» Recap // Box Score // Photo Gallery

Long Beach State plated two late runs, including Colby Brenner’s run-scoring triple in the ninth inning, to defeat the University of Arizona baseball team, 3-2, in the opening game of a brief two-game series Tuesday night at Hi Corbett Field. Long Beach State (5-6) squandered a slim 1-0 lead by giving up lone runs in the sixth and seventh innings, but quickly answered to tie the game 2-2 in the eighth inning. Trailing by a run, the Dirtbags strung together three-consecutive one-out singles in the eighth. Freshman Garrett Hampson started the rally with a single to left field off right-hander Tyler Parmenter. Lefty Xavier Borde replaced Parmenter to face the left hand-hitting Michael Hill, who hit a seeing-eye single through the left side. Arizona (6-6) then brought in first baseman Bobby Dalbec, a right-hander, to face Richard Prigatano. The junior delivered another single through the left side to drive in Garrett with the tying run. An inning later, Colton Vaughn bounced a single up the middle, before Brenner tripled to the right field corner off Dalbec.
