HOUSTON, Texas - The University of San Diego baseball team (14-9) used a five-run 11th inning to capture a 9-4 non-conference win against the University of Houston (12-10) Friday evening in the first game of a three-game series.
In the top of the 11th inning USD was able to score five runs on four hits to capture the 9-4 come-from-behind win. Josh Romanski got things rolling as he launched a rocket shot to left field. The Houston left fielder then recorded a fielding error which allowed Romanski to reach second base. After Romanski advanced to third on a Logan Gelbrich ground out, Ryan Lilly brought Romanski home on a single to center field. Steve Singleton then put the game out of reach with a two-run blast over the right center field fence giving USD a three-run cushion. USD's final two runs of the inning came on Shane Buschini's lone hit of the game, a two-run single to left field putting the game at its final of 9-4.
Huston would take a two-run lead into the ninth inning after they scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning on a fielding error by USD, but USD would respond with two runs in the top of the ninth on a UH fielding error and a Romanski RBI single to send the game into extra innings.
The Toreros would score one run in each of the second and fifth innings to round out the scoring for the day.
Singleton led USD's offense going 3-for-6 with three RBI and one home run.
Scott Denault (1-0) picks up his first win of the season for the Toreros allowing no runs on one hit in 1.0 innings of work. Aaron Brown (1-2) was saddled with the loss for the Cougars allowing three runs on four hits in 2.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Saturday as they continue a three-game non-conference series with the Cougars of Houston in a 5 p.m. (PST) game at Cougar Field.
