Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 24th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team evened its series with No. 12 Oklahoma State University, after claiming a 10-6 win Friday evening in the nightcap of a double-header at Reynolds Stadium.

With the win, the Toreros have now snapped their three-game losing skid, as they improve to 9-4 overall. With the loss, the Cowboys fall to 11-3 overall.

For the second consecutive game, San Diego jumped out to an early lead, as they managed to score four runs in the top of the first inning. Austin Bailey led off the game with a walk, and Louie Lechich then tripled to left centerfield to score Bailey. Connor Joe kept the hit parade going, as he doubled in Lechich, then moved to third on a wild pitch. Next, the fourth consecutive batter to step to the plate, Andrew Daniel, recorded the fourth straight Torero hit, a single through the left side to score Joe. After Daniel moved up one base on a wild pitch, Hunter Mercado-Hood would reach on a fielding error, which also allowed Daniel to move to third. Ben Wylly then singled in Daniel to give USD a 4-0 lead.

Oklahoma State then got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth inning, as they scored three runs to cut the deficit to one. The OSU runs came on a wild pitch, a USD fielding error, and a fielder's choice, to move the score to 4-3.

San Diego then responded in the top of the fifth inning, scoring a pair of runs on a Daniel sacrifice fly to centerfield, which scored Lechich, who had doubled. The second run came on a Mercado-Hood groundout to the first baseman, which scored Joe, who had doubled, to give USD a 6-3 lead.



The Toreros would then add on four runs in the top of the ninth, while OSU scored one run in the bottom of the ninth, to put the game at its final of 10-6.

Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way, as he went 4-for-5 with two RBI, while Lechich also had a productive day at the plate, going 3-for-4 with one RBI.

Troy Conyers (2-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he completely dominated the opposing batters. Conyers, allowed three runs, two earned, while surrendering only one hit. Thomas Hatch (2-2) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Cowboys, as he allowed six runs on eight hits in 6.1 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they conclude this three-game series with an 11 a.m. game at Reynolds Field.
