Box Score

PROVO, Utah - The 25th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team pulled away late to claim a 5-1 win over Brigham Young University Friday evening in a West Coast Conference game at Miller Park.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 13-4 overall, move to 2-0 in the WCC, claim the WCC opening series over BYU, and have run their winning streak to five. With the loss, the Cougars fall to 7-13 overall and 0-2 in the WCC.

With USD leading 2-1 heading into the top of the eighth inning, the Torero offense picked up the pace and went to work, scoring three runs on two hits. Ben Wylly got things started as he led off the frame getting hit by a pitch. He moved to second when Josh Goossen-Brown was also hit by a pitch. After Brandon DeFazio drew a walk to load the bases, Hunter Mercado-Hood was inserted as a pinch hitter, and hit drilled an RBI single up the middle to score Wylly. Kyle Holder then singled in Goossen-Brown with a RBI single to left field. After USD hit into a double play, Holder would steal second, and Defazio would come home on a wild pitch to put the game at its final of 5-1.

The Toreros would get on the scoreboard first, on a bases-loaded RBI walk for Andrew Daniel in the top of the third inning. BYU then took advantage of a USD fielding error to score an unearned run in the bottom of the third, and USD took the lead for good in the top of the sixth on a bases-loaded Holder RBI walk to set up the exciting top of the eighth inning.



Offensively for the Toreros, Louie Lechich led the way, as he went 2-for-4 with a double.

Troy Conyers (3-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one unearned run, on six hits in 7.1 innings of work. BYU's Barker (1-3) was saddled with the loss for the Cougars, as he allowed two runs on six hits in 6.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday, as they look to complete a sweep over BYU in a 12 p.m. game at Miller Park.
