Gagnon struck out 12 but allowed six runs in the loss.
March 12, 2010
Long Beach, Calif. - Starter Andrew Gagnon struck out 12 Shockers, including six of the first eight batters he faced, but a three-run home run from Ryan Jones started a six-run seventh for Wichita State in a 8-0 loss Friday.
Gagnon's 12 strikeouts were a career high, but his effort was matched by Wichita State starter Tim Kelley, who threw eight innings of shutout ball, striking out four and allowing four hits overall.
With Long Beach State trailing in the seventh 1-0 after allowing an unearned run, it was Wichta State that finally broke the game open. Cody Lassley started the inning with a single, and after Travis Bennett reached when the Dirtbags failed to catch the lead runner on a bunt, Jones' homer to right center put the Shockers ahead 4-0. Wichita State would eventually bat around in the inning, scoring three more runs to take a 7-0 lead.
Wichita State added another run in the eighth, and Chance Sossamon pitched the ninth for the Shockers to complete the shutout.
Long Beach State returns to Blair Field Saturday for another game with Wichita State. First pitch is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
