Tough Night at the Pete

Cal State Fullerton scattered twenty two hits in their decisive victory over Southern Miss in the first of a three game series. Cal State was able to score early and often in their domination Friday night.

Southern Miss escaped the first inning only giving up one run with Fullerton leaving the bases loaded. Fullerton would not let that happen again in the second inning as they would pound out eight runs sparked by a three run shot hit by Josh Fellhauer that would end Todd McInnis' night for the Golden Eagles.

USM's luck would get no better in the third as Jared Clark, Nick Ramirez, and Dustin Garneau all hit homers en route to a five run inning.

Seth Hester would come in and get the scoring under control, but it was far too late as CSF had already gained a 14-0 lead. The Titans would add one more in the sixth and the Eagles would get two late inning runs to bring the final score to 15-2.

Todd McInnis would have his first bad outing of the year giving up five runs in only 1.1 innings of work.

Moses Munoz's night was not much better as he gave up nine runs in 1.2 innings. Seth Hester and Jeff Stanley actually had very impressive nights; they combined for six innings without giving up an earned run.

Daniel Renken took the win for the Titans, working five spotless innings of baseball. Kelly Travis and Ryan Ackland would both work two innings giving up one run a piece.

USM's bats couldn't get going tonight getting only two runs on six hits. Corey Stevens and Brian Dozier both went 1 for 4 with an RBI a piece.

The Titans of Cal State were hot early in the game scoring 14 of their 15 runs in the first three innings. 11 different Titans had a hit tonight. The player that had the biggest night was Josh Fellhauer. The Junior center fielder was 4 for 5 with a homerun, three RBIs, and three runs scored. Jared Clark and Joe Scott also had big nights belting out three RBIs each.

The Golden Eagles and Cal State Fullerton will return to action tomorrow afternoon at Pete Taylor Park. First pitch is set for three o'clock.
