Cal State Bakersfield gave starter Austin Davis more than enough support in Sunday's Western Athletic Conference baseball game.
Davis limited Chicago State to three hits as the Roadrunners cruised to an 11-0, seven-inning victory at Hardt Field.
The game was called after seven innings because of the 10-run conference mercy rule.
The shutout was the first of the season for CSUB (14-19, 7-5 WAC), and completed the 'Runners' first series sweep of the year.
"Our goal this weekend was to get the sweep," Davis said. "We've been struggling this whole season, but now it's time we turned it around."
Davis struck out nine and walked two against the Cougars (10-21, 0-9), in front of several professional scouts.
"I know they're gonna be out there so I just clear it when I get here," Davis said. "When they make you a prospect, you gotta just take that and know you're that good and you can go out there and beat anybody any day."
Already ahead 4-0, CSUB made the most of three walks and four hits, including a 2-run triple by Oscar Sanay, to score seven runs in the sixth. Sanay's triple was his second of the series, and he finished with four RBIs to match his career high for a game.
"We were able to put everything together," CSUB coach Bill Kernen said. "That's our objective everyday, to play the three parts of the game at a high level. We hit the ball a lot better the last two games and that was good to see since we haven't done that in a while.
"The plate discipline is the biggest deal. It's really the most important part of hitting. People get walks and think that it's something that the pitcher did wrong, but a lot of times it's something that the hitter did right."
The Roadrunners will continue their homestand against Cal Poly on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
