SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 12th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team was upset by the University of California Golden Bears, 5-0, Sunday afternoon in a non-conference game at USD's Cunningham Stadium.
With the loss, the Toreros fall to 5-4 overall and saw their four-game winning streak come to an end. With the win, the Golden Bears improve to 5-1-1 overall.
The game began as a pitchers dual between USD's Kyle Blair and Cal's Alex Rollin. Then Cal was able to get to Blair in the fourth inning putting up two runs on one hit. The Cal runs came on a throwing error by USD and a bases loaded walk to give the Golden Bears a 2-0 lead.
Cal then added to their lead in the top of the seventh inning on a Brett Jackson RBI groundout and the Bears then put the game out of reach in the ninth inning on a two-run homer from Josh Satin to put the game at its final of 5-0.
USD had its best scoring opportunity come in the fourth inning. Victor Sanchez led off the inning with a walk and he moved to second on a balk. After a Kevin Hansen walk, Sanchez then moved to third on a wild pitch and Blake Tagmyer loaded the bases on a walk with two outs, but USD could not push a run across.
Blair (0-2) was saddled with the loss for the Toreros as he allowed two runs on five hits in 6.0 innings of work. Daniel Wolford (1-0) was credited with the win for Cal as he allowed no runs on two hits in 4.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday as they head up to Orange Country to take on UC Irvine in a 6 p.m. non-conference game.
