Gonzales Throws Another Complete-Game, Zags Sweep Lobos
April 3, 2011
SPOKANE, Wash. – Marco Gonzales did it again. For the third-straight start on the mound, the freshman pitched a complete-game to help the Gonzaga University baseball team beat the University of New Mexico 6-2 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Gonzales (4-2) struck out eight and allowed two runs on four hits. Cameron Edman registered a pair of hits, including a home run. Royce Bolinger also hit a home run, Billy Moon hit a double and Andy Hunter, Eric Lane and Tyler Chism hit singles. After recording a hit in the afternoon, Moon, Bolinger and Lane extend their hitting streaks to 11, nine and seven, respectively.
The Bulldogs, who swept UC Irvine in their home-opening series last weekend, remain perfect at the Patterson Baseball Complex with their sweep over the Lobos. They also have been unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 games.
New Mexico starter Rudy Jaramillo (2-3) held the Bulldogs hitless until the fifth inning. After two fly outs to right field to start the inning, Keegan Acker was hit by Jaramillo and advanced to third on Edman’s single up the middle. With Steven Halcomb at the plate, Edman attempted to steal second but was caught in a pickle but before he could be tagged out, second baseman Kyle Stiner’s made a throw to third base to pick off Acker but it was high and Acker scored the first run of the game on the error.
The Bulldogs got some insurance runs in the sixth inning. Chism singled on a bunt to the third baseman, Moon followed with a double to left center field and Bolinger hit a three-run homer to left field to give Gonzaga a 4-0 lead.
With two outs in the ninth, Gonzales lost the shutout after allowing a double and a home run to left center field. He would finish the game with a fly out to right field.
The Bulldogs host game two of their three-game season series with in-state rival Washington State University Tuesday at 6 p.m. The Cougars took game one last Tuesday 17-11 in Pullman, Wash.
