MESA, Ariz. — Justin Dillon improved to 4-1 on the season after seven-innings of one-run ball over the weekend to pitch Sacramento State over CSU Bakersfield 3-1 in Western Athletic Conference Tournament baseball action.

The victory allowed the Hornets (39-22), who dropped their opener to Bakersfield last Thursday, to stay in the hunt for the tournament title which they ended up winning Sunday — advancing to the program’s first Division I NCAA Regional Tournament.

Dillon, a freshman out of El Dorado, allowed six hits, struck out three and walked one. He missed all of 2013 with an arm injury that required surgery. This season, he struck out 25 batters and has an ERA of 3.23.

Sac State, the WAC regular season champs, open up Friday against host Cal Poly (45-10).

The tournament winner advances to the Super Regional June 6-9.
