The Cal State Stanislaus softball team lost two one-run games to San Francisco State on Tuesday with the Gators winning in their final at-bats.
Kelly Mast's pinch-hit home run gave San Francisco State the walk-off 4-1 win in the seventh inning of game one. In game two, SF State used a double, a hit, a Warrior error and a fly ball to break a scoreless game to win 1-0.
Cal State Stanislaus has now lost six close games in the last four days. The Warriors (15-40, 6-26 CCAA) will close out the season this weekend at home for a four-game series against Humboldt State starting on Friday.
Both teams got on the board in the first inning of the make-up doubleheader opener. The Warriors capitalized on a Gator error and manufactured two runs with RBIs by Jordan Flora and Vanessa Del Toro to go up 2-0.
San Francisco State (16-30, 9-23 CCAA) answered with three runs in the bottom half with a three-run home run by Courtney Gravel.
Stanislaus tied the game in the third on a solo home run by Sarah Locarnini, who finished the game 2-for-4 and scored twice.
The Warriors had the bases loaded in the sixth and seventh innings, but came up empty, setting up SF State's seventh inning. With two outs, Mast came in to hit in the ninth spot and delivered.
In the nightcap, the Gators broke a scoreless tie in the sixth. After a leadoff double, Kelsey Murakami moved to third on a single and scored on a flyball by Lucy Fernandez.
Stanislaus had two two-out doubles in the first and second innings before grounders ended the rally. The Warriors again had two doubles in the fifth inning but couldn't score.
