The Legends surrendered one big inning and it was enough to propel the Crabs to an 11 to 5 win in front of a crowd of 863 at Arcata Ballpark.
The Legends took a 3 to 1 lead after scoring single runs in each of the first three innings.
Brian Haggett and Andrew Casteneda (CSU Pueblo) had rbi singles and Grant Nelson scored after hitting a double before the Crabs awoke in the 4th inning.
Starter Jacob Eichhorn was tagged for seven runs on seven hits as Brad Zimmer (USF) tripled and doubled in the inning.
DJ Sharabi allowed three more runs in the fifth on three hits. A wild pitch and an error contributed to the Crabs cause.
An error in rightfield on Chris Freeman's (De Anza College) line drive plated Nelson and Goldenberg for the final Legends tallies.
Crabs starter Drew Bradshaw (San Jose State)weaved his way through seven innings, allowing seven hits but no walks. Chad Kjemhus (Univ of Portland) pitched the final two scoreless innings.
The three game series concludes on Sunday before the Legends have their home opener at Canada on Wednesday June 13th against the NorCal Longhorns.
