counters from the Warriors on Saturday, the Owls got the third and final game behind the bat of Baylee Wyscaver as she hit an RBI walk-off single to left-field scoring Cierra Barkis with the game winner in the bottom of the seventh leading No.13 Oregon Tech (29-10, 15-3 CCC) past No.10 Corban University (22-11, 11-7 CCC) 6-5 Sunday at John and Lois Stilwell field. Corban picked-up a 2-1 victory ending the OIT win streak at 11.
"It was another good performance by the ladies today getting some timely hits and pitching well against a solid hitting team in Corban," said Head Coach Greg Stewart. "We put pressure on their defense in almost every inning of the first game and just could not string enough hits together to win game two."
