Davis, Calif. - Sophomores Gary Brown and Christian Colon homered and freshmen Noe and Nick Ramirez combined on a 6-hitter Sunday afternoon as Cal State Fullerton shut out UC Davis for the second day in a row with a 6-0 Big West Conference victory.
Noe went the first eight innings and allowed only four hits while walking one and striking out seven to improve to 5-1. Nick pitched the ninth inning as Fullerton won its sixth game in succession to improve to 29-11 overall, 9-6 in the Big West and 19-4 away from Goodwin Field.
UC Davis, which managed only one run and 15 hits in getting swept in the 3-game series, fell to 7-31 and 1-11. Jeremy McChesney went 6 1/3 innings for the Aggies and fell to 1-6.
Brown hit his second home run in two days and his third of the season to put the Titans ahead, 1-0, in the first inning. It was his third tie-breaking hit of the week which saw him go 10-for-21 with two home runs, two triples and two doubles. Colon hit his second homer of the series and fifth of the year to make it 2-0 in the third.
Khris Davis doubled home Jared Clark with two out in the sixth. Clark had been hit by a pitch. Jeff Newman manufactured a run in the seventh with a single, a sacrifice bunt, a ground ball and a wild pitch. The Titans scored twice more in the ninth. Joey Siddons had a bases-loaded sacrifice fly and Colon followed with an RBI hit.
The Aggies batted only four men over the minimum.
Fullerton hosts USC in a non-conference game Wednesday night and then hosts a 3-game series with UC Santa Barbara at Goodwin Field, where the Titans are only 10-7 this season.
