A rugged pitching performance from Dustin Wells and a record-breaking day at the plate by Kadyn Nannini led the Bruins to a 6-3 victory in the first game.

The 8-6 Bruin victory saw each team come from behind, a bizarre instance of a home run ruled an out at first, and a walkoff homer by Kadyn Nannini.

February 20, 2016 Bruins Baffle Boxers In Saturday Sweep The Bruins kicked off their 2016 Northwest Conference schedule with a resounding 11-3 home win over Pacific University on Saturday afternoon.

February 12, 2016 Kent Sharp as Bruins Fall to Emory The Bruins continued their preseason tour against Emory University, consistently one of the top Division-III baseball programs in the country, on Friday afternoon in Texas. The Bruins ran into one of Emory's top arms, Jackson Weeg, and lost, 8-0.

February 2, 2016 2016 Baseball Preview Looking back at the past two seasons, the Bruins have been a very good team. In 2014, they finished 28-12, a .700 winning percentage, but were denied a bid to the regional tournament. Last season, despite significant roster changes, the Bruins rode out unexpected challenges to finish with a 13-11 record in the Northwest Conference, but lost out to Pacific Lutheran in the NWC tournament. It's difficult to say what's been missing; perhaps one more ball down the line lands fair, and the Bruins write a different story...

March 18, 2015 Just a Bit Outside The Bruins lost to Corban University on Wednesday afternoon, 11-8 – a respectable score, considering the Bruins trailed 10-0 after the first two innings.
