Ti­tans face win-or-go-home game

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS -

Cal State Fuller­ton loses to Louisville, 9-3, to even its su­per re­gional at one game apiece.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Danny Rosenbaum had four hits, Corey Ray and Lo­gan Tay­lor each had three hits and three runs bat­ted in and Louisville beat Cal State Fuller­ton, 9-3, on Sun­day to even the best-of-three su­per re­gional at a game apiece.

The third game is Mon- day night with a trip to the Col­lege World Se­ries at stake.

The Car­di­nals had 16 hits for more than enough of­fense for fresh­man starter Bren­dan McKay (9-3). The left-han­der gave up two earned runs and eight hits while walk­ing two and strik­ing out nine in seven innings for Louisville (47-17), the No. 3 over­all seed in the NCAA tour­na­ment.

“They came out and they at­tacked pretty good, [and] McKay was as good as ad­ver­tised,” Fuller­ton Coach Rick Van­der­hook said.

Fuller­ton starter John Gavin (7-3) took the loss. The fresh­man left-han­der gave up two earned runs and five hits while walk­ing one and strik­ing out two in 21⁄ in

3 nings.

“I thought John Gavin got caught way up in it,” Van­der­hook said. “He just couldn’t do much early, then they took ad­van­tage of a lot of things.

“I think his tail’s prob­a­bly be­tween his legs, let’s be hon­est, he didn’t get out of the third in­ning. He was tired, he was rac­ing, he had no com­mand, those aren’t the things that mix very well.”

David Olmedo-Bar­rera led the Ti­tans (38-23) with three hits.

Louisville broke the game open with a four-run sixth in­ning that made it 6-1. Ray added a two-run sin­gle in the eighth.
