The San Diego State baseball team continued to struggle in Western Athletic Conference play Wednesday, dropping a 10-1 decision to Texas El Paso in El Paso.
The victory completed a four-game sweep for the Miners, who improved to 7-9 in WAC Southern Division play. The Aztecs, who are in last place, fell to 5-11 in the division.
Chris Gwynn got SDSU started quickly Wednesday with a leadoff home run off Jim Halley in the top of the first inning. But, after that, Halley (5-7) settled down and did not allow any Aztec runs, despite giving up 10 hits.
Meanwhile, UTEP rallied behind the hot bat of designated hitter Greg Walkup. Walkup, who hit three home runs in UTEP's doubleheader sweep Tuesday, smacked a three-run homer in Wednesday' game.
