NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The University of San Diego baseball team (11-4) saw its five-game winning streak come to an end with a 7-0 loss to Vanderbilt University Friday afternoon in a non-conference game at Hawkins Field.
The Commodores (5-8) were able to push across two runs in the bottom of the first inning. The Vanderbilt runs came on a USD fielding error, which scored Anthony Gomez, who had singled, and a Chris Harvey ground out to the first baseman, which scored Mike Yastrzmeski, who also singled.
USD then settled down and held the Vanderbilt bats at bay for the next six innings, before the Commodores were able to push across three runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth to put the game at its final of 7-0.
USD twice was able to get a runner to second base, but both times, USD was unable to manufacture those runs, leaving USD scoreless for the first time this season.
Offensively for the Toreros, Corey LeVier led the way as he went 2-for-3.
Calvin Drummond (3-1) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed four runs, two earned, on six hits in 6.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will resume this three-game set with Vanderbilt on Saturday with a 12 p.m. game at Hawkins Field.
