Baseball team wins home opener

Greg Fujii hit a walk-off double to lift the Cal State Monterey Bay baseball team to a 7-6 victory over Biola University in the Otters home opener on Thursday.

CSUMB held a 6-5 lead entering the top of the ninth inning. A single, a walk and an error allowed the Eagles to load the bases; another walk scored the tying run.

Tyler Young led off the ninth inning with a single to right field and advanced to second on a wild pitch to set up Fujii’s game-winning hit.

CSUMB improved to 1-3.

First baseman Tyler Soto had a game-high three hits. Ronnie Fhurong and Young added two hits apiece.

Scott Tully threw seven innings, giving up eight hits and only one earned run. Jake Paolinetti recorded the win with two innings of relief, allowing two runs.

“It is nice to get our first win in front of our home crowd,” said first-year head coach Walt White. “I envision our program as something our university can be proud of and today is a great start. We took one step closer to where we want to be as a program.”
