Special Games to draw 6,500 Athletes, volunteers will converge for 28th annual event ELIZABETH MUÑOZ Daily Titan

silent film. Sound effects were added to the final cut later on during post production.

In 1986, a group of Cal State Fullerton students decided to create an on-campus event entirely dedicated to developmentally disabled and special-needs students from schools across Orange County. It started off as an ambitious group idea that brought in 90 students with conditions such as Down syndrome, autism and other physical and mental disabilities in its first year. Almost three decades later, it is known as the CSUF Kathleen E. Faley Memorial Special Games. Early Friday morning, students and volunteers will gather on the athletic fields north of the Titan Gym to celebrate a day of non-competitiveness and community spirit. The Special Games has grown into the most extensive and inclusive event of its kind held in the county. It is expected to host 2,500 special athletes and more than 4,000 volunteers. Jack Faley is the father of Dan and Kathleen Faley, who helped organize the inaugural games. He remains actively involved in the coordination of the event every year. “It’s a good thing for the disabled kids,” Faley said. “Once a year, this is something that they look forward to, many of them.” Kathleen Faley died in a car accident one year after the initial launch of the project. On the third anniversary of the Games, they were memorialized in her name. “She really made things happen. She was a catalyst,” Faley said. That was the year that it really started to gain momentum and they hosted 350 special athletes, he said. “It was just very small … It was just one of those things that kind of came together and it started to grow and grow and grow,” Faley said. The Games have evolved into a familial effort and activity for the Faley family. The name is a dynasty on the list of Special Games board members. All his kids and 16 grandchildren are involved in some way, he said. Apart from the the contributions and time that the Faley family dedicates, the Games are supported by local schools, businesses and organizations.

Cal State Fullerton entered Sunday night looking to earn their second sweep of the year as they took on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. They were able to do just that, pulling off a 2-1 win courtesy of a walk-off squeeze bunt in the 11th inning. Junior Grahamm Wiest got the start for the Titans, throwing 10 strong innings. He allowed one run on four hits while striking out seven. His effort was unfortunately not rewarded with a win, as Koby Gauna earned the victory. “Our guys are doing great, we had a lot of quality at-bats tonight and I think we’re starting to turn it around at the plate,” Wiest said. “There’s a lot of confidence building so we’re going to try and roll it into next week.” Wiest wore No. 28, which is typically the number worn by Head Coach Rick Vanderhook, as opposed to his traditional No. 12. Vanderhook was placed on administrative leave last week.

“It was kind of a silent protest we want him back,” Wiest said. “It’s taking longer than we thought it would and we just need our coach back.” The bats remained dormant through the first few innings until sophomore Tanner Pinkston broke the scoreless tie with an RBI double that plated freshman Taylor Bryant. Pinkston continued his hot streak for the Titans, recording an RBI for the third consecutive game. The Rainbow Warriors countered immediately with a run of their own, courtesy of a run-scoring single from senior Marc Flores in the top of the fourth inning. Both teams remained quiet at the plate until the bottom of the fifth inning. Back-to-back singles from freshman Tyler Stieb and Pinkston, followed by defensive indifference, put runners on second and third for junior Matt Chapman. Unfortunately, the Titans were unable to bring any runs across as Chapman struck out looking to end the frame. The Titans were the beneficiaries of a defensive miscue from Hawaii. A routine grounder to Flores turned into an errant throw to his pitcher covering the bag, allowing for senior Clay Williamson to slide safely into second. Freshman A.J. Kennedy followed up the mistake with a sacrifice

bunt that set the table for Bryant to be the hero of the night. However, Fullerton’s woes with runners in scoring position continued, as a routine ground ball to third baseman Juliene Jones turned into a 5-2-5-4 double play that caught Bryant out between first and second base after Williamson was thrown out at home. Despite the lack of offense for the Titans, Wiest continued to dominate the Rainbow Warriors while Hawaii’s pitching staff kept CSUF quiet on offense. Senior Keegan Dale got the Titans’ offense started in the ninth inning with a rocket single up the middle, which he followed up by stealing second base without a throw. Junior Austin Diemer followed that up with a sacrifice bunt to move Dale over to third base.


