WILMINGTON, N.C. - The University of San Diego baseball team was able to outlast the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, 2-0, in a 10-inning thriller Saturday afternoon at the Hughes Brothers Tournament.
With a scoreless ball game at the top of the 10th inning, USD's bats were finally able to break through the pitchers dual. Dillon Checkal led off the frame with a double down the left field line. Chris Woolley then reached on a fielding error by the third baseman, which allowed Grant Melker, who was pinch running for Checkal, to score from second for the first run of the game. Two batters later, Dillon Haupt hit a sacrifice fly to left field, which scored Woolley to put the game at its final of 2-0.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 6-4 overall, have now won four straight games and six of their last seven games. With the loss, the Seahawks fall to 5-5 overall.
USD's starting pitcher, Dylan Covey, was dominating yet again, in a no-decision. The Pasadena, Calif. native allowed no runs, while scattering five hits, and striking out a career-high 12 batters in 6.0 innings of work. USD's third pitcher of the Day, Trevor Bayless (1-0), picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.1 innings of work. Max Homick picked up his first save of the season, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 0.2 innings of work. UNCW's Justin Livingwood (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Seahawks, as he allowed two runs on four hits in 2.2 innings of work.
Offensively for the Toreros, Woolley led the way, as he went 2-for-4 with one run scored.
USD will conclude their four-game East Coast road swing on Sunday with a 11 a.m. game against 2012 College World Series participant, Stony Brook University.
