LMU softball opens the 2015 season at home Saturday, hosting Sacramento State at 9 a.m.
The Lions and Cougars will face off in a WCC doubleheader Friday, followed by a single game Saturday.
LMU would twice score first but succumb to a pair of late Gael rallies.
Sterling Shuster led LMU by hitting .500 (10-for-20), with one home run, 10 RBIs, four runs, a .650 slugging percentage and .565 on base percentage in seven games last week.
Four Lions launched home runs Sunday morning as the Lions ran away with a 9-3 victory over Dartmouth.
