Illinois 7 Cal-State Fullerton 5
FULLERTON, CA – Matt Dittman’s two-out single in the eighth drove home Brandon Hohl with the go-ahead run and Davis Hendrickson followed with a two-run double two batters later as fourth-seeded Illinois scored six times in the final three innings to eliminate host and top-seeded Cal State Fullerton, 7-5, in game five of the 2011 NCAA Baseball Regionals on Sunday evening at Goodwin Field.
The Titans (41-17) out-hit the Fighting Illini, 12-7, on the night, but were just 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position, stranding eight on base – six of those at second base or closer. Fullerton’s season ends in regional play for the first time since 2002 when the Titans finished 1-2 in the postseason at Palo Alto with losses to Stanford and Long Beach State sandwiched around a win over San Jose State