Williamson stepped up to the plate, but was unable to deliver as he struck out on a fastball that was out of the strike zone. With two outs and the winning run on third, sophomore David Olmedo-Barrera flew out to left field to end the threat and send the Titans to extra innings for the second time in the three-game series. As well as Wiest pitched for CSUF, Rainbow Warriors reliever Scott Kuzminsky was just as dominant out of the bullpen. In the bottom of the 10th inning, the Titans were again given an excellent opportunity to pull out the victory, as they loaded up the bases with two outs and Dale back up at the plate.

Film student takes on Newport Beach Film Festival CSUF filmmaker premieres original short on big screen KALEY WILLIAMS Daily Titan

Most filmmakers work all their lives to see their work shown on a big screen, but for radio-TVfilm major Carlos Cortes, that dream is already becoming a reality. Cortes, 20, created an original short film titled disconnected., which was shown Sunday at the Newport Beach Film Festival. The short was shown at the ASIP Student Film Festival on campus last month where it took first place. Cortes said disconnected. is about a college student who is unable to use any device that requires electricity, so he must learn how to live without the use of technology. He said he was inspired

to make this film while on a trip to Colombia, where he was born. “I took a trip to the jungle where there was little to no electricity, and on New Year’s Eve the electricity went out in the whole neighborhood,” he said. “It was then when I realized how dependent we are (on) electricity and technology in general and more importantly how much more we can enjoy by interacting personally instead of electronically.” While Cortes was the brains behind this short film, he had a large team of people help make his vision come to life. Marc Oliver Downing, 19, a radio-TV-film major, was the editor for disconnected. He said it took about a month to edit the film to its final cut. Downing also helped Cortes get funding for his short film, which took a total of three days to

Students, local charity raise almost $20,000 in donations CYNTHIA WASHICKO Daily Titan

All they had was a cardboard box and a sleeping bag, which is exactly how they wanted it. More than 100 Master of Social Work (MSW) students participated in the inaugural Box City event on campus Thursday night. The students built their own shelters from cardboard boxes and spent the night inside them to help raise awareness of the struggles that homeless people face. Full-time MSW students began planning the nightlong event at the start of the fall 2013 semester as part of their curriculum. Caroline Bailey, Ph.D., an associate professor of social work, said she hopes to make Box City an annual event planned and run by future MSW students and faculty. Projects like these are a real-world version of what the students learn in the classroom, said Christine Ford, director of field education for the social work program. “This is social work,” Ford said. “This is what we do in social work, we look around, we see a need, we try to fill a void. We try to give populations that don’t have their own voice a voice.” About 12,700 people were homeless in Orange County last year, according to the Orange County Homeless Count and Survey Report by OC Partnership. Every day, about 4,300 people in the county are surviving without a permanent home. Fullerton’s homeless population is estimated to number between 200 to 300. The group set a goal of $10,000 in donations and while they were just shy of that number as of Thursday evening, Bailey was confident they would meet their target amount. The students also collected more than $10,000 worth of toiletries, clothes and other goods to donate. The event was the culmination of months of planning and a successful partnership with Family Promise of Orange County, a branch of a national organization devoted to aiding homeless families. The charity has held other Box City events in the past, but never on the scale of the event Thursday. “The students have really taken (Box City) to the next level by adding both the career fair element as well as the outreach

A shooting Saturday night in Garden Grove left one man dead and two other people wounded, according to the Orange County Register. Police responded to a call of shots fired and found one man dead. He apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Garden Grove police Lt. Ben Stauffer said another man and a woman were also found at the scene with gunshot wounds. The man was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange, where he was listed in critical condition Saturday night. The woman’s elbow was grazed by a bullet, which was treated at the scene and released. Police have not yet released the victims’ names due to the pending notification of their families, Stauffer said. - DAVID COATS

