Whitworth Topples Pacific To Cap Sweep

Baseball/softball

Jason Tracy, backed by a 12-hit attack, pitched Whitworth to a 9-5 Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges baseball win over Pacific on Monday in Forest Grove, Ore.

Tracy scattered nine hits, struck out one and left eight Boxers on base as the Pirates (12-15, 10-2 NCIC) won the makeup game to complete a sweep of a three-game visit.

Eric Brown’s two-run double highlighted a five-run third inning. He finished with three RBIs. Jack Arthaud, who had driven in three runs in the first game of a doubleheader sweep Sunday, delivered two more. And Jason Francek amassed four singles to cap an 8-for-13 series.
