A balanced, continuous attack led SU to victory as they plated a run in the fifth, sixth, and ninth innings en route to the win.
In the fifth, Jack Reisinger (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) scored on a Dalton Hurd (Bend, Ore.) RBI single while, in the next inning, Brock Carpenter (Milton, Wash.) scored on a Hornet throwing error after advancing to third on a passed ball and reaching base on a walk.
At the plate, SU outhit the Hornets, 8-3, on hits from eight different Redhawks. On the mound, Nick Meservey (Scottsdale, Ariz.) picked up the win, improving to 7-2 while Zach Wolf (Dana Hills, Calif.) earned his team-leading 11th save of the season.
Seattle U plays for the regular season title and the No. 1 seed in next week’s WAC Tournament on Saturday. Due to a head-to-head tiebreaker, with a win and a NM State loss, the Redhawks will earn the No. 1 seed. With a win, SU will clinch at least a share of the WAC regular season title.
Saturday’s series finale has been moved up to 11 a.m. to avoid rain forecasted for the afternoon in the Sacramento area. Links to live stats and the audio broadcast are on the baseball schedule page at GoSeattleU.com.
