Hudson Goes the Distance in Win over Otters
Cal State East Bay senior Nick Hudson tossed a complete game on April 11th to lead the Pioneer baseball team to a 6-2 win over visiting Cal State Monterey Bay in the opener of the four-game series between the two squads. The Pioneers (18-15, 12-13 CCAA) won their third in a row and banged out 11 hits, reaching double digits for the second straight game.
"We're playing good fundamental baseball right now," said head coach Bob Ralston after the game. "Guys were having good at bats today, executing bunts, making plays in the field, and Hudson was throwing strikes. We're just going to try to keep it going the rest of the weekend."
