March 10, 2005
FRESNO, Calif. - Junior right-hander Josh Monroe pitched a solid seven innings to lift the Gonzaga University baseball team (11-6) to a 4-1 win over the University of Pennsylvania (0-6) Thursday afternoon at the Pepsi/Johnny Quick Classic.
Monroe (3-1) allowed five hits to Penn's batters on the afternoon but only a handful made it out of the infield as Monroe struck out eight batters while allowing one unearned run. Penn scored their only run of the game in the seventh inning when Kyle Armeny hit a sacrifice fly to right field which brought across Jarron Smith, who had walked.
The Bulldogs got on the boards first in the third inning as both junior second baseman Scott Campbell and senior center fielder Jeff Culpepper scored on back-to-back wild pitches by Penn's starting pitcher Bill Kirk. GU put up another run on Culpepper's RBI single to right field in the fifth inning which brought home Campbell, who had doubled. The Bulldogs would cap their scoring for the game in the seventh inning on Bobby Carlson's sacrifice fly to center field which platted Campbell, who had doubled.
Campbell was the offensive leader for the Zags as he went 2-for-3 with two doubles and three runs scored.
Sophomore Chris Albrecht picked up his second save of the season for the Bulldogs as he allowed no runs on two hits in two innings of work. Kirk (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Quakers allowing three runs on four hits in five innings of work.
The Bulldogs will be back in action on Thursday against an opponent to be determined after the Fresno State University game Thursday night.
