Matt Dallas, baseball
Matt Dallas went 1-for-3 with the Titans lone RBI in 15-1 loss vs Skagit Valley at Tacoma Super Regional on Friday, May 17, 2019.

The Titans scored four runs in the 8th to tie the game at 5 but fall 7-6.

How it happened: Mt. Hood opened the 1st with an RBI-singled.

Then after a quick 2nd, the Saints got an RBI-groundout to make it 2-0 in the 3rd.

The Saints got their third run in the 4th inning off a solo home run.

In the bottom half-of-the 4th Jack Swisher reached on a one out error. After a groundout moved Swisher to second, Jaxon Woodhouse singled in Swisher for the Titans first run and were down 3-1.

Continuing to add on the Saints got an RBI-single in the top-of-the 5th and 6th innings and extend their led to 5-1.

Still down 5-1, the Titans opened the bottom-of-the 8th with a Hayden Curtis walk, a Matt Dallas single and a Jack Swisher single off the wall in right-center field that should've been a two-run double, but Hayden Curtis got a bad read at second and didn't go half way in case the ball wasn't caught, so the Titans had the bases with no outs.

After a string of changes, the Saints had a new pitcher for Nathan Sprenger. Sprenger would single home Hayden Curtis to make it a 5-2 game.

Jaxon Woodhouse was then hit-by-a-pitch to make it 5-3.

After a fielder's choice out at home Curran Mitzel walked with the bases loaded to make it 5-4.

Takanori Shimizu came up with one out and on the first pitch hit a sacrifice fly to deep center field to tie the game at 5.

After finally waking up offensively, the Titans conceded a walk and sacrifice bunt to open the 9th. The Saints would get an RBI-single and RBI-groundout to take a 7-5 lead.

Trying to rally again, the Titans got a one-out single and two out walk to put runners at first and second with two outs for Logan Zozaya. Zozaya would pop-up to second base, but he dropped the pop-up and the Titans scored a run and had the lead run at first base in pinch-runner Kyle Strange, but a pop-up from Skyler Vail ended the game.
