Sophomore Caitlin Brooks tossed a one-hitter to lead Sacramento State to a 3-0 win over Weber State in the first game of a Big Sky Conference softball doubleheader Friday at Shea Stadium, Sac State reported.

The second game was stopped in the middle of the 15th inning because of darkness and will be resumed today at noon.

Weber State (7-31, 2-8) scored three times in the top of the 15th to lead 6-3. The game will be resumed with Lauren Blair leading off the bottom of the inning for Sac State (19-15, 4-3). It's the longest game in Sac State's Division I history (1990-present), surpassing the Hornets' 2-1 home victory over Utah in 13 innings in 1993.


• The host Sac State men and women were tied for second place after the second day of the three-day Mondo Mid-Major Invitational.

BYU led the men with 44 points. The Hornets had 38, and UC Davis was fifth among eight teams with 17 points. Utah State paced the women with 38 points. Sac State had 36, and the Aggies were fourth among eight teams with 24 1/2. UCD freshman Praise Adesida won the women's discus with a personal best throw of 154 feet, 7 inches, the school reported.

• Tanner Rust hit a walk-off single to give the host New Mexico State baseball team (19-15, 5-5 Western Athletic Conference) a 5-4 win over Sac State (19-15, 5-5), the league reported.

• Steven Patterson went 3 for 4, but the UC Davis baseball team (11-20, 0-7 Big West Conference) lost 9-2 at Long Beach State (14-18, 4-3), according to UCD.

• At No. 120, Marek Marksoo became the fourth Sac State men's tennis player ever to earn a national singles ranking, the school reported.
