UCSB wins fourth straight to complete 6-3 homestand in baseball

Published On: Mar 04 2013 09:34:39 PM CST

Gauchos score three times in the 5th and three more in the 6th as they whip Gaels 10-1 in college baseball.


Luke Swenson's two-run double in the fifth inning opened up the flood gates in a 10-1 UCSB victory over St. Mary's. The Gauchos are riding a four-game winning streak as they complete a 6-3 homestand.

Swenson's opposite field double scored Brandon Trinkwon and Tyler Kuresa to snap a 1-1 tie. Swenson, who took third on an error by the left fielder, scored on a perfect squeeze bunt by Ryan Clark putting UCSB up 4-1.

The Gauchos scored three more in the sixth inning on a bases-loaded double by Kuresa. That was more than enough run support for freshman Kenny Chapman who worked six innings of three-hit ball allowing just one run.

UCSB is now 8-4 on the year and will play a three-game series at the University of Texas beginning Friday.
