San Diego, Calif. - The Dirtbags finished with nine hits, including three from junior Jeff McNeil and a pair from Richard Prigatano, including a triple, but it wasn't enough to compete with an offensive explosion from San Diego State in a 12-2 loss Tuesday night on the road.
The Aztecs finished with 17 total hits, and six Long Beach State walks added to the issues as the Dirtbags matched their largest deficit on the year.
San Diego State (10-11) got on the board first, scoring in the first inning. Greg Allen led off the inning with a base hit, and after a sacrifice, back to back hits from Jake Romanski and Tyler France brought home two runs as the Aztecs took a quick 2-0 lead.
Long Beach State (9-12) put the leadoff batter on in each of the next two innings, and both times, the Aztecs were able to bring home that batter, first on an RBI single from Tim Zier in the second, and a RBI single from Danny Sheehan in the third.
Richard Prigatano led off the fourth inning with a triple off of the wall, and came home on an RBI single by Zach Miller. An error on a sacrifice kept the pressure on, and a walk to Alex DeGoti loaded the bases with one out in the inning. Robards was able limit the damage by getting the next two outs, and the Aztecs added two runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 6-1 lead.
Three straight walks in the bottom of the fifth led to a four-run inning for the Aztecs, as San Diego State took a 10-1 lead. Long Beach State scored an unearned run on an RBI single in the top of the sixth inning on McNeil's third hit of the day.
San Diego State added two more runs in the eighth inning as Nate Underwood made his return to action following over a year missed due to injury.
The Dirtbags return home to host No. 8 Cal State Fullerton for three games this weekend at Blair Field. The series begins on Friday, with first pitch scheduled for 6 p.m.
