SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Seattle University baseball got its offense going Saturday evening at Tony Gwynn Stadium, scoring the most runs since the series finale victory at Pacific on March 3. But the Redhawks also succumb to allowing a season-high 12 runs against, falling 12-8 at San Diego State.
The Redhawks (4-14) led 3-0 after scoring twice in the second and once in the third, but the Aztecs (10-7) would respond with a five-run third.
Seattle U quickly snatched the lead back, scoring four times in the fourth off of three hits, a walk, a hit-by-pitch and an SDSU fielding error, to take a 7-5 advantage.
But the scoring was not over as the Aztecs piled on one run int he fourth, three in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the eighth.
An Austin Lively solo homer in the seventh was all the Redhawks could add down the stretch.
Reliever Ethan Christianson was strapped with the loss while Michael Paredes took the win for the Aztecs.
Seattle U and SDSI wrap up their three-game set on Sunday with a 1 p.m. first pitch.
