SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team picked up their ninth win of the season, as they defeated Milwaukee, 4-1, Sunday morning in a non-conference game at the Aztecs Classic inside of Tony Gwynn Stadium.
San Diego (9-3) got on the scoreboard first, as they scored one run on one hit in the bottom of the second. Corey LeVier got things started as he drew a walk. Dillon Haupt then moved LeVier up a base with a sacrifice bunt, and Connor Joe moved LeVier to third on a groundout to the first baseman. Julian Duran then drove in LeVier with the first hit of the game, as he laced a single to left field to give USD a 1-0 lead.
Milwaukee (3-8) then answered back in the top of the fourth inning, as they managed to score one run on two hits. The Panthers run came on a Paul Hoenecke RBI ground out to the first baseman, which scored Luke Meeter, who had singled, to even the score at 1-1.
The pitchers dual then resumed, and San Diego was finally able to get to the Milwaukee starter, as in the bottom of the seventh inning, as the Toreros scored two runs on two hits. With two outs, Haupt got things started with a single. Joe then unleashed a towering home run to left field to give USD a 3-1 lead.
The Toreros then added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth on a Kris Bryant RBI single through the left side, scoring Victor Rasor-Thompson, who was pinch running, to put the game at its final of 4-1.
Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way as he went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.
James Pazos (2-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on two hits in 3.1 innings of work. Michael Wagner came on to pick up his sixth save of the season, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 0.1 innings of work. Mike Schnider (0-3) was saddled with the loss for the Panthers as he allowed four runs on four hits in 7.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday as they head to Nashville, Tenn. to take on Lipscomb in a 12 p.m. game.
