April 10, 2018 (San Diego) - The San Diego State baseball team dropped a 10-2 decision at home against UC Irvine. The Aztecs fall to 21-12 on the year, while the Anteaters improve to 18-13 and complete a season sweep in the 2018 series. 

SDSU found itself in a large hole early in the game, as UC Irvine jumped out to a 7-0 lead after a seven-run second inning. The Anteaters recorded seven base hits in the frame, including three doubles and a Ryan Fitzpatrick three-run home run that capped the second-inning outburst. UC Irvine's lead grew to 10-0 after a run in the fourth and two runs in the sixth.

The Aztecs avoided the shutout with a two-run bottom of the ninth that featured RBI singles by David Hensley and Grant Mayeaux.

 
NOTES
  • Patrick Henry alum David Hensley went 4-for-4 to extend his on-base streak to 26, tying the longest streak by an Aztec since the start of the 2016 season. Hensley also pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning.
  • SDSU sees a five-game non-conference winning streak snapped after Tuesday's setback.
  • SDSU falls to 21-7 against teams from the Big West since the start of the 2017 season. SDSU plays each of its next four games (three-game series vs. Cal State Fullerton, midweek vs. CSUN) against Big West programs.
