Matusz's Gem Leads USD to 3-1 Win Over Cross-Town Rival SDSU

March 10, 2006

Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Freshman Brian Matusz threw eight innings allowing only one run to lead the University of San Diego baseball team to a 3-1 non-conference win Friday afternoon at Cunningham Stadium.

With the win the Toreros move to 10-8 overall, have now won three consecutive games and move to 4-1 at Cunningham Stadium. With the loss the Aztecs fall to 6-13 overall.

Matusz (2-1) allowed one run on three hits while striking out 10, his second highest strikeout total of the season, in eight complete innings of work. Matt Couch picked up his first save of the season allowing no runs on no hits in one inning of work.

The Toreros jumped out to the early lead in the first inning when Jordan Abruzzo grounded out to the shortstop, scoring Kevin Hansen, who had singled.

USD tacked on their final two runs in the third inning. Freshman Josh Romanski led off with a high chopper that bounced over the head of the pitcher, allowing Romanski to beat the throw out to first. After Justin Snyder moved Romanski to second on a single, each base runner advanced one base on a wild pitch. Hansen then hit a two-run double to left field giving USD all the runs they would need moving the score to 3-0.

SDSU spoiled the shutout for the Toreros in the eighth inning on a Nick Romero sacrifice fly to right field.

Hansen led the USD offense going 3-for-4 with two RBI and one double.

Justin Masterson (2-3) was saddled with the loss for the Aztecs allowing three runs on eight hits in 8.0 innings of work.

 

 

The Toreros and Aztecs will return to action on Saturday evening at Tony Gwynn Stadium on the campus of San Diego State in a 6 p.m. non-conference game.