Authorities were called to the lake at around 7:30 a.m. when firefighters pulled the body out of the water and pronounced the woman dead, according to the Los Angeles Times. The woman was not immediately identified, but authorities say she is about 60 years old. Police said there is no evidence of foul play and the death appears to be an accidental drowning. - CHRISTINA NGUYEN

event,” said Casey Crosbie, the executive director of Family Promise of Orange County. The national Family Promise organization has taken an interest in what CSUF students have done with Box City, and part of the final project will include a handbook made by the students for the national organizers, Crosbie said. Following the campout Thursday, students met Friday to distribute goods to homeless and needy families. Planning Box City and the subsequent events was a good reminder of what it takes to do the job these

students are studying for, said Lillian Magee, a firstyear MSW student who helped plan the fundraising for Box City. “As a social worker, you cannot do it on your own,” Magee said. “You’re going to work with people you don’t always agree with, (you’ll) have differences of opinion, but in the long run it comes for the … good of others.” In coming years, the Box City event will likely feature changes from this year’s event, Bailey said. Nonetheless, future students will continue to learn the skills and gain the social work experience of putting on an event meant solely to help another group of people.

The self-appointed mayor refused to discuss the conditions the other detainees could possibly be released, saying only that further releases of detainees would be for prisoner exchanges. The detainees, who have been branded as spies, were not prisoners of war and did not suffer any violence from their captors since being seized on Friday. - CECILY MEZA

“My heart goes out to those who’ve lost so much. Prayers be with you and your loved ones.” “To those who lost their lives and or sacrificed their safety to save others, we thank you and will

keep you in our thoughts and prayers.” These were some of the messages members of the Cal State Fullerton Korean American Student Association (KASA) wrote to those affected by the sinking of a large ferry off the coast of South Korea. To share their support and condolences, more than 20 members of KASA placed tea lights on the steps of the Titan Gym in front of a drawing of a yellow ribbon, a symbol of

hope, during the candlelight vigil held Thursday. “Even if we live here in America, they’re still in our thoughts, even though they are a thousand miles away,” said Jung Bahk, 21, the co-president of KASA. This incident is one of the most fatal maritime disasters in South Korean history. The ferry Sewol was carrying 476 passengers from Incheon, a city close to Seoul, to Jejudo Island. The majority of the

Organizers for the program send out letters every year seeking volunteers, which couldn’t be easier. Faley said that if schools and other volunteers don’t receive their letters, he’ll get phone calls from people who are eager to devote one Friday out of the year. Donations of all kinds are also collected for the Games. Snacks such as Goldfish crackers, cookies and Sunny Delight are donated and distributed to make the day a success. The CSUF Philanthropic Foundation also offers its services to the Special Games. Foundation members assist in processing all monetary donations to the event. “It’s not a one-man show. It’s a community activity,” Faley said. Over the years, the program has evolved. Many aspects and activities have been added to make for a more memorable event. Cheerleaders from the volunteering schools cheer for the special athletes when they get off the bus on game day to make them feel welcome.

The ship’s captain, Lee Joon-seok, ordered the passengers to remain in place, to avoid exacerbating the list. 159 people and 15 crew members, including the ferry’s captain, disregarded the order and jumped from the ferry. So far, these are the only survivors. The captain and the

other surviving crew members are under arrest on criminal charges. Eleven days after the tragedy, 302 of the 476 passengers have been reported dead or still missing. Broken guidelines, an incompetent crew and overloading have all been suggested as the cause of the sinking. The Sewol was reportedly carrying 3,600 tons. The recommended capacity was 987 tons, according to the Korea Herald.

Caution needed with LA’s trash train MICHAEL CHEN Daily Titan

Orange County should be more cautious of the 648,210 tons of trash headed its way

Under a new $30 million twoyear agreement with the Los Angeles County, Orange County will see a lot more trash heading its way. But this is a small gift to receive compared to the thousands of tons of trash that will be transported to Orange County landfills. LA will be sending 648,210 tons of trash into Orange County. However, Orange County officials should place more emphasis on the long-term environmental impacts of this instead of the shortterm financial benefit. To look at the issue from a monetary standpoint is narrow-minded and ignores the greater environmental issue that will present itself in the future. An article in the Orange County Register said the impact on the landfills would be minor, but

