EVANSTON, Ill. -- Tim Ryan tied the career stolen base record as Oakland (18-26) lost, 6-0, to Northwestern (16-25) on Wednesday at Rocky Miller Park. Ryan also had three hits to lead the Golden Grizzlies' offensive effort.
"While I'm disappointed with the loss, I thought we had a lot of guys throw well today," said Oakland head coach John Musachio. "Our guys gave a great effort and hit some balls hard, but at people. We were beaten today, but it wasn't for lack of effort."
