Freshman right-hander Ryan O'Sullivan picked up his first collegiate victory tonight in San Diego State's 1-0 win over Kansas at Tony Gwynn Stadium. O'Sullivan limited the Jayhawks to three hits over seven innings and struck out three.
SDSU closer Addison Reed finished off Kansas in the ninth inning, but not before the Jayhawks made things tense. Kansas placed the tying run at second base with one out following a leadoff single and sacrifice bunt. Reed got a strikeout for the second out, but a hit batter and an error loaded the bases. A popup to first base ended the threat and the game.
Reed now has seven saves for the Aztecs, who have improved to 12-6 with a five-game winning streak.
