PROVO, Utah - The 25th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team pounded out a season-high 22 hits en route to a 17-8 win over Brigham Young University Saturday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at Miller Park.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 14-4 overall, complete a 3-game sweep over the Cougars, as they move to 3-0 in the WCC. USD also extends its winning streak to six. With the loss, the Cougars fall to 7-14 overall and 0-3 in the WCC.
After The Toreros pushed across a pair of runs in the top of the first inning on a Andrew Daniel RBI double, and a Austin Bailey RBI single, USD's offense would do most of its damage in the top of the second inning, scoring seven runs on seven hits. Ben Wylly got things started with a lead-off double, and he moved to third on Hunter Mercado-Hood's single. Kyle Holder then pushed across Wylly with a sacrifice fly to left field. Mercado-Hood then moved to second base on a wild pitch, and Connor Joe was hit by a pitch. Back-to-back RBI singles by Louie Lechich and Daniel scored the next two runs for USD. Troy Conyers was then walked to load the bases, and Bailey launched a 2-run double to right center field, scoring the fourth and fifth runs of the frame. RBI singles by Josh Goossen-Brown and Mercado-Hood then caped the scoring for the inning, giving USD a 9-0 lead.
USD would then go on to score two runs in the third, and four in the fourth to take a commanding 15-0 lead. BYU finally got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth inning, as they scored a pair of runs on Hayden Nielsen RBI groundout, and a wild pitch to move the score to 15-2.
USD then added two more runs in the ninth, while BYU scored six runs in the seventh to put the game at its final of 17-8.
Offensively for the Toreros, Bailey led the way, as he went 4-for-5 with a double and four RBI. Mercado-Hood also had a great day at the plate, as he too went 4-for-5, and added in one RBI. Four other Toreros recorded multiple hits in the game.
Lechich (4-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed two runs on nine hits in 5.0 innings of work. BYU starting pitcher Kolton Mahoney (2-3) was saddled with the loss for the Cougars, as he allowed nine runs on eight hits in 1.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday, when they host Washington State University in a 6 p.m. game inside the friendly confines of Fowler Park.
