It continues to be a tough year for the McPherson College baseball team.

The Bulldogs lost four more games over the weekend, losing a pair at home on Friday to Sterling, then again being swept by the Warriors on the road Saturday.

A summary:

• Sterling 7, Mac 5 — The Warriors had to score two in the sixth and two more in the seventh to fend off the Bulldogs’ upset bid. Stephon Miller and Evan Willow banged out two hits for Mac. Ethan Dowling took the loss.

• Sterling 8, Mac 2 — The Bulldogs were held to just four hits, with Dylan Fontenot coming up with only RBI. Matt Bryan and Kyle McDonald scored the Mac runs. Loren Farley took the loss.

• Sterling 3, Mac 1 — In a well-played game, Sterling’s two fourth-inning runs were the difference. Reily Martin’s RBI single drove in Shane VanSteenburg with the only Bulldog run. Nathan Crow pitched well in defeat.

• Sterling 12, Mac 6 — The Warriors scored all their runs in three innings to complete the sweep. The Bulldogs scored all six of their runs in the sixth inning. Kyle McDonald had two hits and plated two runs, while Stephon Miller also came up with two hits. Trevor Haycock took the loss.

Mac faded to 2-18 in the KCAC and 8-34 overall. It plays crosstown rival Central Christian College on Tuesday.