the reported numbers seem to be small compared to the amount of trash being dumped. “Selling the space to Los Angeles County sanitation districts will decrease the lifetime of Olinda Alpha Landfill in Brea by six months and Frank R. Bowerman Landfill in Irvine by five months,” said Morgan Cook, a staff writer for the Register. The Olinda Alpha Landfill has 565 acres of land with 420 acres available for dumping trash. Last year, the landfill accepted 6,000 tons of trash each day. This amounts to 2,190,000 tons of trash that year. The 648,210 tons of estimated trash would equate to around a 30 percent increase in waste disposal given those numbers. The trash would of course be split into two landfills but the

other landfill—the Frank R. Bowerman Landfill—disposes of less trash than its Brea counterpart. The Frank R. Bowerman landfill is 725 acres large with 534 acres available for dumping trash. But in 2012 it only disposed of a little over 1,447,000 tons of waste according to While the Irvine landfill seems to be a little larger than the Brea landfill, it appears to be used to accepting less waste. A 648,210 ton increase in trash would equate to a 45 percent increase in trash disposal at this landfill. This would be a pretty huge boost in trash disposal. But as previously stated, the 648,210 tons wouldn’t be going to each landfill, it would be split in half for both landfills. But even if it was split, it would still

be a 15 percent increase for Brea and a 22.5 percent increase for Irvine. And this number would only be for the first year. It’s a two-year agreement that will see 648,210 tons each year. Considering this extra amount of trash will be extra on top of the trash that is already being disposed by the city itself, the projection of the landfills only losing a couple months of their lifetime seems rather odd. City populations are also growing so the yearly disposal rates of the cities could grow as well, lowering that lifetime even more. While $30 million can definitely benefit the county in the short run, the county should definitely make sure to check the math and ensure they can afford to accept all this extra trash.

Detour Little Dragon, Big Sound APRIL 28, 2014




Coachella and SXSW featured band to release fourth album elizabeth muñoz Daily Titan

When the melodies and sounds of the Swedish electro-pop band Little Dragon first engulf you, it’s hard to decide whether you should dance along to it or lay back and sink into the music. The ethereal vocals of lead singer, Yukimi Nagano, paired with the hypnotizing bass beats of Fredrik Wallin create a sound that puts the body in a pleasurable shock—pleasurable, because the mixture of sounds are seamlessly woven. The sounds soothe and shock the ear, with compositions like this are rarely heard elsewhere. They are one part chillout dreamy and one part club-friendly fierce. Their fourth upcoming album, titled Nabuma Rubberband, is set to release on May 13. It is the first album from Little Dragon since their groundbreaking record Ritual Union in 2011. Three singles off the new album have already been released. Tracks like “Klapp Klapp,” “Paris” and “Let Go” exhibit their signature synth-pop sounds and stylishly slinky beats. Little by little, music fanatics are starting to discover the band’s truly original talent. Their unique and textured soul is being recognized near and far, by music lovers and performers alike, with performances at Coachella and South by Southwest this year. With collaborations with

artists like Gorillaz, SBTRKT and Big Boi under their belt, just to name a few, this small town band is stirring up a storm across the music scene with a propulsion that seems unstoppable. This growing fame took a while to gain its current momentum. Lead vocalist Nagano, drummer Erik Bodin, bassist Wallin and keyboardist Hakan Wirenstrand began playing together in high school.

Their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden, provided them with inspiration for their music, which is a playful blend of R&B, New Wave, experimental and electro-pop. Little Dragon’s genre of music is not one that can easily be clearly categorized, as every album since their self-titled debut record has provided audiences with something hauntingly authentic and diverse. Their charm lies in their

ability to appeal to any music lover. “I think any music fan that has a real love for music and isn’t limited by certain genre constraints will like us,” Nagano said, in an interview with Pigeons and Planes. “When we make music, the inspiration comes from so many different places, so I think that’s why people from different worlds can recognize something they like in our music.” Although fans have been

given a glimpse of what to expect from the forthcoming album, each single release presents its own distinct facet of the Swedish dream team. Frontwoman Nagano said in an interview with Rolling Stone that their inspiration was Janet Jackson slow jams that she used to listen to while roaming the streets in Gothenburg. The unhurried tracks like “Let Go” are a reintroduction to their after-hour

charm that hasn’t been heard since “Twice,” from their first album. In anticipation of the album release, a limited edition vinyl, including the songs “Klapp Klapp” and “Let Go,” was sold at Amoeba Music in Hollywood for Record Store Day, where the band made an appearance to sign copies. Little as the dragon might have been in the beginning, it has now evolved into a full and conquering beast.

