Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 11th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team was stunned with a 7-6 loss in eight innings to Santa Clara University in the first game of the Aztec Invitational Thursday afternoon.

Santa Clara pushed across the wining run in the eighth inning when Glenn scored an unearned run on a throwing error by USD. After the Toreros batted in the eighth inning, the umpires called the game on the account of darkness, so the Toreros never got a chance to bat in the ninth inning, although there appeared to be plenty of light.

USD broke its 20 innings scoring drought in the first inning as they pushed across one run on one hit. Sean Nicol led off the inning with a single to right field and he advanced to second on a balk. Victor Sanchez then drove in Nicol on a groundout to the shortstop to give USD a 1-0 lead.

After SCU tied things up in the second, they exploded for five runs on six hits in the third to take a commanding 6-1 lead.

USD would take back one run in the third on a Josh Romanski ground out and USD would tie things up in the fifth as they scored four runs on four hits.

In the fifth inning, Kevin Muno got things rolling with a single up the middle and he then stole second. After a Nicol walk, Muno stole third and Romanski drove in both runners with a two-run double to right field. Sanchez then pushed across the next two runs with a two-run homer over the left field fence to tie things up at 6-6.

Offensively for the Toreros, Muno led the way as he went a perfect 3-for-3 and also stole three bases. Nicol was also impressive on the day as he went 2-for-2.

Matt Thompson (0-1) was saddled wit the loss for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on one hit in 3.0 innings of work. Simon (2-0) was credited with the win for the Broncos as eh allowed no runs on one hit.



The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they host Oklahoma State University in a 2 p.m. game at USD's Cunningham Stadium.
