Momentum didn’t pick up for the Wildcats until the seventh inning in a tournament game against Lewis-Clark State on Feb. 20.

The loss was the team’s second and brings the No. 8-ranked team’s win-loss record to 5-2.

Before competing against Lewis-Clark, the team dropped a game against St. Martin University on Feb. 19.

The ’Cats scored two runs against the Warriors during the game. The scorelessness ended when freshman Tim Wilson crossed home plate on a hit by freshman center field Kramer Lindell. The second run was scored once a single by freshman outfielder Clayton Truex brought in junior infielder Ryan Larson.

The next game is slated for noon on Feb. 26, when Linfield will have a home-field advantage over Oregon Institute of Technology.