Sophomore human communications major, Madison Eder, 19, also played a large role in the production. Cortes cast her as one of the stars of his film. Eder said she was excited to work on the project because of how passionate Cortes was about his script. “It was apparent that he cared about every aspect of the production, even making the individual members of the crew feel validated,” Eder said. Cortes said two parts of

filming stood out to him, which he marked as the most enjoyable moments of the production process for disconnected. The first was on their first day of filming. “It involved our main actor putting his hand closer to a light bulb, which dimmed as the hand got near it,” Cortes said. “When we shot that particular scene we knew that we were making something special because it was so much fun to shoot a scene using practical effects instead of digital effects.” The second moment that really stood out to Cortes was shooting a scene that

involved 30 extras. Cortes said he felt that in that moment it became apparent how much support his project had garnered. His short film made its debut at the Newport Beach Film Festival yesterday afternoon during the collegiate showcase. “I am very proud of having the opportunity to show all the hard work that was put into this short to the audience at Newport,” Cortes said.

CSUF softball drops doubleheader at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo JONATHAN SALIBY For The Daily Titan

In the opening doubleheader of a three-game Big West Conference series at Bob Janssen Field in San Luis Obispo, the Cal State Fullerton softball team came up short in both games to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Saturday. The team faltered with a score of 6-0 in the first game and 2-1 in the second game. Game 1 In the bottom of the first inning, Cal Poly SLO got to Titans pitcher Jasmine Antunez right away with a triple to right field by shortstop Kim Westlund. Left fielder Emily Ceccacci followed with a single to left center, scoring Westlund and giving Cal Poly SLO an early 1-0 lead. After the first inning, freshman pitcher Christina Washington came in

to replace Antunez and was able to keep Cal Poly SLO scoreless until they struck again in the bottom of the fifth inning. With two runners on base, Westlund drove in both with a double to right center giving the Mustangs a 3-0 lead. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Cal Poly SLO continued to give Washington trouble with a home run to left-center field by pitcher Sierra Hyland. Following the home run, a single by Mariah Cochiolo, triple by Lauren Moreno and a single to left field by Kiersten Nordin gave the Mustangs a commanding 6-0 lead. Hyland shutout the Titans and only allowed two hits. She was awarded with the win, making her 22-7 for the season. Antunez was tagged with the loss, putting her at 10-9 for the season.

the Mustangs an early 1-0 lead. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Cal Poly SLO was able to tally another run with Cochiolo hitting a single up the middle to score teammate Courtney Tyler and give the Mustangs a 2-0 lead. In the top of the seventh inning, the Titans attempted a comeback with a home run to left field by sophomore third baseman Missy Taukeiaho. This cut the Titans’ deficit to one run, but they were unable to add anymore offense in the inning as they were defeated, 2-1. Cal Poly SLO pitcher Chloe Wurst was awarded with the win, making her 6-9 for the season. Wesley was tagged with the loss, dropping her to 3-6 for the

season. This was the first time since the 2010 season that the Titans have lost a doubleheader at Bob Janssen Field. The Titan softball team has an overall record of 26-20-1 with a 7-6 record in conference play, while Cal Poly SLO has an overall record of 28-17 and has a 9-5 record in conference play. CSUF hopes to avoid the series sweep Sunday against the Mustangs at noon. The game will be the Titans’ last in the month of April, as they will not play again until May 1 at Anderson Family Field against Santa Clara.

The Cal State Fullerton softball team won, 5-3, in the finale of a three-game series against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Sunday. The Titans (27-20-1, 8-7 Big West) lost a doubleheader to the Mustangs on Saturday but were able to salvage a win in the series. Freshman Sierra Hyland took the circle for the Mustangs (28-18, 9-6 Big West) after shutting out the Titans in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday. She leads the Big West Conference in wins, innings pitched, strikeouts and earned run average. Hyland is a finalist for the inaugural National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division I National Freshman of the Year trophy. Hyland walked sophomore third baseman Missy Taukeiaho to open the game.

