Box Score

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - Behind a hit parade of 16 Torero hits, and a dominating pitching performance from Calvin Drummond, the University of San Diego baseball team (1-0) opened the up the 2012 season with a 5-3 win over Sam Houston State(0-1) Friday evening.

Drummond (1-0) carved up the Bearkats bats, as she punched out a career-high 10 batters, while allowing two runs, one earned, on five hits in 5.2 innings of work. Michael Wagner came in with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning and just picked up where Drummond left off. Wagner only allowed one run on two hits, while striking out five in 3.1 innings of work, while picking up the save.

Offensively for the Toreros, Louie Lechich, Kris Bryant, and Bryan Haar all recorded three hits, while Lucas Hagberg added in a pair himself. Bryant led the offense going 3-for-4 with a double, while Lechich Haar both went 3-for-5.

The Bearkats were able to get on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across one run on three hits in the bottom of the first inning. The Sam Houston State run came on a Jessie Plumlee sacrifice fly to centerfield, which scored Colt Atwood, who had singled to second base, to give the home team a 1-0 lead.

The Toreros finally broke into the scoring column in the top of the top of the fourth inning, scoring one run on two hits. Haar got things going, as he singled to centerfield, and the very next batter, Hagberg, doubled in Haar to even the score at 1-1.

In the top of the fifth inning, USD continued to roll offensively as they scored two runs on four hits. Andrew Daniel got things started with an infield single, and he moved to second on a Lechich single to right field. Bryant then loaded the bases with a single through the left side, and Dillon Checkal then singled in both Daniel and Lechich to give USD a 3-1 advantage.

 

 

After the Bearkats took back a run in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Toreros would answer back with one run in each of the seventh and eighth innings to round of USD's scoring for the day. Sam Houston State managed to score one more run in the bottom of the ninth to put the game at its final of 5-3.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. as they continue this three-game series with the Bearkats.
