BASEBALL STRIKES OUT AGAINST CAL BAPTIST

COUGARS LOSE THREE HEART-BREAKERS IN SERIES

MICHAEL RAWSON
SPORTS EDITOR

The Cal State San Marcos baseball team played their hearts out in a three-game weekend series against #3 Cal Baptist, but came away empty-handed.

In game one at home, junior San Diego City College transfer Adam Bileckyj pitched brilliantly, shutting out the Lancers through 6 innings and allowing just one hit. But the Cougars never mustered a run and eventually fell 2-0. Lancers’ starter Drew Madrigal quieted the Cougars through 5 innings, and Erik Wallace finished the job with 4 scoreless to seal the win.

Games two and three were away at Cal Baptist. This time the Cougars would find ways to manufacture more runs, but so would their opponent. The Lancers took game one 4-3, coming back from a 3-0 deficit. CSUSM scored one run in the 1st and two in the sixth on RBI hits by Johnny Omahen and Trent Jemmett. But the Lancers answered with 4 runs in the bottom of the 6th to take the lead that would hold for the victory. The Lancers then stole the back-and-forth second contest 10-9 on two ninth-inning hit by pitches by Omahen. CSUSM will look to return to their winning ways against Point Loma Nazarene on Tuesday.
