SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 12th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (0-1) dropped their season opener to cross-town rival San Diego State University (1-0), 8-1, Friday evening in front of an announced crowd of 2,015 in the first ever game inside of Fowler Park and Cunningham Field.

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. The Toreros then failed to push across any more runs, as the next batter flied out foul to the second baseman, and the final batter grounded into a double play to retire the side, and move the score to 6-1.

SDSU then added one run in each of the sixth and ninth innings to put the game at its final of 8-1.

Offensively for the Toreros, Davis led the way, as he went 3-for-3 in his Torero debut.

USD's starter, Dylan Covey (0-1), was saddled with the loss as he allowed six runs on eight hits in 3.0 innings of work. SDSU's starter, Michael Cederoth (1-0), was credited with the win, as he took a no-hitter into the fourth inning, before USD broke that up with a pair of hits. Overall, Cederoth allowed one run on four hits in 5.0 innings of work. Justin Hepner was credited with the save for the Aztecs, as he allowed no runs on two hits in 4.0 innings of work.
