THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – The California Lutheran baseball team used a five-run inning as the Kingsmen took down the Rutgers-Newark Scarlet Raiders 5-1 Monday afternoon at Ullman Stadium.
The Kingsmen have now won three straight games and are 11-9. They have now won three straight games twice this year. With the loss, Rutgers-Newark is now 4-4.
Troy Frazier started on the mound for the Kingsmen. He pitched 5.0 innings, struck out five batters and only allowed four hits. He got the win and improved to 2-0.
Justin Fong, Sal Johnson and Mason Snodgrass each pitched hitless inning. Johnson and Snodgrass both struck out two batters during their inning. Kevin Baranowski pitched the final inning for the Kingsmen.
