Matadors checked at home, lose to Evansville

The Matadors (4-4) couldn’t get any offense going and were shut out, 3-0, by Evansville (2-4) Tuesday at Matador Diamond.

In the first inning, Evansville got it going after outfielder Greg Wallace got on base with a single and then took home after CSUN picked off Andy Pascoe from first base.’ ‘

Then, after base hits by Purple Aces third baseman Cody Fick and outfielder Nate Smith, shortstop Peter Tountas came up to the plate and batted in Fick with a base-hit RBI.

Evansville’s other run came in the third inning when Fick got hit by a pitch and took second base on a passed ball. He then stole third and also managed to steal home in a defensive breakdown from the Matadors.

On the mound for CSUN was pitcher Bryan Harper. The freshmen left hander didn’t have a stellar day as he gave up three earned runs and struck out only three batters.’

Three runs shouldn’t have been a problem for this Matadors lineup that’s had no problem scoring runs this season, but the bats were quiet against Evansville.’ ‘

CSUN outfielder Richard Cates kept his solid production at the plate going 3-for-4 in the first home loss of the year for the Matadors.

Another bright spot for the Matadors was the relief-pitching of P.J. Rousey and Brian Slover, who switched from designated batter to pitcher in the eighth inning.

Rousey and Slover had two strikeouts each in their three innings of relief duty.

CSUN will host Evansville again in the final game of this two-game series today at 2 p.m.
