Irvine Valley came right back in the top of the second and tied the game on an RBI single to center by sophomore third baseman Adam Vargas. The hit scored freshman first baseman Lucas Tancas, who singled through the right side to lead off the inning.
The game stayed that way until the bottom of the fifth when Fullerton scored two runs, including one an error, to go up, 3-1.
The Hornets tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the seventh for a 5-1 lead.
Garrett Basehart was 3 for 4 and Heredia went 2 for 3 with three RBI for Fullerton, which finished with 11 hits in the game.