Wesley pitched for the Titans after losing despite pitching well in game two Saturday. Wesley was roughed up by the Mustangs in the first inning. She walked senior shortstop Kim Westlund to lead off the bottom of the first inning. An error by Taukeiaho put runners on first and second with nobody out. Freshman right fielder Courtney Tyler reached on an error by Wesley, which scored Westlund to tie the game. Senior catcher Mariah Cochiolo singled, scoring two to give the Mustangs a 3-1 lead. Wesley got the next two hitters to pop out to stop the bleeding. All three runs allowed by Wesley were unearned. The Titans rallied in the second inning. Freshman designated player Sydney Colenzo led off the inning with a single. Senior center fielder Jena Rubio bunted into a fielders choice. Rubio advanced to second on a throwing error by Cochiolo.

Hyland struck out senior right fielder Lauren Mario to end the inning with the Titans leading 5-3. All four runs allowed by Hyland in the second inning were unearned.

Wesley pitched a gem as well, allowing zero earned runs on only three hits.

The Cal State Fullerton baseball team continued its homestand against Hawaii Saturday, where its offense exploded after receiving a spark from a 1-0 win on Friday. The Titans beat the Rainbow Warriors 17-4, marking their highest-scoring game of the season. “Today we did a good job of answering back,” said interim Head Coach Mike Kirby. “When they scored, we answered back. After we scored we shut them down. It’s something we pride ourselves on.” Junior third baseman Matt Chapman led the hitting charge for CSUF, hitting five-for-five with three runs batted in and scoring two runs. “We were just trying to play to win and trying to score some runs early. We haven’t been scoring too many runs lately, but just get good swings on the ball and see what happens,” Chapman said. “We weren’t trying to necessarily get a bunch of hits, we were just trying to put good swings and see what happened. Tonight kind of fell in our favor.” Chapman was the first player to get five hits for the Titans since J.D. Davis did against the Rainbow Warriors on April 27, 2013. Sophomore outfielder Tyler Stieb also had a solid performance, hitting two-forfour with three runs batted in and scoring three runs. Tanner Pinkston, Austin Diemer, Clay Williamson and Davis each added two RBIs for the Titans. Sophomore second baseman Taylor Bryant also had his first multi-hit game of the season, hitting two-for-three with a run batted in and two runs scored. The Titans’ offensive outburst was highlighted in the sixth inning, where they scored eight runs. Seven of these runs were scored with one out. Bryant hit an RBI double to deep left field and advanced to third on the throw. There were six total hits in the inning, and 12 batters were sent to the plate. The Titans weren’t finished scoring though, as they tacked on three more in the eighth inning. Stieb hit an RBI single to center field before pinch hitter Marcus

4 Vidales reached on a fielder’s choice, scoring David Olmedo-Barrera. Stieb then scored an unearned run from second on a throwing error. After CSUF scored three more insurance runs in the eighth, the Rainbow Warriors failed to get a hit in the top of the ninth inning as Miles Chambers closed it out for the Titans. Sophomore Justin Garza made the start for CSUF, and he recovered from his rough start in San Luis Obispo, throwing six innings and allowing three runs. He struck out three batters without issuing a walk and notched the win, improving his record to 3-2. This marked Garza’s first quality start since March 1 at Oregon, and it was his third of the season. Garza was happy that the Titans got another win after their rough patch on the road. “Every win matters, so we can use any kind of momentum,” Garza said. Garza started off roughly though, allowing all three of his runs in the first three innings. He settled down afterward, retiring the last nine batters he faced before being taken out. Freshman Chad Hockin stepped in for Garza in the seventh inning and allowed a solo home run to junior Jordan Richartz. Junior Tyler Peitzmeier contributed an additional 1.1 innings for CSUF before Chambers threw in the ninth. The Titans will look to continue their offensive momentum into the series finale. “We’re looking forward to the game but it’s college baseball, so we’ll try to do the same thing. It might not be as easy, but come out and throw more strikes and play better catch,” Kirby said. For more information on the CSUF baseball team and all Titan Athletics, go to

