Blaze twice have leads but can't hold on in disappointing loss to Lancaster on Sunday afternoon

Blaze leave too many men on in defeat to Lancaster

Lancaster, Calif. - The Blaze had several chances to put Lancaster away but ultimately lost, 6-5, to the Jethawks on Sunday afternoon in Lancaster.

Manager Ken Griffey's squad left the bases loaded twice, including catcher Chris Berset striking out to end the top-half of the ninth and leaving the bases full. 

That was all the Jethawks needed in the bottom half of the inning with the game tied at five when Andrew Alpin drove in the winning run with a double into the rightfield corner. 

In addition to Berset going deep, infielder Dominic D'Anna hit a three-run shot, his third of the year, in the 7th to give the Blaze a 5-4 lead.

The Blaze have Monday off before beginning a three game series at High Desert on Tuesday.
