Fullerton halts Lobo baseball team

FULLERTON, Calif. — The University of New Mexico baseball team proved again Sunday it could match up with seventh-ranked Cal State Fullerton. Beating the Titans was another matter.

Luis Gonzalez pitched seven strong innings and went 2-for-4 at the plate but it wasn’t enough as Cal State Fullerton took a 1-0 victory to sweep the three-game series. All three games were decided by one run.

UNM (11-8) could not solve Fullerton starter John Gavin, who allowed just Gonzalez’s two hits and struck out 14 in eight innings. Blake Workman worked a 1-2-3 ninth for the save.

Lobo coach Ray Birmingham said there was a silver lining to playing a high-caliber team such as the Titans so close.

“First, I hate losing three, but it was a very promising weekend,” Birmingham said. “What I saw was encouraging for the rest of the season.”
