Michael Hostetler drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI single down the right-field line in the seventh inning as the Fresno Pacific baseball team rallied for a 7-4 nonconference victory at San Francisco State on Friday.
The Sunbirds (7-2) scored twice in both the seventh and eighth innings to win the series opener. Michael Tittle went 3 for 5 with two RBIs and John Koretoff and Hostetler each added two hits and an RBI.
Jake Martinez (2-0) gave up all four runs by the Gators (2-6) in the third, but he blanked them after that before departing after six innings. Elian Raeber, Kyle Rasmussen and Tanner Irwin closed it out, Irwin earning his second save.
The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday starting at 11 a.m. at Maloney Field,
