BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Righty Blair Calvo pitched eight innings of two-hit, shutout baseball as Eastern Florida defeated Indian River State 2-0 on Sunday at Bruce Bochy Field.
The victory, Eastern Florida’s 16th at home against five losses, improved the Titans overall record to 21-15 and its FCSAA Southern Conference mark to 9-7.
Indian River fell to 10-22 and 3-14.
Calvo allowed a hit in the second inning and another in the eighth, facing 27 batters total.
Closer Alec Lamrouex pitched the ninth. He allowed a lead off single but benefitted from an unassisted double play by first baseman Alessandro Lima.
The Titans got all the runs they needed in the third inning, the runs batted in going to Nick Capra on a ground out and Freddi Ramos on a single.
The Titans had six hits, two from second baseman John Capra, who scored along with Angel Soto.
Calvo improved to 5-3 on the season while Lamrouex recorded his fifth save.
“I just established the fastball and got ahead with the slider,” said Calvo who recorded eight strikeouts and allowed two walks.
“Starting off I just went out there like any other day. This game there was a little more on the line but just started to progress through the game and it just got better and better.”
Titans head coach Jeff Tam agreed.
“That was impressive,” Tam said. “Slider, plus fastball late life. He had complete command.”
