SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team pounded out 18 hits en route to a 10-2 win over Brown University Monday afternoon in a non-conference game at USD's Cunningham Stadium.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 15-10 overall and claim the four-game series with the Bears. With the loss, the Bears fall to 2-8 overall.
Brown wasted no time in scoring, as lead-off hitter Steve Daniels turned on the very first pitch of the game and rocketed it over the right field fence to give the Bears an early 1-0 lead.
San Diego responded in the bottom of the third inning scoring three runs on four hits. Tony Strazzara got things rolling as led off the inning with a single to left center field and moved to third two batters latter when Chris Engell doubled down the left field line. Zach Walters drove in Strazzara with a ground out to the second baseman. James Meador then drove in Engell with a double to center field and Steven Chatwood doubled in the final run of the inning to give USD a 3-1 lead.
The Toreros then added one run in each of the next three innings before putting the game out of reach in the bottom of the eighth inning with four runs on four hits. Engell led off the inning with a walk and moved to second on a Meador single through the left side. After Victor Sanchez was hit by a pitch to load the bases, Nick McCoy rocked his second collegiate home run, a grand slam over the left field fence to put the game at its final of 10-2.
Offensively for the Toreros, Meador led the way as he went a perfect 5-for-5 with one double and one RBI. Walters also looked impressive as he went 3-for-4 with two RBI.
Darrin Campbell (3-3) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits in a career-long 8.0 innings of work. Josh Feit (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Bears as he allowed six runs on 15 hits in 6.0 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday with a 3 p.m. game against Long Beach State inside the friendly confines of Cunningham Stadium.
