push Arizona State to a 5-3
victory over Fullerton State in
the opening of baseball's 29th

first-round game in the eight-
team double elimination tour-
Fullerton State, 36-15, put its
first three runners aboard in
the opening inning as Bannister
handed out three walks. He fol-
lowed by retiring two batters
on a strike out and a fly out
and appeared on the verge of
ending the inning when his wild
pickoff throw to second allowed
a run to score.
Thereafter,ehe was in total
control until the ninth when
Fullerton State got two runs on
three hits.
Third-ranked Arizona State,
59-11, struck back in the bot-
tom of the first on a single
by Tom Fain, an error, a
walk and a two-run single by
Mike Colbern.

Chris Nyman's run-scoring sin-

gle, two errors and a two-run
