COLLEGE PLACE - Walla Walla University hung with Eastern Oregon University in both games before dropping both ends of a softball twin bill here Sunday, 11-0 and 9-7.
"We looked good until about the sixth or seventh inning of both games," Wolves coach Mike Jemenez said. "It was interesting. In both games the girls were competitive. It came down to timely errors on our end."
WWU gave up its two errors in EOU's five-run seventh inning, as well as three errors in a seven-run fifth inning for the Mountaineers.
The Wolves left five or six runners on base in the opener, but couldn't get the hits to score them, Jemenez said.
"It was probably the best overall doubleheader we've played so far," he said. "The score in the first game doesn't indicate that, the seventh inning did us in."
Walla Walla travels to play at Boise State University club team Thursday, and Treasure Valley in Caldwell, Idaho, on Friday.
