The Aztecs wasted no time in scoring, as they managed to push across a pair of runs int he first inning to grab the early momentum. The SDSU runs came on pair of run-scoring doubles by Tim Zier and Bead Haynal.
The Aztecs then pushed across one run in the top of the second on a Zeir RBI single, and then aded in one in the top of the third on a Matt Munoz RBI single to one the score to 4-0.
Then after the after the Aztecs tacked on two more runs in the top of the fourth inning, USD was able to spoil the shutout in the bottom of the fifth inning, as they scored one run on two hits. Austin Green got things started as he was hit by a pitch. Logan Davis then singled through the right side, which moved Green to second. After Dillon Checkal drew a walk to load the bases, Connor Joe pushed across the lone Torero run on a RBI single to right center field, which left the bases loaded an no outs.
