Box Score

Five different Toreros drove in runs during a 5-1 victory over No. 23 Washington Friday afternoon at USD's Cunningham Stadium. San Diego's senior starter RH Aaron Wilson improved to 3-1 on the season and saw his season ERA drop to 2.22, striking out five Huskies through six complete innings. Classmate RH Tom Caple picked up his first save of the year, setting down the side via strikeouts in the ninth.

Washington (0-1) went ahead 1-0 after shortstop Brent Lillibridge took a full-count offering from Wilson over the right field wall to lead off the game. Washington remained scoreless the rest of the way as Wilson scattered five hits, eventually giving way to the bullpen combination of Caple and Torero freshman RH Josh Butler.

Trailing in the bottom half of the fifth San Diego (4-6) pushed across three runs off Huskie starter RH Richie Lentz. Walks issued by Lentz to both Caple and Gavin Ng to lead off the USD fifth allowed Joey Prast to take advantage of an RBI opportunity, singling home Caple to even the score at one. Lentz was pulled in favor of senior LH Trent Baysinger. With Ng now on third base and Prast at first, both runners belonging to Lentz, Freddy Sandoval hit an RBI sacrifice fly to center to give USD a 2-1 lead, leaving Lentz (0-1) as the pitcher of record for Washington. Josh Hansen completed the three-run inning for USD with an RBI single to left field.

Josh Butler worked two innings in relief of Wilson, striking out four, before giving way to Caple after two batters in the ninth. On the day the Torero staff combined to fan 12 Huskie batters without allowing a walk. Prast was 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Freshmen Jordan Abruzzo and Keoni Ruth each drove in runs and scored during a two-run Torero seventh inning that extended the USD advantage to 5-1.