SPORTS Titans win pitching duel


APRIL 28, 2014



Eshelman’s 10-inning complete game is the first since 2004 IAN O’BRIEN Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton baseball team took to Goodwin Field for the first time in over two weeks, and the return home gave the team the spark it desperately needed. The Titans opened their homestand against Hawaii on Friday night, and they came out with a 1-0 victory in 10 innings to snap their six-game losing streak. Playing 10 innings marked the Titans’ second consecutive game of extra innings and their third in the last four games. Their last two extra-inning games were a 13-inning loss to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and a 16-inning loss to Fresno State. The Titans managed to pull out the victory in extra innings for the first time since beating UC Santa Barbara in 11 innings on April 11. Sophomore Thomas Eshelman took the mound for CSUF, and he went the distance to notch the win. He struck out six batters in 10 innings of action. “Every time I go out, I try to compete with what I got,” Eshelman said. Eshelman was the first CSUF pitcher to throw a complete game of 10 innings since Jason Windsor in 2004. The game was his third of the season. The Titans’ hitting woes continued through the first nine innings though, and

It was more of the same for Fullerton, as Dale grounded out to end yet another scoring opportunity. Defense continued to hurt CSUF in the 11th inning, as an error from shortstop Timmy Richards put runners on first and second with just one out. The inning ended in another unique manner, as junior Koby Gauna struck out junior Kaeo Aliviado and senior catcher Jared Deacon gunned down the Hawaii runner to end the frame and put the fans on their feet at Goodwin Field. Diemer got the bottom of the 11th started off on

a positive note by getting hit by a pitch and promptly stealing second base. Williamson then moved him over with a beautifully placed sacrifice bunt that set the stage for Deacon to win the game in his first at bat of the night. The senior leader did just that, laying down a squeeze bunt to bring in Diemer and win the game 2-1. “Just knowing that Deacon’s going to get the job done, he’s a hard worker so I knew it was gonna happen,” Diemer said.

their sole run in the 10th snapped their scoreless streak of 21.2 innings. Senior Matt Cooper took the mound for the Rainbow Warriors and pitched nine shutout innings with 11 strikeouts and only four hits allowed. He also issued just one walk, but he received no run support in a hard-luck no-decision. Redshirt sophomore Juliene Jones took the loss after taking over for Cooper in the 10th inning. The Rainbow Warriors threatened in the ninth inning with two consecutive singles from juniors Kaeo Aliviado and Stephen Ventimilia. They were on the corners with one out, but Eshelman recorded a crucial strikeout to make it two outs. After the strikeout, Aliviado stole second to put himself in scoring position with Ventimilia. However, senior Marc Flores flied out, allowing Eshelman to escape the jam. Senior catcher Jared Deacon sparked the Titans’ rally in the 10th inning with a single to left field. Sophomore David Olmedo-Barrera filled in for fellow sophomore Tyler Stieb as a pinch hitter and reached first on a throwing error by Hawaii senior Matt Wobrock. After junior outfielder Clay Williamson flied out to left field, sophomore first baseman Tanner Pinkston became the hero for CSUF by hitting a walk-off single to center field. Deacon scored from second on Pinkston’s hit. “The monkey’s finally off my back. It feels nice to finally come in clutch, especially from an offensive

standpoint, but also for Eshelman because he pitched his heart out,” Pinkston said. Pinkston led the Titans in hitting with a two-for-five effort. He was the only CSUF player to have a multiple hit performance. Deacon, Keegan Dale, Austin Diemer and J.D. Davis each recorded one hit for the Titans. Pinkston’s hit gave the Titans an emotional boost after they returned from a road trip where they only won one of seven games. “It’s been tough definitely. We’ve been struggling and we haven’t been able to get a lot, so we’ve been grinding and to finally be able to come up with something like that feels good,” Pinkston said. Mike Kirby, an interim

head coach for the Titans while Rick Vanderhook is on administrative leave, was also relieved to see the Titans snap their losing streak. “We need to come and get to work tomorrow and have good preparation prior to the game, come out and get ready to compete on the first pitch,” Kirby said. “This was a good feeling to get this off of our backs so we’ll see what happens tomorrow.” For more information on CSUF baseball and all Titan Athletics, go to
