SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team completed a double-header sweep over Northern Kentucky University Saturday evening with a 12-0 non-conference win at Fowler Park.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 5-1 overall, and have now managed to score double digit runs in four consecutive games, tying the program record for this statistic. With the loss, the Norse fall to 1-6 overall.

San Diego wasted no time in scoring, as they pushed across four runs on five hits in the bottom of the first inning. Back-to-back singles by Austin Bailey and Louie Lechich set the table for the Toreros. After both runners moved up one base on a wild pitch, Connor Joe stepped to the plate and unleashed a three-run homer over the left center field fence to give USD a 3-0 lead. Andrew Daniel kept things going with a single, and he moved to second on a Troy Conyers groundout. Hunter Mercado-Hood then drove in Daniel with an RBI single to cap the scoring for the inning.

USD then tacked on a pair of runs in the bottom of the second when Lechich reached on a fielder's choice, which scored Bailey, who was hit by a pitch. And the second run came on a fielding error to give USD a 6-0 lead.

USD never looked back, as they went on to score two more runs in the bottom of the fourth, three in the six, one in the seventh

Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way, as he went a perfect 4-for-4 with a home run, a double and five RBI.

Lechich (2-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on eight hits, while striking out six in 6.0 innings of work. Lechich finished his outing by retiring 12 of his final 14 batters between the third and sixth innings. NKU's Aric Harris (0-2) was saddled with the loss for the Norse, as he allowed eight runs on 10 hits in 4.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Sunday at 1 p.m. as they conclude this series with the Norse at Fowler Park.
