            FULLERTON, Calif. ?- Cal State Fullerton’s Ryan Schreppel held the Arizona offense to just two runs on six hits over 8 2/3 innings and Sergio Pedroza hit a three-run homer in the fifth to help the Titans down the Wildcats 7-2 at Goodwin Field on Sunday.


The CSF victory forces a decisive final game between the two schools on Monday at 6 p.m. in the NCAA Regional. The Titans improved 44-16 on the year with the win, while Arizona fell to 39-20 overall with the loss.


            Schreppel (6-0), who missed seven weeks of the regular season with a knee injury, baffled the Arizona hitters throughout the night. The Titan left-hander struck out six, walked four, did not allow a leadoff hitter to reach base in all nine innings and retired nine straight hitters through the middle three frames.


            Leading 1-0 after four and half innings, Pedroza hit his three-run shot in the fifth to hand the Titans a commanding 4-0 lead. The three-run blast against UA capped off a redemptive day for the Titan right fielder, who helped keep CSF alive in the elimination game against Missouri earlier with a go-ahead two-run homer in the top ninth inning against the Tigers and a two-out, bases-loaded diving catch in the bottom half of the frame that ended the 8-6 game.


            Arizona’s Sean Rierson (3-3) was charged with the loss in the night cap after giving up six runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 innings of work.


Offensively, senior Jeff Van Houten accounted for Arizona’s two runs in the contest with a mammoth two-run homer over the scoreboard in left field in the sixth inning. The blast was his ninth of the year.
