ROHNERT PARK — It was a day of missed opportunities for the Cal State Stanislaus baseball team, which stranded a total of 23 runners in Sunday's doubleheader sweep at the hands of Sonoma State.
Sonoma State (24-14, 16-12 California Collegiate Athletic Association) took the opener 10-1, then completed the twin bill sweep with a 5-2 victory over the Warriors (8-13, 5-27 CCAA) in the nightcap.
Stanislaus had 10 hits in the opener, but scored just one run after leaving 13 runners on base. The Warriors had eight hits in the second game, but stranded 10 more runners.
Skippy Ferreria was a bright spot for Stanislaus, going 3-for-4 in each game. Craig Beevers, Clint Brill and James Heller each had two hits in the first game for the Warriors.
Rafael Vasquez and Andrew Graham suffered the losses on the mound for Stanislaus.
Devon Zenn led the Seawolves going 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in the eighth inning of the opener. Sam Montgomery had four hits on the day for Sonoma State.
STRONG FINISH FOR STANISLAUS' MEZA Davina Meza won the only match of the day, in the Warriors' season finale, as Cal State Stanislaus dropped an 8-1 decision to No. 19 ranked UC San Diego.
Meza beat UCSD's top player, Melissa Breisacher, at No. 1 singles, 6-4, 6-2, to highlight the day for the Warriors, who finished the season 1-13.
Meza was a bright spot for a rebuilding Stanislaus program as the sophomore tallied a 15-7 overall record with a 10-4 dual play mark, all at No. 1 singles. She also won seven of her last 10 matches.
At No. 1 doubles, Meza and McKenzy Harden took Breisacher and Kyra Scott to 8-3 before losing.
