Baseball Team Gets Rocked

    UCSD baseball had a difficult time on the road Tuesday, falling 12-3 to Chapman College.

    The game was an offensive slugfest. The two schools hit a combined five home runs in the first three innings. Chapman finished with 15 hits to go with their 12 runs.

    The contest was tied at one at the end of the first inning. In the second inning, the Panthers took the lead after five of their players made trips across home plate. The Panthers cruised from there.

    The winning pitcher was Chapman’s Gary Van Matre, who struck out four in 2 2-3 innings. The losing pitcher was the Tritons’ Raf Bergstrom, who allowed six runs in 2 2-3 innings.

    UCSD’s David Hawke had two hits, one RBI and one run scored.

    The now 5-6 Tritons are home this weekend to play San Francisco State. The series starts with a game at 2:30 p.m. Friday. The first game of Saturday’s doubleheader begins at noon, and the series closes with a game Sunday at noon.
