Game Notes: Pacific
Pacific heads to Sacramento State to start this week. Last year, the Tigers defeated the Hornets in both their matchups, winning 6-3 at home and 9-6 on the road. The Tigers hold the all-time series edge at 63-62 but have won three straight and are 14-9 against Sacramento State since 2005.
After that Tuesday matchup, Pacific will head to Los Angeles to play LMU. The Lions are currently fourth in the WCC at 4-2, with an overall record of 13-10. LMU won the series last year two games to one and holds the all-time edge 14-9. The last series win over LMU for Pacific came in 1968, when the Tigers won both games of the two-game matchup.
Pacific-Sacramento State will be at 6:00 pm Tuesday. The LMU series begins Friday at 6:00 pm, with game two on Saturday at 6:00 pm and game three Sunday at 1:00 pm.
Last Time Out
The Tigers took their first WCC series win of the year this weekend, winning two of three over Pepperdine. Pacific was 3-1 overall on the week thanks to a Tuesday victory over San Jose State as well. The Tigers launched seven homers in those four games, almost doubling their total for the year. Danny Mayer and James Free II both went long twice, while Ryan Schalch added the first of his career and Blake Barry had his first this season.
Schalch picked up his first career save at well, finishing out the win over San Jose State. Vince Arobio earned his 19th career save on Sunday, giving him sole possession of the Pacific career record. Arobio has four saves in five chances this year.
