TURLOCK -- Jessica Gaumnitz won her seventh start in a row as the host Cal State Stanislaus softball team split a pair of games Friday in the Tournament of Champions.
Gaumnitz blanked Hawaii Pacific 1-0 at Pedretti Park after the Warriors (16-16) had started pool play with a 3-1 loss to Grand Canyon earlier in the day.
Gaumnitz allowed just four hits and fanned seven in improving her record to 10-4.
In the Stanislaus first inning, Casey Stephenson's single scored Britney Borba for the only run of the game. Borba had walked and stolen second to start the rally.
Hawaii Pacific (25-2) had two runners on in the sixth, but Gaumnitz got a pop-up and a strikeout to end the inning.
Against Grand Canyon, pitcher Jen Arnold gave Stanislaus a 1-0 lead with a second-inning homer.
But Grand Canyon rallied off Arnold with two in the fifth and one more in the sixth on a Yasmeen Watkins home run.
The Warriors continue pool play today with games against Chaminade (1:30 p.m.) and Dixie State (3:45 p.m.).
The tournament is presented by Mizuno.
CS STANISLAUS 5, CS SAN BERNARDINO 4, at Turlock -- Jacob Thelen doubled to right-center field to score pinch runner Tomas Donnelly with one out in the the ninth as the Warriors took Game 1 of the four-game set.
The No. 26-ranked Warriors improved to 23-8 overall, 15-2 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. Stanislaus is 11-2 in one-run games and is 18-3 at home this season.
San Bernardino (13-17, 4-13) had two on with one out in the eighth, but reliever Josh Lewis -- who took over from starter Andrew Stueve -- fanned Chris Olson and Andrew DeMott came on to fan Justin Watson to the end inning.
Jeff Hughes led off the Stanislaus ninth with a single up the middle. Donnelly pinch-ran for Hughes and after a Tom Long sacrifice bunt moved Donnelly to second, Thelen delivered the game-winner.
It was Stanislaus' 12th last-at-bat victory this season. The Warriors have won six straight -- and 11 of their last 12 -- CCAA games.
Thelen finished the game 3-for-4 and Kyle Loretelli doubled in two runs in the first to give CSUS an early 2-1 lead.
The same two teams square off today in an 11 a.m. doubleheader.

MODESTO JC, at San Mateo -- The MJC men's 4x100-meter relay team of Terrence Green, Stanley Arukwe, Mike Barber, and Tirell Sain won in 41.28 seconds at the Bob Rush Invitational, in what coach Demetrius Snaer called "a breakout performance."
According to Snaer, that time is the fastest in Northern California, second fastest in the state and sixth fastest in the nation.
Snaer said Sain has been out of school for two years and had planned to redshirt this season, but was running so well and was in such good shape he decided to come out.
Snaer expected they could hit 41.7 -- the 41.28 was a surprise.
Remington Blair remained unbeaten in the 400, winning in 47.75 -- he ranks first in the state and fourth in the nation. The men's 4x400 meter relay, ranked No. 5 in the nation, won in 3:15.11.
The MJC women's 4x100-meter relay team of Brittany Jackson, Brittnie Cooksey, Ashley Taylor and Crystal Dorsey ran a season-best 48.53 -- San Francisco State won, with MJC in third just .02 seconds behind runner-up Sacracmento City. Taylor was second in the 400 in 58.00.
