Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Junior two-way star Josh Romanski's three-run homer over the right field fence in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted the 12th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (3-3) to a thrilling 3-2 win over Cal Poly (2-3) in the first game of a double-header Friday afternoon at Cunningham Stadium.

With the Toreros trailing 2-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, the Toreros began to rally. Kevin Muno got things started with a single to the shortstop. After Muno stole second, Sean Nicol singled to second base to move Muno to third. That set the stage for Romanski, who turned on a pitch and rocketed the ball over the right field fence to give USD a 3-2 win.

Cal Poly was able to score first, as a Luke Yoder solo home run over the left field fence gave the Mustangs an early advantage. The second Cal Poly run came in the top of the sixth inning on a Pat Pazet RBI single through the left side, which scored Wes Dorrell, who reached on an error.

Offensively for the Toreros, both Muno and Kevin Hansen went 2-for-3 and Nicol was the only other player to record multiple hits with a 2-for-4 performance.

Sammy Solis (1-0) picked up his first collegiate win as he allowed no runs on one hit in 2.0 innings of work. All-American closer AJ Griffin picked up his second save in as many games as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work. Cal Poly's Eric Massingham looked impressive on the hill for the Mustangs as he was saddled with the loss allowed three runs on seven hits in 8.0 innings of work.



The Toreros will return to action at 2 p.m. as they host Fresno State in a non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium.
