Concordia University split at Pacific Lutheran to open its baseball season on Monday.

The Cavaliers won the opener 5-3, then lost 1-0, despite allowing only one hit.

In game two, Concordia starter Harrison McGhee struck out seven batters and walked none in six innings, but PLU won on Curtis Wildun's solo home run in the fifth. Reliever Ryan Garrett tossed the final two innings for the Cavs and struck out two.

Concordia had five hits in the nightcap but couldn't push a runner past second base.

In the opener, the Cavs had 10 hits, bunching three in the fourth inning to take a 2-0 lead. The score was 3-3 when Concordia plated two unearned runs in the top of the eighth.

Blake Evetts pitched the ninth for the save, and Brad Bearden, who went two innings in relief of Jason Snodgrass, earned the win.

Concordia leadoff hitter Blake Drake, a junior center fielder from Ramona, Calif., went 2 for 4 in both games.

Catcher Ben Talbot, a senior from Lacey, Wash., was 2 for 4 with two RBIs in the opening game.
