San Diego State probably traveled farther than it ever will to beat United States International University Thursday.
Because of rain in San Diego, the Aztecs beat the Gulls in a doubleheader at the Padres' training complex in Yuma, Ariz., 9-1 and 9-4.
"We've already been rained out of 10 games," said Jim Dietz, SDSU coach. "That's probably an all-time record for us. It's strange to have to escape San Diego to play a baseball game. We may have to do the same thing against Long Beach State on Saturday,"
The Aztecs (10-5) had 16 hits in the first game. Deron Johnson was 2 for 4 with two RBIs, and Scott Middaugh and Steve Montejano each had two hits.
SDSU's Casey McKeon was 3 for 4 and Dick Reisgo went 2 for 2 in the second game. Steve Hill, Eric Reynolds and Dan Lopes each had two hits for the Aztecs, who had 14.
