SURPRISE, Ariz. - The Air Force baseball team dropped a 5-0 contest to Cal State Bakersfield Saturday afternoon at the Coca-Cola Classic at the Surprise Sports Complex. The loss dropped the Falcons to 4-6 and improved the Roadrunners to 10-2.
Left-hander Jonathan Montoya (2-0) held the Falcons to seven hits, while fanning nine, in the complete-game shutout. It was CSUB’s second-consecutive shutout.
The Falcons squandered a solid start from right-hander Sean Carley (0-2). The sophomore held the Runners to five runs, four earned, on seven hits in seven innings pitched. Stephen Colangelo also pitched a scoreless eighth inning for the Falcons, striking out two.
