The University of Guam Baseball Team lost their second straight game in the final game of the Guam Major League regular season, as the Tritons fell to 7-4 to finish their regular season and drop into a three-way tie for third place.

UOG lost 23-13 to the RedHawks in their final game of the regular season as the Tritons absorbed their second two-game losing streak of the season as they head into the playoffs rounds of the GML.

The Tritons jumped out to a 6-0 lead after the top of the first inning, but the RedHawks kept coming back and finally took their first lead 13-10 in the fifth inning and pulled away in the later innings to mercy rule the Tritons 23-13 in the bottom of the eighth inning. 

Jaren Gumataotao took the loss for the Tritons on the mound while Kyle Martinez went 2-4 with three RBIs on the offense for UOG.

Over the past two games, the Tritons have allowed 37 runs, 28 hits, and committed 15 errors as UOG has lost all momentum over their long break of rainouts. 

UOG is now in a three-way tie for third place with the Pirates and Typhoons and the GML will play games to break the ties which will be picked later. The Tritons could end up as the No. 3 to No. 5 seed depending on how the games results are finished. UOG will be in the one-game playoffs with the winners facing either the Dodgers or Junior Nationals in the semifinal round of the playoffs. Semifinals will be two 3-of-5 series with the winners meeting in the finals (4-of-7 series). (PR)
