HILO, HI - Freshman third baseman Victor Sanchez went 2-for-4 with two RBI and one home run to help propel the 21st-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (10-7) to a 5-0 win in seven innings over the University of Hawai'i - Hilo (7-8) in the first game of a double header Saturday afternoon.
The two teams played seven innings as an agreement by both coaching staffs prior to the start of the game because of the double header between the two today.
San Diego wasted no time in scoring as they scored four runs on four hits in the first inning. Sean Nicol led off the inning by reaching on a fielding error by the shortstop, he then moved to third on a Kevin Muno double to left field. Sanchez drove in Nicol with a RBI single to centerfield, which moved Muno to third. Muno scored the second run on a Josh Romanski RBI ground out to the third baseman. Anthony Strazzara drove in the third run with a RBI single to left field and the final run of the inning came on a James Meador run-scoring double left field to give USD a 4-0 lead.
San Diego then put the game out of reach in the second inning on Sanchez's sixth home run of the season, a solo shot over the left field fence to put the game at its final of 5-0.
Sanchez led USD's offense with his 2-for-4, two RBI and one home run performance. Both Meador and Zach Walters went 2-for-3 as the only other USD players to record multiple hits.
Brian Matusz (3-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros as he allowed no runs on five hits while striking out nine in seven complete innings of work. Davis (1-2) was saddled with the loss for Hawaii - Hilo as he allowed five runs, four earned, on eight hits in 7.0 innings of work.
