UCSB Finishes Texas State Series with Loss, Tie

The UC Santa Barbara baseball team lost the first game of a Sunday doubleheader against Texas State 6-5 and ended up with a 4-4 tie in the nightcap at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium. The twin bill was forced by a rainout of Saturday's scheduled contest, and the finale of the series was called early due to a travel curfew for the visiting Bobcats. 

With the loss and draw, UCSB dropped to 4-9-1 on the season. Texas State, meanwhile, improved to 9-4-1 while remaining unbeaten in seven straight. 

With four hits in nine at-bats combined over the two games, redshirt junior DH Clay Fisher was the Gauchos' top offensive performer on Sunday. Redshirt freshman shortstop Andrew Martinez had a standout day with the bat as well, launching his second homer of the year, doubling, and reaching five times as part of a 2-5 day. 

The Gauchos continue a 21-of-22 homestand next week with a Wednesday contest against Dartmouth and a three-game series with Sacramento State starting on Friday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
