Back on a Roll

The Spartan baseball team is back to their winning ways. Great arms and great sticks combined to dominate Dartmouth 19-0 in San Jose on Friday night to run the Spartans winning streak to 7 straight. With the win the Spartans improve to 16-3 on the season and have supplanted themselves as on of the top teams in the nation so far this year. SJSU started scoring in bunches early and didn't stop until the game was over. They were spurred on by a seven run 2nd inning, which was highlighted by Kyle Bellows' (picture right) first home run of the season, a two out grand slam to straightaway center field. The Spartans finished with 27 hits on the night, which surprisingly isn't even their highest single game hit total this week (they collected 34 total hits in a 31-1 romping of Chicago State on Wednesday night).

On the mound, Max Peterson, the 6'2" left hander from San Diego (picture left) went 6.0 strong innings to improve his season record to 4-0. He struck out five, allowing three singles and no runs.

San Jose State concludes its current six-game homestand this week by hosting Fresno Pacific University on Sunday afternoon. First pitch is set for 2:00 p.m. at Municipal Stadium.
