SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of New Mexico baseball (1-1) team outlasted the University of San Diego, 3-2, in 11 innings Saturday evening in a non-conference game at Fowler Park.
With the score knotted at 2-all, and heading into the top of the 11th inning, UNM managed to score one run on a RBI fielder's choice to give the Lobos the victory.
The Lobos got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to push across one run in the top of the first inning on a Alex Real RBI single down the right field line, which scored Aaron Siple, who has walked, to give UNM an early 1-0 lead.
The two teams then engaged in a pitchers dual, as neither team was able to manage many hits. The Lobos staring pitcher Colton Thompson was able to hold USD hitless through five innings. Then after UNM scored their second run in the top of the sixth, Kyle Holder broke up the no-no bid with a single through the right side. Grant Melker then drew a walk to move Holder to second. After each runner moved up a base on a wild pitch, Louie Lechich drove in Holder with an RBI groundout to the second baseman, to cut the lead in half at 2-1.
Then in the bottom of the ninth inning, USD (1-1) put on their rally caps, and the very first pitch Andrew Daniel saw, he sent over the left field fence to force extra innings.
Offensively for the Toreros, Daniel and Lechich led the way, as they each went 1-for-4 with an RBI, and Daniel had one home run.
Wes Judish (0-1) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on one hit in 2.0 innings of work. UNM's AJ Carman (1-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Lobos, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 2.0 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they play New Mexico in a rubber game at Fowler Park. First pitch is schedule for 1 p.m.
