Box Score

SPOKANE, Wash. - The 25th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team dropped a 6-2 West Coast Conference game to Gonzaga University Friday evening at Patterson Baseball Complex.

The Toreros (14-7, 3-1 WCC) got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to push across one run in the top of the first inning. Lucas Hagberg got things started, as he reached on a double. After a Kris Bryant walk, Dillon Haupt moved each runner up a base on a sacrifice bunt. Connor Joe then hit an RBI single to center field to give USD the early 1-0 lead.

Gonzaga (13-6-1, 3-1 WCC) then responded with a six run bottom half of the first inning. The GU runs came on a USD fielding error, RBI singles from Slavin, and Wood, a two-run Reiten double and a Forbes RBI sacrifice fly to move the score to 6-1.

USD then tried a ninth inning rally, and things got really interesting. Dillon Checkal got things started with a single through he left side. Logan Davis then reached on a fielder's choice, which caused Checkal to be thrown out at second. AJ Robinson was then hit by a pitch, which moved Davis to second. After both runners moved up one base on a wild pitch, another wild pitch then scored Davis. Back to-back walks by Kris Bryant and Haupt then loaded the bases with two outs. But USD could not push across any more runs, leaving the game at its final of 6-2.

Bryant led the offensive charge for the Toreros, as he went 2-for-3 with two walks.

Michael Wagner (1-2) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed six runs, five earned, on seven hits in 5.1 innings of work. GU's Marco Gonzales (4-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Zags, as he allowed one run on five hits in 7.0 innings of work.
