GRAND JUNCTION - Brent Lamaster was an ace on the mound for the Mesa State Mavericks in a 9-0 win over Colorado-Mines on Thursday night.

Lamaster hurled a complete game shutout, allowing only three hits in the win.

The purple clad Mavs improve to 31-5 on the season and have now won 13 straight games. Each Mavs player each wore purple Mesa State baseball hats with the word "hope" embroidered on the back for the annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life game at Suplizio Field.

Proceeds from ticket sales went towards cancer research. The purple hats from the starting nine Mesa State players were also auctioned off along with a Mesa State batting helmet, bat, and jersey all to help with cancer research.

The Mavs will be back on the field on Friday afternoon for a double-header against the Orediggers and then will close out the four game series on Saturday.

The games on Friday begin at 3:30 p.m. and the Saturday game starts at noon.
