LOS ANGELES - Occidental College swept past Pacific Lutheran, 9-0, in a non-conference men's tennis match played at the Occidental campus on Tuesday.

With the loss, the Lutes see their record drop to 7-5, including a 1-3 mark on their California spring break trip.

Freshman Jake Yannello came closest to giving the Lutes a team point. Jake and his cousin Mitch Yannello lost a close 9-7 decision at third doubles. Later, at sixth singles, Jake lost in a super tiebreaker, 6-1, 3-6, 1-0 (10-4).

All of the singles matches went to Oxy in straight sets, though Mitch Yannello pushed his opponent before falling by a 7-5, 6-4 score at fourth singles.

Pacific Lutheran returns to action at 10 a.m. on Wednesday when they play at Biola, marking the end of their spring break trip.
