The Master’s College baseball team was eliminated from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Baseball Championship Opening Round after its 2-0 loss to Vanguard on Tuesday.

The Mustangs, who hosted the opening round for the second straight year, were in a must-win situation after their 4-0 loss to Davenport University of Michigan on Monday.

TMC’s offensive woes continued on Tuesday, producing only one hit in the loss.

TMC’s lone hit came in the fifth inning when Joe Riddle doubled into left field with one out. After a James Scott walk, Josh Brown moved Riddle to third and Scott to second with a groundout to Vanguard pitcher Eddie Rivera. But that’s as close as the Mustangs would get to scoring, as Collin Nyenhuis flied out to first to end the inning.

Vanguard (33-22) grabbed an early 1-0 lead in the second inning when Thomas Mobley doubled down the left field line and was moved over to third when John Schwer grounded out to TMC pitcher Tommy Kister. John Collins then plated Mobley with a single.

The Lions then padded their lead in the eighth after Nick Rodda reached third on an error and was brought home on a single by Brandon Sandoval.

TMC (37-18) ends its season on a five-game losing streak, having been outscored 21-7 in those games.
The Mustangs were also swept out of the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament earlier this month.
