Fresno State will aim to snap a four-game losing streak Tuesday night at Beiden Field, but it likely won't be easy.
Unbeaten USC comes to Beiden Field riding its best start since 1988 at 8-0, including a victory at Cal State Fullerton last week in the Trojans' only road game so far. Clovis High alum Blake Lacey has started every game for USC at third base and is hitting .367 with seven RBIs.
The Bulldogs (3-4) were swept at Nevada in a Mountain West Conference-opening over the weekend despite hitting .300 as a team. Taylor Ward had seven RBIs in the series and one double in each of the three games while Taylor Tempel went 5 for 10, including two doubles, and Manny Argomaniz had four doubles, giving him a conference-leading seven.
First pitch at Beiden, where the Bulldogs are 3-1, is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
