"Starting pticher Mark Seyler pitched well today but it was his first loss against four wins and we don't depend on him to strikeout every person in every game but he did what he was supposed to do and our defense didn't play well behind him. said Martinez.

    For the Aztecs at 15-5 Andrew Brown went 1 for 4 with a single, a run scored and a rbi, Chase Calabuig went 1 for 2 with a double and 1 rbi. " Chase is a freshman and riding a good hitting streak is learning the ropes from every at bat and he deserves a spot in our lineup." stated Mark Martinez. "We expect relief pitcher C J Saylor not to give up 2 runs in the top of the eighth that is very ridiculous he is our closer he came in and pitched very soft."

    Corey Taylor is the winner for the Texas Tech Red Raiders at 14-5 as he pitched 4 innings gave up 2 hits 1 run 2 walks 5 strikeouts and teammate Dominic Moreno records his 3rd save. Mark Seyler is the loser at 4-1 as his 4 game winning streak on the mound for the San Diego State Aztecs at 15-5
