Second baseman Ryan Raslowsky extended his hitting streak as CSUN baseball completed a four-game series sweep of the Seattle University Redhawks after a 7-3 victory at Bannerwood Park.

This was the Matador’s first four-game series sweep on the road since 2010, as they’re now 8-1 to start off the season.

Raslowsky extended his hitting streak to nine games with a third-inning double to right field and going one-for-three with two runs scored and an RBI.

Center fielder Justin Toerner and catcher Dylan Alexander each recorded two hits, as they combined for three runs scored.

Toerner hit a two-run double in the second inning to give CSUN an early 2-0 lead.

The Matadors broke open the game in the top of the 6th inning after right fielder Chester Pak hit an RBI infield single. Raslowsky had a sacrifice fly RBI and Pak scored on a wild pitch later in the inning to give CSUN a demanding 7-2 lead.

Starting pitcher Angel Rodriguez received a no decision as he pitched 4.1 innings, giving up two earned runs and striking out two.

Relief pitcher Brandon Warner earned his first win of the season after throwing 3.1 innings, allowing only two hits and giving up one unearned run.

Relief pitcher Joey Deceglie recorded his first save of the season.

The CSUN offense has combined for 15 runs and 25 hits in their last two games.

CSUN Baseball returns home to take on the Grand Canyon University Antelopes at Matador Field Tuesday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m.
