HOUSTON -- Seventh-ranked Cal. State Fullerton exploded for 15 runs on 13 hits against nine Rice pitchers to claim a 15-4 win in the finale of the three-game series Sunday afternoon at Reckling Park.
The Owls won the weekend series with victories in the first two games by holding the Titan offense to a combined four runs on nine hits. The CSF bats came alive Sunday, tallying the most runs and hits allowed by the Rice pitching staff this season.
The Titans jumped on the scoredboard for four runs on one hit in the top of the fourth inning. The Owls allowed three walks and had two wild pitches. The big blow was a three-run home run to right field by Blake Davis.
Rice chipped away for run in the bottom of the fourth on the first home run of the year by sophomore Joe Savery. Fullerton came right back with runs in the fifth and sixth to go up 6-1. The Owls added one run on a two-out double by Chad Lembeck and RBI single by Brian Friday, but the Titans responded with two in the seventh, four in the fourth and three in the top of the ninth.
Lembeck finished with a career-high three base hits. Savery and Friday collected two each to account for seven of the Owls' nine hits on the day. Freshman Bryan Price was the Rice pitcher of record in his second career start.
The Owls also tied a season high with four defensive errors. Rice fell to 13-3 on the season as its eight-game win streak came to an end. The Titans improved to 10-6 on the season.
