Pilots Lose Heartbreaker, but Pick Up Recruit

Post by Stonehouse on Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:25 am

Poor UP lost a brutal game to Washington on Saturday:

The game was tied 3-3 heading into the ninth, and UP went up 5-3 in the top of the ninth after a HR by freshman SS Riley Henricks (who is having an awesome year, by the way) and an RBI single by Danny Meier. But then UW came back to win 6-5 in the bottom half of the frame with four straight hits to start off the ninth. DANG!

Anyway, UP has one more tune-up game (a home game against Lewis & Clark on Wednesday) before WCC play begins this weekend at home against LMU. Hope the weather is nice!

As for the recruit... says UP has a commitment from Beau Fraser, a catcher for Aptos High School in LA and the No. 11 HS baseball team in the country:

Obviously I know nothing about Fraser, but I would venture to guess that plucking a kid from LA who has former MLB players as coaches and who is the catcher for a nationally ranked HS team is a good get.
