Gonzaga baseball honors Steve Hertz then edges New Mexico State 2-1

UPDATED: Fri., May 11, 2018

From staff reports

Gonzaga rose to the occasion on Friday, the day the Bulldogs’ baseball complex was renamed for former player and longtime coach Steve Hertz.

The Bulldogs (25-20) defeated New Mexico State (33-17) 2-1 on a two-run home run by Jake Vieth and a solid pitching performance by Daniel Bies, Calvin LeBrun and Casey Legumina.

Bies pitched 6 innings, allowing one run on three hits with six strikeouts and no walks. LeBrun faced a minimum three batters in working through the seventh, and Legumina allowed just one hit with two strikeouts in two innings. His save was his school-record 13th this season, breaking a tie with Wyatt Mills (2017) and Cody Martin (2011).

The three-game nonconference series continues at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
