About Last Series

Sacramento State took just one of four games over the weekend against the Pacific Tigers. The Hornets lost twice in Stockton, falling 11-3 and 6-3 on Thursday and Friday. After winning Saturday night's game at John Smith Field, 5-2, the Hornets dropped the series finale on Sunday.

Keith Torres led the team offensively, hitting .353 with three extra base hits in the four game series. Martin Vincelli-Simard hit his and the team's first home run of the year, a solo shot on Saturday, and drove in a team-high four in the series. 

On the mound, Scott Randall picked up the team's one win, throwing seven innings of one-run ball on Saturday. Behind him, Travis Martizia picked up his first career save and the team's first this year. 

K:BB Ratios

Sacramento State enters Tuesday's game at UC Davis with a 4.93 Strikeout-to-Walk ratio, the highest mark in the Western Athletic Conference and the 5th highest in all of NCAA Div. I baseball. As a staff, Sacramento State has struck out 69 batters while allowing just 14 walks. 

Senior reliever Tanner Dalton's 9.00 K:BB ratio (9:0) is the best on the team. Among the Hornets' starters, junior Austin Roberts' 7.50 K:BB ratio (15:2) is tops, though sophomore Scott Randall is right behind him at 7.00 (14:2).

No Free Passes

Sacramento State pitchers have issued just 14 total walks in 61.0 innings of work, good for a 2.07 Walks-Per-Nine. That number is the lowest in the WAC and the seventh lowest in all of NCAA Div. I baseball. 

In 2018, the Hornets finished with a 2.37 BB/9, the second lowest figure in the nation behind only the College of Charleston.

Tanner Dalton is just one of 58 qualified pitchers remaining across all Div. I baseball to have not walked a batter this season.

Torres Career Knocks

Infielder Keith Torres was 3-for-5 in Sacramento State's first game at Pacific last Thursday with two doubles, a run scored, and an RBI. The three hits in a single game was a career-high for Torres. In his freshman season, Torres had two hits in a game 17 times.
