Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's baseball team bounced back from their first loss in six games with a 5-4 victory over the No. 22 ranked Cal Ploy Mustangs Friday afternoon.

The Mustangs (7-3) got on the board first in the third inning on Jimmy Allen's double to left center, which plated Tim Wise all the way from first base after an infield single for the 1-0 lead.

Mustangs starting pitcher Joey Wagman (2-1) entered the game with a 0.60 ERA and kept the Toreros hitters off-balance through the first four innings, allowing just one hit by changing speeds effectively.

The Toreros (7-3) got even in the bottom of the fifth. Catcher Dillon Haupt reached base to lead off the inning after getting hit by a pitch. Shortstop Andrew Daniel's bat stayed hot with an RBI double down the left field line to make the score 1-1.

The San Diego bats exploded in the bottom of the sixth for four runs on four hits and one error. Corey LeVier led off the inning with a double to right center. Haupt eventually doubled to left center to score LeVier and send AJ Robinson to third base, to put the Toreros up 2-1. Daniel came through again in the clutch with a double to left field to score Haupt and Robinson for the 4-1 lead. Julian Duran then put the ball in play to Mustangs second baseman Evan Busby, who committed a throwing error that allowed Robinson to come around and score for the 5-1 advantage.

Toreros starting pitcher Calvin Drummond (3-0) gave up back-to-back infield hits to start the seventh frame, which set the stage for Mustangs left fielder Mitch Haniger's three-run home run to cut the San Diego lead to 5-4.

 

 

James Pazos came on in 1.2 innings of relief, followed by Michael Wagner's fifth save of the season to preserve the win for Drummond and the Toreros.

Drummond improved to 3-0 on the season in 6.1 innings of work, allowing four runs on 10 hits. Wagman was saddled with his first loss of the season, allowing 4 runs on seven hits in 5.1 innings of work.

The Toreros were led offensively by Daniel, who went 2-for-3 with three RBI and one run scored. Haupt was a tough out all afternoon, reaching base in all but one of his plate appearances and finishing 1-for-2 with two runs scored and one RBI. Bryan Haar chipped in with two hits.

The Toreros get a chance at revenge against CSU Northridge tomorrow at 11 a.m., followed by a 10 a.m. game against Milwaukee Sunday morning to conclude the SDSU Invitational.
