FULLERTON, Calif. – For the first time since 2013, Cal State Fullerton swept the six-game season series against Long Beach State with the 6-1 victory Saturday afternoon at Goodwin Field.

Jordan Hernandez broke the game open for the Titans in the bottom of the fourth inning on a base clearing double to record a career-high three RBI.
Zach Lew hit a double down the left field line to start the fourth inning and get the Titans on the board. The freshman had a great series against Long Beach, going 5-for-9 at the plate with an RBI in each game and four runs.
