Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team rallied back from a 3-run deficit to score four unanswered runs and claim a 4-3 non-conference win over the University of the Pacific Saturday afternoon at USD's Cunningham Stadium.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 5-2 overall, have now won four consecutive games and claim the championship of the USD Tournament. With the loss, the Tigers remain winless, as they fall to 0-8 overall.

The Tigers got on the scoreboard fist, as in the third inning they managed to score three runs on three hits. The Pacific runs came on a bases-loaded Allen Riley RBI walk, a Daniel Johnston RBI single and a Riley Drongesen RBI single to give the Tigers an early 3-0 lead.

The Toreros responded in bottom half of the third, as they scored a pair of runs on three hits. Connor Joe got things started with a single to center field. After Joe advanced to second on a wild pitch, Victor Rasor-Thompson singled to give USD runners at the corners with one out. The Tigers then drew their outfield in to play Julian Duran shallow, and Duran made them pay as he launched a two-run double to centerfield over all the outfielders heads, cutting the deficit to one at 3-2.

The two teams were then engaged in a pitchers dual over the next two and a half innings, before the Toreros found a way to score one run in the bottom of the sixth to even the score at 3-all. Bryan Haar got things started with an infield single and he moved to third on Corey LeVier's single through the right side. Andrew Daniel then drove in Haar with a RBI single to the shortstop.



In the bottom of the seventh, USD was able to take the lead, as they scored one run on a Duran RBI sacrifice squeeze bunt, which scored Dillon Haupt, who reached on an error, to give USD a 4-3 lead.

Michael Wagner then came into the game and closed things out on the mound, as he recorded his third save of the young season, allowing no runs on one hit in 2.0 innings of work. Max MacNabb (1-0) was the wining pitcher, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 0.1 innings of work. Pacific's John Prato Matthews (0-3) was saddled with the loss, as he allowed one run on three hits in 2.2 innings of work.

Offensively for the Toreros, Duran led the way as he went 2-for-3 with one double and three RBI. LeVier was the only other Torero to record multiple hits, as he went 2-for-3.

San Diego will return to action on Tuesday, as they travel to UC Riverside for a 6 p.m. non-conference game with the Highlanders at the Riverside Sports Complex.
