Gonzaga baseball season ends in Blacksburg, losing 15-6 to Columbia


BLACKSBURG, Virginia. — The Gonzaga baseball team’s season came to an end Sunday morning.

In their second matchup in three days, GU baseball fell to the Columbia University Lions by a score of 15-6, ending what was a historical season for the GU baseball team. The Zags previously defeated Wright State to keep their season alive on Saturday night.

The Zags took an early 3-0 lead in the game when sophomore Grayson Sterling hit a sacrifice fly to score redshirt freshman Enzo Apodaca. Later in the inning, senior Shea Kramer hit a single to center field, scoring senior catcher Tyler Rando and freshman Cade McGee. 

However, things would take a turn for the worst for the Zags, as the Lions would score the next 11 runs in the game over the next four innings. Trystan Vrieling took the hill for the Zags, giving up five earned runs on four hits in 1.2 innings pitched, striking out three batters. Alec Gomez would come in the game and not see much more success, giving up six earned runs on four hits in 1.2 innings pitched. 

The Zags end the season crowned WCC Champions for the second year in a row.
