Spartans Down UC Santa Barbara In Second Game

San Jose State University got contributions from veteran pitchers Max Peterson and Ryan Shopshire, senior outfielder Michael Drake, and a pair of true freshmen in Anthony Bona and Michael Reiling in posting a 5-2 triumph over UC Santa Barbara in the middle game of a non-conference baseball series at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium.

In the top of the first, Bona, the Spartans' designated hitter, drew a two-out walk from senior right-hander Zachary Samuels, before senior catcher Anthony Aguilera lifted a fly ball deep to left field that was caught at the warning track by Gunnar Terhune. For the first out of the bottom half, Terhune, chopped a slow grounder toward Reiling that the rookie second baseman charged, picked up bare-handed and tossed just in time to first baseman Danny Stienstra. Peterson, a junior left-hander, proceeded to strike out Brian Gump swinging and induce a groundout by Eric Oliver that shortstop Kyle Bellows ranged over for behind second base to gather and end the 1-2-3 frame.
