Colton Eastman was heroic and Hank LoForte was clutch, as Cal State Fullerton hung on to defeat Big West rival Long Beach State, 2-1 to clinch Long Beach Super Regional Championship and the Titans 18th trip to the College World Series, Sunday afternoon at Blair Field.
For the Titans (39-22), they'll be making second trip to Omaha in the last three seasons, while it makes the first time they've come back to win a Super Regional after losing the first game.
Eastman (2-0) was nearly unhittable on the mound, as he tossed a season-high 7.0 innings, allowing just one hit and zero earned runs while striking out eight. Eastman put together this performance after, earning the win in Fullerton's regional clinching at Stanford last Saturday. Eastman had a no-hitter going through five innings.
