SAN JOSE, Calif. - With sophomore Andy Graham's second straight solid start, the UC Santa Barbara baseball team won its second consecutive series on Sunday in a 6-1 victory over San Jose State.
The righthander tossed seven innings tallying five strike outs. Graham gave up just six hits and improved his record to 2-0.
The story of the game might have been the leadoff hitters. San Jose State failed to get a leadoff man on base until the ninth inning. The Gauchos (4-2), on the other hand, had their leadoff hitter on base in seven of the nine innings en route to taking two-out-of-three from the Spartans.
The Spartans used four pitchers in the game, no one pitching more than three innings. Daniel Crombie fared the best of the four. He pitched the last three innings of the game, striking out three and giving up no runs.
San Jose State (3-4) scored its only run in the bottom of the sixth. First baseman Brandon Fromm singled in Sam Hall.
Gaucho skipper Bob Brontsema inked career victory no. 300 Sunday's 6-1 win over the Spartans. The UCSB alum is in his 12 year as head coach of the Gauchos and now owns an overall record of 300-292.
UCSB returns home on Tuesday, February 15 to take on cross-town rival Westmont at Caesar Uyesaka Statium. The game is slated to begin at 2:00 pm.
