NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Behind a dominating pitching performance from senior right-hander Paul Sewald, the University of San Diego baseball team (12-4) evened its series with Vanderbilt University (5-9) Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 win at Hawkins Field.
Sewald (2-0) was almost unhittable in Saturday's win, as he scattered five hits, allowed one run, while striking out eight batters in 6.0 innings of work. Michael Wagner came in and picked up his nation-leading eighth save of the season, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work. Vanderbilt starter Drew VerHagen (2-1) was saddled with the loss for the Commodores, as he allowed two runs on five hits in 5.2 innings of work.
San Diego wasted no time in scoring, as in the top of the second inning, they scored their only two runs of the game on two hits. Bryan Haar got things rolling as he was hit by a pitch. AJ Robinson then drew a walk and an Andrew Daniel single to left field loaded the bases. Dillon Haupt then launched a two-run double to left center to give USD a 2-0 lead.
The Commodores then took back a run in the bottom of the third inning, as they scored one run on three hits. The Vanderbilt run came on a Connor Gregor RBI single through the left side, scoring Tony Kemp, who had singled, to put the game at its final of 2-1.
Offensively for the Toreros, Haupt led the way as he went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI. Daniel also had a productive day at the plate, as he went 2-fof-4.
The Toreros and Commodores will play a rubber game on Sunday at 11 a.m. at Hawkins Field.
