SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind a 17-hit offensive outburst, the University of San Diego baseball team (2-3) cruised to an 18-11 non-conference win over Kent State University (0-6) Saturday afternoon in the first game of a double-header at Fowler Park and Cunningham Field.
The Toreros wasted no time in scoring as they pushed across a pair of runs in the bottom of the first inning. The Toreros runs came on a Connor Joe RBI single and when Austin Bailey reached on a RBI fielder's choice to give USD a 2-0 lead.
Then after USD put up two runs in the second and one in the fourth, they put the game out of reach with a eight-run fifth inning. Austin Green got things going when he was hit by a pitch and moved to second on an AJ Robinson single up the middle. Green then stole second Chris Woolley drove in Green with an RBI single to right field, which also moved Robinson to third. Dillon Checkal then hit an RBI infield single to score Robinson and move Woolley to second. After Louie Lechich reached on a fielder's choice to load the bases, Kris Bryant was hit by a pitch to scored a run and leave the bases loaded. Dillon Haupt was then hit by a pitch to drive in the next run, and a Joe sacrifice fly to right scored the next run of the inning. After an Austin Bailey walk again loaded the bases, Green was hit by a pitch to drive in another run, and a Robinson RBI single drove in the seventh run of the inning. The final run came on a Woolley RBI sacrifice fly to give USD a 14-3 lead.
USD would then go on to score two runs in each of the sixth and seventh innings to round off their scoring for the day, while Kent State scored two in the fifth, four in the sixth three in the eighth and one in the ninth to put the game at its final of 18-11.
Offensively for the Toreros, Haupt led the way, as he went 2-for-2 with two double and five RBI. Both Checkal and Robinson recorded a team-best three hits on the afternoon.
Dylan Covey (1-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros three unearned runs on three hits in 5.0 innings of work. Kent State's Casey Williams (0-2) was saddled with the loss for the Golden Flashes, as he allowed six runs on six hits in 4.0 innings of work.
