      Bailey Goes the Distance in 4-1 Win at LMU

      Zags tied for first after Bailey's first complete game of 2016


      LOS ANGELES--After another outstanding start from junior ace Brandon Bailey, Gonzaga University baseball is back atop the West Coast Conference standings after a 4-1 win over Loyola Marymount Friday night at Page Stadium in Los Angeles...


      Bulldog Bites:

      •Bailey pitched a gem Friday night, striking out 10 in nine innings with zero walks and just one run allowed. It's his third double-digit strikeout game of the year, and the big night puts him at 100 for the season. He's the first Zag with 100 strikeouts since 2011 and tied for eighth on the program's single-season strikeouts list. The Broomfield, Colo., native entered the game second in the WCC and 22nd in the nation in strikeouts.
      •Bailey's complete game was also his first of the season and the third of the year by a Gonzaga pitcher. He now has six career complete games, tying for 23rd-most among active pitchers in Division I...


      Next Up:

      Gonzaga (28-15, 14-8 WCC) and Loyola Marymount continue the key three-game series with game two Saturday, May 14, again at 6:00 p.m. in Page Stadium. Junior righty Eli Morgan will toe the rubber for Gonzaga while the Lions still have yet to determine their starter.

            2nd game in a row Zags score some insurance runs in the 9th to break open close games.
            But we don't play nobody.

              Zags Move atop WCC Standings with Morgan's Shutout

              11 strikeouts and six hits allowed for the sophomore


              LOS ANGELES--With another outstanding pitching performance, the Gonzaga University baseball team took sole possession of first place in the West Coast Conference standings Saturday as Eli Morgan went the distance in a 4-0 shutout of Loyola Marymount.

              Morgan pitched all nine innings, tying a career-high 11 batters while allowing just six hits and walking one. It's Morgan's second career shutout and second of the season after he also held Portland scoreless over nine innings April 9 in Spokane. Saturday's win was his ninth of the year, advancing his record to 9-1 overall.

              Morgan limited scoring opportunities for the Lions, and when they did arise, he shut the door to keep LMU scoreless. The home squad got three runners to third base - once in each of the first, fifth, and eighth innings - but the Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., native left them stranded. In all, Morgan stranded seven base runners on the night.

              After Morgan kept LMU off the scoreboard in the eighth, the Zags took advantage of their opportunities in the ninth with three runs to blow the game open late. Shortstop Dustin Breshears gave Gonzaga a base runner with a one-out single, and he moved over on a ground out by Joey Harris. Designated hitter Nick Brooks then lined a single into right field, allowing Breshears to score from second to give the Zags a 2-0 advantage. That RBI single chased LMU reliever Cory Abbot from the game in favor of Sean Watkins, but the Zags greeted the Lions' closer with back-to-back RBI doubles form Jace VanDeBrake and Sam Brown for a 4-0 lead...


              Magic Number: 1: With the win, Gonzaga (29-15, 15-8 WCC) takes sole control of first place in the WCC standings and is one game away from clinching a berth to the WCC Championships. The top four teams advance to the conference tournament, held in Stockton, Calif., and the fifth-place team of San Francisco was eliminated after a loss to BYU earlier Saturday. The teams that entered the day in seventh, San Diego and Pacific, were still mathematically alive with only 11 losses and six conference games left to play. Loyola Marymount dropped to 13-13 in conference play (26-25 overall) with the loss and was eliminated from postseason consideration...


              Next Up:

              The Zags have a chance to clinch their berth to the WCC Championships and sweep Loyola Marymount all at once with the final game of the series Sunday, May 15. That 1:00 p.m. contest will feature junior right hander Hunter Wells on the mound for Gonzaga while Loyola Marymount will turn to RHP J.D. Busfield.
