Josh Guerra drove in the lone run for Long Beach State.
April 5, 2013
Stockton, Calif. - The Dirtbags tallied six hits Friday at Pacific, but lost a tough 3-1 game on the road in the opener of the series. Josh Guerra drove in Long Beach State's run in the top of the fifth inning.
Pacific (8-16, 1-3 Big West) opened up the scoring with a run in the bottom of the third inning off of starter Shane Carle. Tyler Sullivan started off the inning with a single, and after stealing second base for the second of three times on the day, he came home to score on a double from Brett Sullivan.
Long Beach State (11-17, 2-2 Big West) tied the score in the top of the fifth inning, as Richard Prigatano led off the frame by singling into center field and advancing on an error by Sullivan. Moving to third on a sacrifice, he then scored on a Josh Guerra single to tie the game.
Carle ran into trouble with the Sullivans again in similar fashion to the third inning in the bottom half of the frame. After a leadoff single and stolen base from Tyler, Brett had an RBI single to give Pacific the lead once more at 2-1.
Pacific reliever Mike Hagar came on at that point, striking out Guerra, and getting a popup for a second out before ending the inning with a fly ball from Jeff McNeil, ending the threat. Hagar went on to pick up his first save of the season ultimately retiring nine straight batters over three innings, while Pacific added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth inning.
Junior Jake Stassi will take the mound for the Dirtbags tomorrow as the series resumes at 2 p.m.
