SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind a dominating pitching performance from sophomore lefty Sammy Solis and a two-run homer by senior outfielder James Meador, the 18th-0ranked University of San Diego baseball team dealt cross-town rival San Diego State University a 2-0 loss Friday afternoon in a non-conference game at USD's Cunningham Stadium.
With the win, USD improves to 4-3 on the season and saw a three-game losing skid come to an end. With the loss, the Aztecs fall to 2-5 overall.
Solis (2-0) turned in his most impressive performance this season, as he allowed no runs on four hits, while striking out six batters in 6.0 innings of work. Solis struck out four of the first eight batters he faced to really set the tone for the game. Senior right-hander Matt Thomson picked up his second save of the season as he allowed no runs on two hits in 2.0 innings of work. SDSU's Bryan Crabb (0-1) was saddled with the loss as he allowed two runs on six hits in 4.0 innings of work.
USD scored the only runs of the game in the top of the third inning, as Nick McCoy led off the frame with as single up the middle. James Meador then launched his second home run of the season over the left field fence to give the Toreros all the runs they would need and put the game at its final of 2-0.
Meador led the USD offense as he went 2-for-3 with one home run, one RBI and one run scored. Zach Walters also had a solid showing at the plate as he went 2-for-4.
The Toreros and Aztecs will resume their four-game series on Saturday with a 1 p.m. game at Tony Gwynn Stadium.
