CBD Photo Gallery: Portland Takes Series Finale in 10th Inning

Owen Jones is pumped after the win.MALIBU, Calif. — Pepperdine second baseman Joe Sever had done everything all game for the Waves. But as he ran toward home plate in the bottom of the tenth inning Sunday afternoon, the only thing he could do is hope for a booted ball or an errant throw.

With Tony Cooper on first base and Sever on third with one out in the tenth, Sam Meyer ht a grounder to second base. Instead of the error Sever hoped for, Portland’s Cody Lenahan started the tailor-made 4-6-3 double play to end the game and give the Pilots a 4-3, extra-inning victory at Eddy D. Field Stadium.

Sever, Rodriguez Talk About Extra Inning Loss to Portland

Joe Sever goes down to get a pitchMALIBU, Calif. — Pepperdine tied the game in the eighth inning, but the Waves (22-14, 5-4)couldn’t get the winning run home from second base in the ninth inning or the tying run from third base in the tenth inning as Portland took a 4-3 extra inning win in the series finale at Eddy D. Field Stadium Sunday afternoon.

The Waves rallied back from an early 3-0 deficit. They scored a pair of runs in the fifth inning on a bases loaded double by second baseman Joe Sever (pictured). In his next at bat in the eighth inning, Sever singled, moved to second  on a sacrifice bunt and scored when he stole third and the throw went into the outfield.

Portland (20-10, 7-5) got a leadoff double in the tenth inning and moved the runner to third. It looked like Pepperdine might escape the jam after the Waves nailed a runner at the plate on a squeeze play, but on the very next pitch Cody Lenahan singled to centerfield and Turner Gill just barely beat the throw for the go-ahead run.

Sever singled in the bottom half of the inning and moved to third base on a perfectly executed hit-and-run, but Sam Meyer grounded into a game-ending double play to give the Pilots the win and avoid the series sweep.
