FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — Jerrod Bravo drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 14th inning, leading Cal State Fullerton past Arizona State 3-2 in an NCAA Tournament game that ended early Sunday morning.
Chris Hudgins was hit by a pitch from Eder Erives to lead off the 14th for the Titans (36-22), and was sacrificed to second by Taylor Bryant. Josh Vargas was intentionally walked, and one out later, David Olmedo-Barrera drew a walk to load the bases. Bravo then took four straight balls from Erives (1-1) to force in the winning run, ending the contest that lasted 5 hours, 12 minutes.
The Titans moved into the championship round of the Fullerton Regional, while the Sun Devils (35-22) face Pepperdine on Sunday in an elimination game.
Tyler Peitzmeier (3-3) threw five scoreless innings in relief of Titans starter Thomas Eshelman, who tied a career high with 14 strikeouts in nine innings.
