Gators are winners of five of their last six games

SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco State baseball team bested Holy Names 6-1 in non-conference play on Monday afternoon at Maloney Field.

A four-run fifth inning was the difference. Zac Neumann led off the frame with a single and Harley Lopez doubled him home to tie the game at 1-1. After Trevor Rogers was intentionally walked to load the bases, Jack Harris made the Hawks (7-23) pay with a chop single that scored two runs. Antone Self added an RBI on a fielder's choice to give the Gators (11-19) a three-run lead. Brady Dorn's two-run single in the sixth grew the lead to 6-1.

SF State starter Jack Higgins breezed through the first inning with a nine-pitch inning but an infield error in the second led to an unearned run when Cameron Trudel's hard single to left center scored Paul Kennedy from first.

The Gators turned the ball over to the bullpen in the third and Daniel Jimenez got out of a bases-loaded jam with a strikeout to end the inning. Brett Elgin pitched a scoreless fourth and Jack Cornish (1-0) allowed a hit in the fifth but induced a double play to end the inning to pick up the win. Jordyn Eglite threw two scoreless innings, Jordan Yrastorza pitched the eighth, and Cameron Crone struck out the side in the ninth.
