HILO, HI - James Meador went 4-for-5 with one double and one RBI to help lead the 21st-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (11-7) to a 4-2 win over the University of Hawaii - Hilo (7-9) Saturday evening to complete a double-header sweep in non-conference action.
For the second consecutive game, the Toreros got on the score board in the first inning. Sean Nicol led off the game with a single and he moved to second on a pass ball. Nicol then advanced to third on a Kevin Muno sacrifice bunt and two batters later, Anthony Strazzara pushed across Nicol with a RBI single through the right side to give USD a brief 1-0 lead.
Hawaii - Hilo then answered back in their half of the inning as they scored one run on three hits. The UHH run came on a Higa single up the middle to score Trias, who had singled to tie things up at 1-1.
UHH then forced extra innings in the bottom of the ninth inning, as Satele hit a solo home run over the left field fence.
USD would then score two runs in the top of the 10th inning to seal the victory. Muno led off the frame with a walk and he advanced to second on a Sanchez groundout to the third baseman. After UHH intentionally walked Anthony Strazzara, Meador made them pay with a RBI single to left field and on the same play UHH committed a fielding error to allow Strazzara to score and give USD a two-run advantage.
Meador led the offence going 4-for-5 with one RBI and the only other USD player to record multiple hits was Jose Valerio, who went 2-for-4.
AJ Griffin (1-0) picked up his first win of the season as he allowed one run on two hits in 2.0 innings of work. Safford was saddled with the loss for Hawaii - Hilo as he allowed one run on no hits in 0.1 innings of work.
