Ino Patron moved into a tie for fifth on the all-time hit list from LBSU.
May 4, 2014
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Long Beach State’s season-long five game win streak was snapped on Sunday with 6-0 loss in the series finale against Cal State Fullerton. Ino Patron had two of the Dirtbags’ four hits in the game, raising his career total to 215 hits to pull into a tie for fifth all-time.
Despite Sunday’s loss, the Dirtbags won their third consecutive weekend series and fifth out of the last six.
Grahamm Wiest helped Cal State Fullerton (23-20, 7-8 Big West) avoid the sweep with a lights-out performance on the mound. He went the distance for the complete game shutout, scattering five hits and striking out five batters.
The Dirtbags (23-22, 9-6 Big West) couldn’t get much going offensively as only two runners reached scoring position. Garrett Hampson led off with a single in the fourth and moved up on a fly ball that was caught deep in left field before being stranded. Patron reached third in the ninth after doubling with one out but was also left there.
The Titans started off the scoring in the third on a Matt Chapman sacrifice fly. Four hits in the fifth led to two more runs as David Olmedo-Barrera and Keegan Dale each singled in a run. Another run came across in the sixth while two hits and three wild pitches in the ninth plated the final two insurance runs.
Nick Sabo took the loss on the mound after allowing three run on four hits through four-plus innings. Ty Provencher pitched the next three innings and allowed one run on three hits. Nick Rosetta tossed the eighth and Kyle Friedrichs finished off the game in the ninth.
For the second game in a row, the Dirtbags were without their RBI-leader Richard Prigatano. Prigatano is listed as day-to-day after sustaining an injury while making a diving catch on Friday night.
The Dirtbags finish up their longest homestand of the year on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. when they host San Diego State.
