The T-Wolves defense battled but faltered in the end and the offense sputtered in a 2-3 loss to a solid Pioneer squad Tuesday.
On offense the bright spots included a pair of hits by Kramer Sutey who went 2x3, and a pair of doubles by Wade Brill in going 2x3 himself though the T-Wolves had ten runners on base that could not be brought home in the contest.
Jay Standen took control on the bump and pitched tough for six innings allowing just two runs on three hits and finishing his day in the sixth with two consecutive strike outs. Pioneer did a good job as well allowing two runs on six hits but erasing a couple threats by turning a pair of double plays. In the final frame, Pioneer did damage on three errors and a hit which provided the margin needed to win.
