No. 7 UC Irvine used a season-high 21 hits to put 10 runs on the board Friday night, April 11 as the Anteaters defeated No. 16 Long Beach State, 10-5 at Blair Field. The Anteaters improved to 22-5 on the season and 4-3 in conference behind three hits apiece for Ben Orloff, Aaron Lowenstein, and Casey Stevenson.
