San Diego State baseball started the season on a down note, being swept by No. 9 University of Oregon last weekend at Tony Gwynn Stadium.

Head coach Mark Martinez said Monday that it was the little things that led to the Aztecs’ rocky start.

The team was either tied, or trailed by one run, in two out of the three losses. Sophomore Alan Trejo had a nice opening to his season, going 4-for-13 with an RBI in the three-game set, while also throwing a scoreless inning in relief Sunday.

Despite the 0-3 start to the season, Martinez was able to find some silver lining.

“It’s a great gauge for is,” he said. “We feel like we are a program on the cusp of being a national-type program.”

The Aztecs begin their busy week 6 p.m. Tuesday at UC Irvine, then travel to Lake Elsinore Thursday to take on University of San Diego and finish out the week with potentially three games at the first annual Tony Gwynn Classic.
