San Diego State baseball won its first Mountain West conference game of the season, defeating Fresno State 5-4 on Sunday afternoon.

The win, which ended the Aztecs’ 7-game losing streak, gives them a 2-10 record on the season, and in the process gave the Bulldogs their first loss of 2016, sending their record to 11-1.

After two losses to FSU, one being in extra innings and the other in a 10-5 blowout, SDSU was able to use a late-inning rally to earn its first home victory this year.

The Aztecs led early, scoring two runs in the 2nd inning, but faced a 4-2 deficit going into the bottom of the 8th.

In that inning, freshman infielder Niko Navarro drove in one run with a single to right field.

Later in the 8th, Navarro scored the winning run on a two – run single by sophomore second baseman Justin Wylie.

Wylie leads the Aztecs with seven rbis and 15 strikeouts in 12 starts this season.

The hit for Navarro was his first of the season, and the first of his SDSU career.

SDSU will try to continue its winning ways next weekend when it hosts Northwestern University for a four-game series.
