There are sweeps and then there are sweeps. The Culver-Stockton baseball team outscored Robert Morris-Springfield 56-5 in taking a four-game series, and Gene Nanney played a big part.

The former Rodriguez High and Solano Community College standout batted .500 (6 for 12) and personally outscored the opposition himself by making it home six times.

Nanney’s best outing was in the only contest that was a game, a 3-2 victory in the opener during which he went 3 for 4. In the other games, 13-0, 28-0 and 12-3 triumphs, he contributed a double and a triple.

Heading into this week’s action, Nanney had gotten into 10 games for the Wildcats (7-7), nine of them starts, batting .250 with seven runs scored and three RBIs.

Brenden Farney (Fairfield, Vacaville) also batted .500 for the week (6 for 12) thanks to going 3 for 3 in California’s 2-1 win over Arkansas, during which he doubled and scored the first run for the Golden Bears (10-5). Farney started his week, during which Cal went 4-3, by doubling and driving in two runs during a 5-3 win over Baylor.

Hawaii (7-9) split four games with Texas with Juliene Jones (Vanden) going 3 for 13.

In easily his best outing of the season, A.J. Quintero allowed just six hits and one unearned run over the first eight innings, striking out eight and walking none to get the victory for Cal State Monterey Bay (9-14, 6-10 CCAA) in a 2-1 win over San Francisco State.

Friends (12-6) dropped two of three games as Domenick Romero (Rodriguez) went 1 for 9 for the Falcons.

Sonoma State (6-7) was swept in a three-game series by Fresno Pacific with Alex Crosby (Wood, Solano) going 1 for 6 with a double and a stolen base and Anthony Pezzola (Solano) pitching 1 1-3 innings, giving up a hit, a run and a walk.

East Central (10-10) won two of three from Harding as Nick Spini (Armijo, Solano) went 2 for 12.

Zack Welz (Solano) was 2 for 11 with three walks as Texas Southern (5-12) went 0-4, including being swept in a three-game series by Louisiana-Lafayette.

Bellevue (10-5-2) endured 5-5 and 9-9 ties – both with Wagner – in going 5-0-2 for the week. Aaron Brasher (Solano) batted .286 (6 for 21) with a double, three runs and two RBIs. In the latter tie, the Bruins coughed up a 9-0 lead by giving up eight runs in the seventh inning.

The UC Santa Barbara softball team (15-5 ) went 4-0 in the Nevada Classic and Andriana Collins (Rodriguez) had a hand in three of the victories. The left-hander fired a four-hit shutout in a 4-0 win over Seattle, striking out four. She then closed out a 9-5 win over Seattle with a scoreless final inning before going the first five innings in a 4-2 win over Seattle, giving up five hits and two runs to improve to 6-1 on the season.

California (9-10) opened the Hawaii Spring Fling with two victories before dropping its final three games. Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) went 3 for 8 with a double and two runs scored, while Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) was 2 for 9 with a solo home run.

Oregon State won of five games in the UCLA tournament with Kiara “Ya” Garcia (Rodriguez) going 2 for 16 with three runs scored.

UC Riverside took four of seven games, including two of five in its own Highlander Classic. Marissa Escalante (Rodriguez) had a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth for the tying and go-ahead runs in a 6-5 win over Belmont, her only hit of the week.

Idaho State won three of four in the Highlander Classic with Gabby Lopez (Rodriguez) going 2 for 8, getting both hits in a 5-2 downing of San Diego.

Dana Manibusan (Solano) batted .467 (7 for 15) with six runs scored and two stolen bases as Hastings (7-1) went 4-0.

Hannah Wilbur (Solano) earned a win and a save for Oklahoma Baptist (10-6), getting the win when the Bison scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh for a 3-2 win over MidAmerica Nazarene. Wilbur allowed seven hits and two runs, one earned, striking out four and walking three. She was then touched for 11 hits and six runs against Benedictine, but pitched the final three innings of a 14-8 win to get the save.

Men’s basketball

The Alaska men’s basketball team went 1-1 in the GNAC tournament, defeating Montana State-Billings 69-59 in the quarterfinals before having its season end with a 73-52 loss to Western Washington in the semifinals.

Ronnie Baker (Rodriguez) had eight point, five assists, two steals and two rebounds in the first game, 18 points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists in the second. Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) played in both games.

Baker, an all-GNAC second team selection, was one of just two players to start all 28 games for the Nanooks (18-10) and led the team in minutes played (34.3 per game and scoring (14.6), was second in assists (2.6), steals (1.6) and 3-point shooting (.418, 41 of 98), and third in rebounding (3.9).

Allen played in all 28 games, all as a reserve, averaging 2.5 points in 11.2 minutes per game.

Hawaii Pacific (15-13) split a pair of games in the PacWest tournament, defeating Dixie State 71-65 and losing to Dominican 83-69 to finish over .500 for the first time since the 2009-10 season.

Koree Cox (Rodriguez) played in 16 games for the Sea Warriors, averaging 1.9 points in 5.1 minutes per game.

Jazmine Miller (Vanden), who was named to the all-CCAA first team, had 13 points, four assists and three rebounds in the setback.

Salonika Quewon-Owens (Armijo, Solano) amassed 18 points, six rebounds, one block and one assist, but it wasn’t enough to keep Dominican (9-18) from having its season end with a 99-86 overtime loss to Dixie State in the PacWest tournament. Quewon-Owens got into all 27 games for the Penguins, starting 21, and led the team with 13.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game, finishing second in minutes (29.6) and assists (1.9).

San Diego State (12-16, 9-9 MWC) closed the regular season by edging UNLV 64-63 and losing to New Mexico 62-46. Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) had 11 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in the first game, 10 points and four rebounds in the second.

Needing a win in its season finale to get into the Big West tournament, UC Riverside fell 89-81 to Long Beach State. Earlier the Highlanders (6-23, 2-14) fell 78-52 to UC Davis. Tahvia Morrison (Vanden) had a combined five points and three rebounds in the two games and finished the season by averaging 1.8 points and 1.0 rebounds per outing, getting into 21 games, three starts.
