Box Score

MYRTLE BEACH S.C. - Behind a 15-hit offensive output, the University of San Diego baseball team cruised to an 8-3 win over Coastal Carolina University Thursday evening in a non-conference game at Field.

With the win, the Toreros improve to .500 at 4-4 overall, and have now won four of their last five games. With the loss, the Chanticleers fall to 3-4, and have now lost three consecutive games.

The Toreros got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to score four runs on five hits in the top of the third inning. Dillon Checkal led off the frame with a single to right field, and he moved to second on a Chris Woolley groundout to the second baseman. Checkal then moved to third on a wild pitch, and with a pair of outs, Dillon Haupt drove in Checkal with a RBI single. AJ Robinson kept things going as he singled to first base, which also allowed Haupt to move to second. Andrew Daniel then doubled in both Haupt and Robinson and the final run came on a Connor Joe RBI single to give USD the early 4-0 lead.

USD then tacked on two more runs in the top of the fifth inning, as Woolley launched his first home run of the season, a solo shot to left field. Back-to-back doubles by Kris Bryant and Haupt then gave USD 6-0 lead.

After USD scored one more run in the top of the seventh on an Austin Green sacrifice fly to centerfield, scoring Robinson, who had singled, the Chanticleers were able to put up three runs in the bottom of the seventh to pull to within four runs. The CCU runs came on a Jacob May RBI single, a back-to-back bases-loaded walks by Colin Hering and Chris Suseck to move the score to 7-3 in favor of the Toreros.



USD would then manage to add one more run in the top of the ninth on a Green sacrifice fly to left field, capping their scoring for the day.

Offensively for the Toreros, Woolley led the way, as he went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI. Five other Toreros recorded at least two hits this evening as well.

PJ Conlon (2-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on two hits in 2.1 innings of work. CCU's starter, Tyler Herb, was saddled with the loss for the Chanticleers, as he allowed six runs on 10 hits in 4.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday at 12 p.m., as they take on Gardner-Webb University. This will be the opening game of the Hughes brothers Challenge, hosted by the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.
