The baseball team has secured Sacramento State's Biggest Upset Award. The Hornets defeated the nation's 3rd-ranked team, UCLA Bruins, on the road by a 2-1 score on March 3. The loss was one of just four suffered by the Bruins at home during the entire regular season. The victory was Sacramento State's third over a top-five program in five years, which includes defeating fourth-ranked Oregon State in 2014 at Raley Field, and a 5-4 road win at fifth-ranked LSU in 2016.

A late home run by Steven Moretto and excellent outings from Travis Adams and Tanner Dalton lifted the Hornets to the win over UCLA. With the game tied at 1-1 in the top of the ninth inning, Moretto crushed a solo home run down the left field line which put the Hornets up for good. Adams, a freshman right-hander, got the start for the Hornets and threw five innings, allowing just one run on four hits. He struck out six and did not walk a batter. Dalton, a senior, picked up the win throwing four shutout innings of relief.

Sacramento State scored in the first inning on a Martin Vincelli-Simard RBI-single. With two outs, Matt Smith singled, stole second, and scored on the Vincelli-Simard knock.

It marked the first of two victories over nationally ranked opposition for the Hornets during the season, including a 6-4 win against 19th-ranked UC Santa Barbara at the NCAA Regionals.
