AUSTIN, Texas (KXRM) — Jake Greiving hit home runs in back-to-back at-bats and was one of five Air Force hitters with at least two hits in the Falcons’ 9-7 win over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in an Austin Regional elimination game Sunday afternoon.
Greiving and Gabriel Garcia each had three hits, with the latter smashing a solo home run in the top of the fifth.
Trayden Tamiya had four hits for Air Force (32-28), including an RBI double.
Mountain West Player of the Year Sam Kulasingam, who had three hits on the day, came through with a go-ahead two-run single in the sixth inning to help the Falcons overcome a 4-0 deficit to take a 5-4 lead.
The two teams went back and forth in the sixth through eighth innings, combining for six home runs throughout the game.
Air Force will play Texas at 6 p.m. Sunday. The Falcons must beat the Longhorns twice in order to advance to the Super Regionals, while Texas needs just one more victory.
Air Force was limited to one run in what turned out to be its final game of the 2022 season. Braydon Altorfer hit a home run in the ninth inning in a 10-1 loss to the Texas Longhorns, who advance to the NCAA Super Regionals.
The Falcons finish with a program-record 32 victories.
