SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Seattle University baseball scored five runs at San Diego State Sunday afternoon at Tony Gwynn Stadium, but the Redhawks could not slow the home team as it pounded out 15 hits for 11 runs on its way to an 11-5 win over SU in the series finale between the two teams.
The top of the order did the majority of the damage for the Aztecs (11-7) as the top five batters combined for 12 hits and 10 RBIs.
The Redhawk pitching staff struggled to slow SDSU as starter Alex Jemel lasted just 3.2 innings after surrendering seven hits for five earned runs. Five others saw time on the mound with Desmond Parisotto having the best outing. The freshman struck out one, gave up two hits and did not allow a run in 2.1 innings of work.
Western Athletic Conference play is on tap for Seattle U (4-15) as the squad returns home to host Utah Valley in a three-game series beginning Friday, Mar. 22 at 4 p.m. at Bannerwood Park.
