A career day from catcher Connor Burns helped the Long Beach State Dirtbags beat UC Santa Barbara 7-3 on Mother’s Day to take the Big West Conference series on Bohl Diamond at Blair Field.

Burns went 3-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and three runs scored. It’s the first multi-homer game of his career and moves him into a tie for the team-lead with 12 home runs on the season.

The Dirtbags visit rival Cal State Fullerton next weekend, and then host UC Davis to finish the regular season.
