SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 12th-ranked Oklahoma State University baseball team scored six unanswered runs to come-from-behind and defeat No. 24 University of San Diego, 6-5, Friday afternoon in the baseball series opener at Reynolds Stadium
With the loss, the Toreros have now dropped three consecutive games, as they fall to 8-4 overall. With the win, the Cowboys improve to 11-2 overall.
The Toreros wasted no time in scoring as they managed to push across five runs on four hits in the top of the first inning. Connor Joe got things started with a single, and he advanced to third on an Andrew Daniel double. Jesse Jenner then hit a two-run single up the middle to give USD its first two runs of the game. Jenner then advanced to second on a passed ball, and Brandon DeFazio drew a walk. Josh Goossen-Brown then unleashed a three-run homer to left field to cap the scoring for the inning, giving USD a 5-0 lead.
USD starting pitcher PJ Conlon then kept the Cowboy hitters off balance over the first 3.1 innings of the game, taking a no-hitter with the fourth. Then the second batter Conlon faced, Donnie Walton, broke up the no-no with a RBI double to left field. The Cowboys then went on to score three more runs in the fourth on a Dustin Williams RBI single, and a 2-run Conor Castello home run, to cut the Toreros lead down to one at 5-4.
OSU continued their rally and took the lead in the bottom of the eighth by scoring a pair of runs on USD fielding error, and a Fish RBI single to move the score to 6-5.
In the top of the ninth, USD put on their rally caps and went to work. With one out, Daniel laced a double down the left field line to put the tying run at second. Ben Wylly then walked, and Daniel stole third. Wylly then advanced to second, to put the go-ahead run at second and tying run just 90 feet away at third base. But this is as close as USD would get, as they left the two runners stranded, thus ending the game with a 6-5 final.
Offensively for the Toreros, Daniel led the way, as he went 3-for-5 with two doubles, and one run scored.
CJ Burdick (0-1) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on one hit in 0.2 innings of work. OSU's Brendan McCury (1-0) was credited with the win, as he allowed no runs on one hit in 1.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action later this evening, as they play the second half of a double-header with Oklahoma State. First pitch is schedule for 4:30 p.m.
