SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - No. 30 Cal State Fullerton scored four times in the third inning and Titan right-hander Jason Windsor pitched a complete game shutout as UC Santa Barbara fell to Fullerton 8-0 in game one of this weekend's three game Big West series. The loss was the fourth in the row for UCSB and drops its record to 23-16 and 1-6 in the Big West. The Titans improve to 24-17 and remain a perfect 7-0 in conference.
Windsor (4-4) completely shutdown a Gaucho offense that has scored 319 runs in 38 previous games, limiting UCSB to just four hits while waling one. He struck out five and faced just two batters over the minimum.
Sophomore right-hander Michael Martin (8-3) suffered his third straight defeat after surrendering six runs (five earned) on nine hits over 5.2 innings.
Catcher Kurt Suzuki and shortstop Blake Davis each blasted home runs for the visiting Titans. CSF pounded out 14 hits against four Gaucho hurlers.
UCSB and Cal State Fullerton will resume their three-game Big West series Saturday at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium at 1 p.m. Right-hander Andy Graham will get the starting call for the Gauchos and southpaw Ricky Romero will take the ball for the Titans.
