The Titans are still looking for their first win of the season after losing again yesterday in their home opener against Nevada, 2-0; bringing their overall record to 0-4 to start the regular season.
The majority of the game was dead even throughout, as nobody found their way on the scoreboard until the seventh inning. It was Nevada’s third baseman, Jaylon McLaughlin, who got the game’s first run thanks to his RBI triple to right field. The hit brought Nevada’s Weston Hatten in for the score, after he got into scoring position after an error and wild pitch from the Titans.
It was, McLaughlin again, now doing the scoring for Nevada’s second run two innings later, increasing the gap 2-0. The Titan’s were left with the bottom of the ninth to steal the win away and earned their first. In the bottom of the ninth however, the Titans went 1-2-3 with a popup, strikeout, and fly out to end the game.
Nevada’s Dalton Gomez got the win, shutting out the Titans for 8.0 innings while striking out five. As for Fullerton, they split the pitching duties among six different pitchers. Tanner Bibee started the game but only went for 2.0 innings, Tommy Wilson went for 2.0 as well. Erik Cha, Gavin Velasquez, Jimmy Endersby, and Brett Conine all went for an inning each with Velasquez getting the loss. Fullerton’s bullpen combined for 8 hits, 2 runs, 5 strikeouts, and allowing five walks.
Fullerton has plenty of oppurtunites to get their first win at home as the continue a five game home-stand in their next game. They’ll take on the Houston Cougars in a three-game series this weekend, beginning Friday at 7 pm PT at Goodwin Field.
