Senior right-hander Nick Hudson tossed eight innings to lead the Cal State East Bay baseball team to a 6-4 win over visiting Hawaii Pacific. The Pioneers (7-6) snap their three-game losing streak, while handing the Sea Warriors (8-2) only their second defeat of the season.
Hudson (3-1) scattered eight hits and allowed one earned run in his eight innings of work. The Benicia native struck out four and didn't walk a batter en route to his third victory of 2014. He came out of the game with a 6-1 lead in the top of the ninth. HPU made it interesting against reliever Michael Pope in the final frame, but the junior was able to escape a jam to secure the win.
HPU out-hit the Pioneers 12 to 8 for the game, although the Sea Warriors issued three walks and the Pioneers didn't walk anyone. Alexander finished 2-for-3 with a base on balls and three RBI. Stephney and Starnes each reached base twice on a hit and a walk. Kochan scored a pair of runs out the leadoff spot.
