Dante Palacios saved the Cal State Stanislaus baseball team from being shut out twice in the same weekend Sunday.
Palacios homered off San Bernardino's Matt Long in the Coyotes' 5-1 victory over the host Warriors (24-10, 14-6 CCAA) in a California Collegiate Athletic Association game. Long pitched a five-hitter and struck out 12 to give San Bernardino (15-18, 4-16 CCAA) a four-game series split.
