Men’s baseball wins series versus San Marcos

The Sonoma State Seawolves baseball team won their last game 4-2 making them 3-1 in their season series against the San Marcos Cougars.

The Seawolves played their home series against San Marcos on the Santa Rosa Junior College turf fields due to poor field conditions at the Seawolf Diamond. The rain has been relentless and a big obstacle for the Seawolves to overcome this season. 

Sonoma State baseball is now 6-7 in conference games this season. Winning this series was important for the Seawolves after getting swept the previous weekend by the UC San Diego King Tritons. 

The Seawolves baseball team came out with fresh attitudes, an unstoppable desire to win and something to prove.  

The final game against San Marcos was suspended and only 7 of the 9 innings were played; making the game low scoring and quite suspenseful for the fans.

In the last game against San Marcos’ Sir Gomez was the starting pitcher for the Seawolves and only gave up one run in his four innings against the Cougars. Matt Remmel was awarded the win after facing one batter and Tyson Canfield was awarded with the save after going one inning.

Remmel said, “Winning this series was huge for us after a bad series against UC San Diego and it gives us momentum going into next weekend” Remmel continued his statement when he said, “We have made some good strides as a team.”

The Seawolves defense did an excellent job at holding the Cougars to only two runs the entire game, allowing the Seawolves to piece together enough runs for a win.

Number 27 Matt Hill came out swinging in the last game and hit a bomb for his first home run of the season over the right field fence.

When Hill was asked about his focus at the plate he said, “In my at-bats in our last game I felt like I was seeing the ball really well and was trying to get a pitch I can handle and put a good swing on”

Senior on the team Joshua Lenney was a stand-out player offensively for the Seawolves. Lenney went 3-5 in his at bats against the Cougars, resulting in three game defining RBIs. It is safe to say that without Lenney’s consistent swings the game could have gone quite differently for the Seawolves in their final game against San Marcos.

The Seawolves next series will be away games against the Cal State Dominguez Hills Toros in Carson, CA on March 15-17.

“For preparation I think we mainly just need to take care of the little details, especially since it has been raining so much we haven’t had much time on the field,” Joshua Lenney said

The Sonoma State Seawolves baseball team will have their next home series on the weekend of March 22-24 against the Cal Poly Pomona Mustangs. For further dates and scores go to sonomaseawolves.com.
