Cal St Fullerton Beats Illinois
FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -- Tyler Pill struck out a career-high 11 in eight innings and had a two-run single in the sixth inning to give Cal State Fullerton the lead in the Titans' 10-4 victory over Illinois on Friday night in the NCAA Fullerton Regional.

After Illinois (28-26) tied it at 4 on Casey McMurray's sixth-inning single, the Titans (41-15) regained the lead in the bottom of the inning on Pill's single.

On the mound, Pill (7-1) limited Illinois to four runs on five hits.
Illinois starter Kevin Johnson (2-7) took the loss.
Matt Dittman hit a two-run homer for the Illini in the second.

After tying it at 2 in the fourth on Ivory Thomas' two-run single, the Titans took a 4-2 lead in the fifth on Carlos Lopez's RBI double and Greg Velazquez's run-scoring single.

Fullerton will face Stanford, a 10-3 winner over Kansas State, on Saturday. Illinois will play Kansas State in an elimination game.
