Michael McGreevy pitched a three-hit, no-walk shutout as UCSB won its fifth straight Big West Conference baseball game with a 3-0 victory at Hawaii.
McGreevy faced just two batters over the minimum and struck out 10 batters in a game that took only two hours and nine minutes. He improved his win-loss record to 4-0 and lowered his earned run average to 2.42.
The Gauchos (16-7, 7-2 Big West Conference) broke up a scoreless pitcher’s duel between McGreevy and Hawaii’s Aaron Davenport in the sixth inning. Cole Cummings reached safely on an infield single with one out and took third with two outs on a single by Broc Mortensen.
Mortensen stole second base and Zach Rodriguez followed with a two-run single to left-centerfield.
Rodriguez, a freshman outfielder, extended his hitting streak to 12 games while going 2-for-4. He improved his batting average to a team-best .433.
Bryce Willits started the Gauchos’ final rally in the ninth when he hit his second single of the game. After a walk to Christian Kirtley and a double-steal, Michael Marsh hit a run-scoring, infield single to increase UCSB’s lead to 3-0.
Hawaii (11-8, 3-6) will play host to UCSB in a double-header today and a single game on Sunday.
