Hornets (4-2) sweep Texas State (3-5) this weekend. The series with Pacific was scrubbed and the Hornets were able to fly TSU into town instead.

Saturday, Game 1: 8-4. Randall gave up 1 run over 5 innings and got hit 1st win of the season. Hornet bats wake up with Bacho, Doyle, and Bollengier with multi-hit games and 5 RBIs between the 3 of them.

Saturday, Game 2: 5-4: A back and forth game that saw the Hornets take advantage of some Bobcat fielding errors that were ultimately the difference. The Hornet bullpen went 4 innings without an earned run. Churby got the save with the tying run 90 feet away and striking out back to back batters to end the game.

Sunday: 7-1. Saul pitched a gem and gave up 1 run over 6 innings and striking out 4. Hornets tacked on a run here and there until their bats erupted in the 8th to seal the win. A solo HR by Vincelli-Simard that landed in the 2nd deck of the parking garage and a 2 run shot by Zeidman a few batters later finished the scoring.

Hornets host Pacific (3-1) for a Monday night tilt at the John.

Hornets (5-2) come from behind and get the 8-4 win over Pacific (3-2). Tinsley had a rough start but the Hornet bullpen picks him up and only allows 1 run over 6 innings. Zalasky gets the win and Churby gets his 3rd save.

A back and forth game until the Hornets blew it open with a 4 run 7th. A 2 out rally in the 7th consisted of 3 back to back hits by Gonzalez, Bacho, and Bojorquez followed by a fielding error to give the Hornets the lead.

Hornets have a 4 game series this weekend at Santa Clara (2-5).

Hornets (21-7, 13-3 WAC) take 3 of 4 from visiting New Mexico State (11-17, 9-7 WAC) to stay tied atop the WAC.

Friday, Game 1: 10-5 win. NMSU jumped on top early y 4 runs but the Hornets rallied for the win. Randall went 6 innings and 11 K’s in the win. Walstad started the rally with a solo HR in the 4th and Torres tied the game with a 3 run HR later that inning. Bacho accounted for 3 RBIs on the day.

Friday, Game 2: 2-10 loss. Saul has another horrid outing and gave up 6 runs in 2.2 inning of work. Hornet bats were quiet with the exception of a Moretto solo HR in the 5th.

Saturday: 9-6 win. Adams picked up the win and went 6 innings with 8 K’s of 1 run ball in this gem. Smith went 2/4 with a 2 run HR and 4 RBIs on the day. Walstad went 2/3 with a double a HR for 3 RBIs on the day. NMSU mounted a furious 9th inning rally that scored 5 runs but fell short.

Sunday: 4-0 win. Rodriguez (5th win) gave up just 3 hits in 5 innings of work with Zalasky and Churby joining in on the shutout. Moretto’s 3 run HR in the 2nd was enough to lift the Hornets to another win.

Hornets host Seattle (10-16, 4-8 WAC) for a 4 games series this weekend.

The Hornets (22-10, 14-6 WAC) get shutout in the first 3 games of the series but avoid the sweep against Seattle (13-7, 7-9, WAC). The series will likely cost the Hornets a shot at the regular season title.

Friday: 0-6 loss. The Hornet only manage 3 hits as Randall gave up 4 runs in 7.1 innings of work. Seattle’s Mazzone hit 2, 2 run HRs.

Saturday, Game 1: 0-3 loss. Seattle wins a pitching duel in extra innings. Hornets couldn’t come through in their half of the 8th.

Saturday, Game 2: 0-5 loss. The Hornets only manage 4 hits as Martizia gets banged up as Seattle blew the game open in the 6th.

Sunday: 11-4 win. The Hornet bats get back on track and rack up 11 runs on 15 hits including 3 doubles and a solo HR from Gonzalez in a come from behind win. The Hornet bullpen held solid after a bumpy 3rd and 4th inning. Haynes earned his first win of his career.

Hornets head to Greeley to face cellar dweller Northern Colorado (7-22, 3-13 WAC). Hornets will need a sweep to keep pace with the WAC leaders.

Friday: 4-2 win. Randall pitched a strong 8+ innings and got 14 K’s. Zalasky came in the 9th with a bases loaded and no out jam and struck out the side for his 2nd save on the year. Solo HRs by Bacho and Vincelli-Simard in the 6th were the difference.

Saturday, Game 1: 6-8 loss. Rodriguez got crushed for 7 runs in 1.1 inning of work. Hornet bats couldn’t come up with clutch hits with RISP.

Saturday, Game 2: 10-1 win. Adams strikes out 13 in 7.2 innings. Hornets rack up 10 runs on mostly station to station baseball.

Sunday: 11-13 loss. Hornet pitching completely implodes as a late Hornet rally fell short. Hornets stranded 19 baserunners in the loss. Matt Smith became the all-time Hornet hits leader with a single in the 3rd.

Hornets have a 2 game mid-week series at Kansas (22-18, 3-11 B12) starting tomorrow.

Hornets (25-13, 16-8 WAC) split the series at Kansas (23-19, 3-11 B12).

Wednesday, 4-6 loss. Hornets jumped out to an early lead, but Kansas took the lead for good on a 2 run HR off of Martizia in the 7th. Vincelli-Simard hit his 5th HR of the year.

Hornets host GCU (23-15-1, 16-4 WAC) who is coming in as winners of 9 of their last 10 and looking to chase down CBU for the regular season title. The Lopes have not played since Wednesday of last week.

The Hornets (26-16, 17-11 WAC) got roughed up by Grand Canyon (26-16-1, 19-5 WAC) and lost 3 of 4 at the John this past weekend.

Friday: 5-15 loss. Hornets got on the board early but Adams got tagged for 9 earned runs in 4 innings. Tinsley came in and did no better, giving up 6 earned runs in 3 innings. GCU hit 5 HRs in the game that scored 12 of the 15 runs.

Saturday, Game 1: 1-6 loss. Hornet pitching faired a little better with Haynes and Tremain on the mound. However a GCU 3 run HR in the 5th blew the game wide open as the Hornet bats were kept in check.

Saturday, Game 2: 0-12 loss. Hornets get shutout as all the GCU damage was done in the early innings. Saul gave up 9 runs (6 earned) in 1.2 innings of work. Harper was the lone bright spot giving up only 1 earned run in 5 innings of relief.

Sunday, 3-2 win. Hornets salvage the weekend with a win in a pitching duel with Randall getting the start. Walstad knocked in all 3 Hornet runs including a 2 run walk off double in the bottom of the 9th.

Hornets have another brutal series ahead as they head to Riverside to face WAC leading Cal Baptist (29-11, 21-3 WAC) who is on a 10 game winning streak.
