Seward- The Hastings College baseball team was unable to get the bats going, with only two hits in a 3-0 loss to Concordia on Wednesday evening.
Grant Svec (FR/Gretna, NE) threw 3.2 innings of perfect ball, but Concordia broke it up with a string of five singles to score three runs and give the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead.
The Broncos threatened again in the top of the 6th with two outs in the inning, as Frei walked Alex Utrup (JR/Lincoln, NE) singled and McMullen was hit again by a pitch, but another strikeout ended the inning.
The Broncos (24-20, 13-11) look to rebound when they travel to Sioux City, Iowa to take on Briar Cliff in a four-game weekend series. First pitch is at 1 p.m. on Friday.
The series against Briar Cliff also has major implications on the Broncos' seeding in the Cypress Risk Management GPAC Baseball Tournament. With the losses to Concordia, it puts Hastings at a tie for fourth in the GPAC with Dordt, but Hastings is in a position where they can rise to first in the GPAC, but can also drop to eighth depending on how they do in Sioux City.
