Elks sloppy in the field, fall to Seals

The Bend Elks struggled in the field Saturday, committing six errors in a 10-5 nonleague defeat against the San Francisco Seals at Vince Genna Stadium.

The Seals jumped out to a 5-2 lead after three innings, knocking Bend starter Connor Harris out of the game with one out in the third. San Francisco recorded 12 hits against five pitchers Saturday, two of which were home runs.

The Elks (22-15 overall) also managed 12 hits but left seven runners on base. Tanner Ring went 2-for-4 with a double and Turner Gill was 1-for-4 with a solo home run to highlight the Bend offense.

San Francisco pitcher Junior Zavala earned the win Saturday, scattering 10 hits over six innings. The right-hander allowed three runs while striking out one and walking two.

Harris took the loss for Bend after allowing five runs — only three of which were earned — and six hits over 2 1⁄3 innings.

Baseball at Genna Stadium continues today. The Bend Bucks — the Elks’ developmental squad — plays the Seals in a seven-inning game at 2:05 p.m. while the Elks face the San Francisco club in a nine-inning contest at 5:05 p.m.
