Box Score

San Diego won for the fifth time in six games and improved to 6-2 at home after defeating Navy 8-1 Wednesday afternoon at Cunningham Stadium. Torero first baseman Randy Curtis (pictured) went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI. USD senior starter Pat Lucy and a relief corps of Brian Jones, Brett Gillespie and James Wickman combined to limit Navy to just three hits. San Diego (11-12) swept a two-game mid-week affair with Navy (5-15) and prepare for a weekend series with conference and division rival LMU, beginning 2pm Friday at USD's Cunningham Stadium.

Curtis drove in three runs Wednesday and after pounding out 12 hits, five doubles and 10 RBI over USD's last six games, Curtis has seen his batting average reach .300. Senior outfielder Josh Hansen, sophomore catcher Trevor Pike and freshman infielder Steve Singleton each registered two hits. As a team the San Diego offense totaled 31 hits in two games against the Midshipmen (Patriot League). Hansen went 5-for-6 in the two-game series, doubling and scoring twice on Wednesday.

Lucy's four and two thirds innings of work Wednesday was his longest outing since throwing a complete game against San Francisco as a sophomore in 2001. Jones (1-1) won for the first time as a Torero spanning 33 innings and 27 appearances over the past two seasons. Taking the mound for the first time this season, junior Brett Gillespie struck out four Navy batters in two and a third innings.

Trailing 2-0 in the top of the fourth, Navy was able to load up the bases on a pair of walks and a hit batter. With two outs and nowhere to put Navy centerfielder Craig Candeto, Lucy threw three consecutive balls to prompt the Toreros to call upon Jones out of the bullpen. Jones promptly walked in Navy's lone run of the series on a first pitch ball to Candeto that scored leftfielder Trevor Thompson. Jones proceeded to strikeout D.J. Faldowski and put an end the Midshipmen's only pressing offensive threat.



San Diego responded an inning later with a five-run sixth, highlighted by RBI base-hits by Curtis, Pike and Singleton.
