Former Cal State Northridge slugger Eric Gillespie languished on the bench during Lake Elsinore's California League opener Thursday night, but he should be in the lineup soon. Gillespie hit 22 home runs as a first baseman in the lower Class-A Midwest League last season, but has been switched to third base, the position he played as a Northridge junior in 1996. Greg Morris, who started at third Thursday, is beginning his third season at Lake Elsinore and at 26 is not considered a prospect.

On a team full of potent hitters, Grant Hohman is often taken for granted. The senior infielder says little, plays wherever he is asked, and usually bats fourth or fifth in the Cal State Northridge lineup, following sluggers Adam Kennedy, Eric Gillespie and Robert Fick. Hohman had three hits and drove in a run in the Matadors' 8-2 victory over Pepperdine in a nonconference game Tuesday at Eddie D. Field Stadium. He doubled and played flawlessly at third base, his third position this week.

When Eric Gillespie was playing Little League baseball as a 10-year-old, a relative somehow caught him on film wearing full catcher's gear. Tools of the trade? A trade of the tools for his infielder's glove quickly was made. A few horrific, fleeting moments behind the plate were enough. Not so remarkably, Gillespie pulled up lame after his first inning at catcher. Rather, he pulled up with a lame excuse. Find another volunteer, he said. "I hated it," Gillespie said.

WEST Cal State Northridge 18, Northeastern Illinois 1--Eric Gillespie hit his 22nd and 23rd homers of the season and Jason Cole pitched a six-hitter for the Matadors, who shed the memory of a humiliating loss to Stanford by eliminating Northeastern Illinois at Palo Alto.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo geared up for the fastballs Northridge left-hander Erasmo Ramirez threw past them in a victory six weeks ago, but Ramirez downshifted Thursday with pitches slower and slowest to baffle SLO. Ramirez struck out 10 and walked one while pitching the host Matadors to a 9-5 victory in a Western Athletic Conference game. The Matadors (33-6, 12-2 in conference play) have won 11 in a row. "My changeup was really on," Ramirez said.
