Big Sky Standings
SACRAMENTO -- Savanna Corr threw a four-hit shutout and Shea Graves blasted a two-run homer to lead Sacramento State to a 3-0 victory over Portland State in the finale of a three-game series on Saturday afternoon at Shea Stadium.
It was Senior Day, and Nene Alas, Krystal Aubert, Sydney Rasmussen, Savanna Corr and Sydnee Strong were each honored prior to the game. All five seniors contributed to the win as Corr tossed the shutout while Alas, Strong, Aubert and Rasmussen all had hits.
With the win, the Hornets improved to 28-20 overall and 9-5 in Big Sky Conference. Sacramento State remains in second place in the conference standings, sitting two games ahead of third-place Portland State (18-27, 7-7). The Vikings won the first two games of the series yesterday. Only three conference games remain in the regular season for both teams. Weber State (12-1) has already clinched this year's Big Sky regular season title.
Though today was Senior Day, Sacramento State still has plenty of home games remaining, including Tuesday vs. UC Davis at 3 p.m., followed by hosting the Big Sky Tournament on May 8-11.
In today's victory, Corr needed 105 pitches to throw her seventh shutout of the year. In addition, she improved to 18-10 while lowering her ERA to 2.21. The 18 victories are tied for the seventh best mark in Sacramento State's Div. I era (1990-pres.). Corr worked out of some trouble in the second and seventh innings, stranding multiple runners aboard in each frame.
Meanwhile, all the Hornet runs were provided in the fourth inning on an RBI-double from Aubert which scored Suzy Brookshire, followed later in the inning by Graves' home run to left field. The round tripper was the fourth of the season for the true freshman, as the ball just stayed fair down the left field line.
Sacramento State had other chances to score, but stranded at least one runner on base in every inning but the third. Brookshire and Strong were both 2-for-3, while Graves finished 1-for-2 with a walk and the home run, and Aubert was 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Alas, Rasmussen, Brianna Bowers and Katie Vretzos also had hits as the 10 hits marked the 16th time the Hornets have connected for double-figure hits in a game.
Next week marks the end of the regular season and the Hornets will play at home on Tuesday, followed by a three-game series on the road Friday and Saturday at Idaho State.
