ADRIAN, Mich. - The Kalamazoo College baseball team lost 3-2 to Adrian College in the opening game of the MIAA Tournament on Wednesday.

A leadoff walk in the fourth followed by a pair of singles led to Adrian's first run of the game.
After a strikeout to start the bottom of the sixth, Adrian hit back-to-back home runs to left field to take the 3-2 lead, and Kalamazoo was unable to mount any threat over the final three innings.
Ryan Orr (7-3) took the loss on the mound for the Hornets, giving up five hits in eight innings with eight strikeouts and two walks.
