Freshman Debuts

The Riverside, California, native has appeared six times for the Bruins out of the bullpen this season, including a season best 3.1 inning outing against Cal State Fullerton during a 14-4 loss on March 6. Freshman right-hander Brian Stevens (0-0, 3.18) will be making his first career start for the Titans.

Savage Nearing Career Victory No. 100
