Air Force Falls To San Diego State Friday
May 2, 2008
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Stephen Strasburg tossed a three-hit shutout as San Diego State rolled to a 15-0 win over Air Force in Mountain West Conference baseball action Friday afternoon at Falcon Field. The loss drops the Falcons to 16-26, 2-13 and improved the Aztecs to 26-21, 12-7.
Strasburg (7-1) struck out 11 and walked just one batter in his second-consecutive complete game outing. The righty has allowed just four hits and one run in his last two outings.
San Diego State took advantage of sloppy fielding by Air Force to jump out to an early lead. The Aztecs scored a run in the second and five in the third, all unearned runs, to take the early 6-0 lead. The Falcon committed four errors on the day, as cold, wet and windy conditions made fielding the ball difficult.
San Diego State had 19 hits in the game. Brandon Glover went 3-for-4 with three runs and four RBIs to lead the Aztecs. Troy Hanzawa and Erik Castro also had three hits for SDSU.
Falcon starter David Miller (2-5) took the loss, despite throwing well. In three innigs, Miller did not allow an earned run. Matt Barattino, Gregg Laswell and Jason Griggs also pitched in relief for the Falcons.
Air Force and San Diego State play game two of the three game series tomorrow, May 3, beginning at 1 p.m. MST.
