    Fast Start, Tough Finish
    - Gonzaga got off to a great start in the series at No. 20/22 Texas A&M with a Friday win, but the Aggies took the final two games of the series.
    - The win in game one gave GU three straight wins over ranked opponents when combined with the two the previous weekend at then-No. 23 Southern Miss.
    - Casey Legumina earned the win with 5.0 innings of work and Alek Jacob worked a 3.0 inning save to help GU to a 6-4 win. Austin Pinorini was 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored.
    - In the second game, the Aggies put up 14 runs, but GU came back on Sunday and held them to just three in a 3-1 loss.
    - The bright spot in the finale was Nick Trogrlic-Iverson, who worked 5.0 innings of relief and gave up just one run on three hits.

    Zags Take Sweep at Southern Miss
    - Gonzaga enters the Texas A&M series fresh off a two-game sweep at then-No. 23 Southern Miss last weekend.
    - In a weather-filled trip, the Friday game was postponed to Saturday, making a doubleheader which the Zags won 4-2 and 10-8 (10). Sunday's game began and played into the fourth with USM leading 7-1, but weather caused a delay, which turned into a cancellation. The game officially went down as a no contest due to five innings not being completed.

    Offense Coming
    - Gonzaga has at least seven hits in each of its last seven games, including at least 11 in four of those games.
    - Mason Marenco has been a boost to the Gonzaga offense over the last five games. In his first five career games, he has nine hits and is batting .474 with a double, an RBI and three runs scored.
    - Ernie Yake has been the most clutch hitter for GU, going 6-for-13 (.462) with runners in scoring position, and Josh Bristyan isn't far behind at 5-for-12 (.417).
    - Troy Johnston has also produced in big situations, tying Sullivan for the team lead with 11 RBI on the year.

    Sullivan Continues to Mash
    - Newcomer Ryan Sullivan has a team-high six home runs on the year, including a solo shot in his last game out at Texas A&M. He had three in the four-game series at CSUN.
    - He leads the team with a .340 batting average, .755 slugging percentage and on-base percentage of .426. He also has a team-leading 18 hits, 16 runs and 11 RBI.
    - He hit .389 with a 1.000 slugging percentage at CSUN in four games, totaling three homers, six RBI and nine runs scored in that series alone.

    Rising 'Pen
    - Along with Trogrlic-Iverson's breakout day with 5.0 innings of one-run work against Texas A&M and Jacob's emergence as the closer, Mason Wells put up solid numbers. The freshman out of Spokane has made four appearances and allowed hitters to bat just .125 against him. Walks have hurt his numbers a bit, but he worked 1.0 inning of perfect relief with two strikeouts against Texas A&M on Sunday.
    - Michael Spellacy also had a solid outing in his time on the mound at Texas A&M. In the second game, Spellacy worked 3.2 shutout innings in the middle of the game and has allowed just one run over his last 6.2 innings out of the bullpen...

    Baseball Knocks Off Utah, 5-3

    Nyquist’s three-run homer put GU in lead for good


    SALT LAKE CITY — Gonzaga baseball took advantage of a three-run homer by Nick Nyquist and shut down Utah on the way to a 5-3 road win on Tuesday afternoon in Salt Lake City.

    Nyquist came to the plate with two runners aboard in the sixth and Gonzaga trailing 2-1, and the senior deposited the ball over the left field fence for his third home run of the season. The dinger put GU ahead 4-2.

    Gonzaga's bullpen then pitched its way out of two big jams in the eighth and ninth to complete the victory. Utah loaded the bases in both innings, but came away empty-handed. After starter Matthew Henckel went 4.1 innings and allowed just two runs, the bullpen pitched the final 4.2 innings and gave up just one run. Taylor Davis got the win, going 1.2 innings and allowing just one run. Trent Schulte and Billy Dimlow combined for the next 1.2, and Alek Jacob closed out the final 1.1 for his fourth save of the year.

    On offense, Gonzaga got three hits from Ernie Yake and two from Troy Johnston to go along with Nyquists homer.

    "That was a good win to springboard us into conference play," head coach Mark Machtolf said. "It was a good group effort on the mound and really nice to see Nick Nyquist hit that big blast."

    GU scored to start the game when Yake led off with a triple and came home on a sacrifice fly by Guthrie Morrison for a 1-0 lead. After Utah scored single runs in the fourth and fifth, Nyquist's game changing at-bat put GU in the lead for good. The Zags added one more in the seventh on a sac fly by Brett Harris.

    GU stays in the state of Utah for the West Coast Conference opener at BYU on Thursday, March 14. In a series that was originally scheduled for Spokane, this season's location was switched with the 2020 BYU-GU series. GU will play the three games this week in Provo, Utah.
