They teams hit the road for a three-game series starting Sunday at Alpine, and the Saguaros (30-11) fell short again, losing 5-3.

Brock Ephan of Lewis-Clark State College accounted for all three of Tucson’s runs with two home runs. He now has eight home runs with 38 RBIs and is batting .411.

The teams resume their series at Alpine on Monday at 6 p.m., Tucson time.
