TURLOCK -- A near-record first inning allowed No. 12 Cal State Stanislaus to finish its fifth consecutive baseball series victory and extend its winning streak to five games with a 14-9 win over Cal State Monterey Bay on Sunday at Warrior Field.
It was the second California Collegiate Athletic Association sweep for the Warriors (21-5, 14-2 CCAA) this season after sweeping San Francisco State in February and their fourth CCAA series victory in a row.
Thanks in large part to eight walks, Stanislaus scored 11 runs in the bottom of the first inning, two runs short of the record 13 scored in one inning against Menlo in 1988. The first seven batters reached base, six via walks issued by Adam Lanthier of the Otters (7-16, 5-11).
Following a strikeout and sacrifice fly, three consecutive hits, including a double by David Contreras and a triple by Dennis Wolfe, a hit batsmen and a single by Jake Oketani gave the Warriors an 11-0 lead.
