SOLEDAD — Soledad High alum Eric Segura moves to 2-0 after his second career win against North Dakota State.

In his third start of the college baseball season, the former Aztec has helped produce three wins for the nationally ranked Oregon State Beavers this season. After his first start, where he got a “no decision,” Segura has received the run support he needs to pick up two wins in his last two outings.

So far Segura is 2-0 with an ERA just over 3.

In his first career win, he had to face off against a team that has the fifth-best win percentage in all of college baseball — the Oklahoma State Cowboys — while at Globe Life Field, the home of the Texas Rangers.

Just like in his first outing, Segura would go five strong innings, but this time he would set a career high with seven strikeouts in the team’s 8-1 win.

In the win against Oklahoma State, he went five innings, only giving up one run and four hits.

In his third start of the season, Segura was able to make his home regular season debut against North Dakota State. During the first four innings, he kept the Bison offense to only one.

Segura was able to command all of his pitches, as he did not allow a walk in the game. The Beavers would pick up the win, 13-7, as Segura moves to 2-0 on the season.

Based on Segura’s pitching schedule, his next possible time on the mound will be Sunday against California State University, Northridge (CSUN).
