SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 17th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team cruised its way to an 8-1 win over Loyola Marymount University Sunday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at Fowler Park.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 15-8 overall, move to 4-2 in the WCC and saw its season-high four-game losing skid come to an end. With the loss, the Lions fall to 14-9 overall and 5-1 in the WCC.

San Diego wasted no time in scoring, as they pushed across one run in the bottom of the first inning. Connor Joe got things started with a single to right centerfield. He moved to second on an Andrew Daniel fly out to centerfield, and moved to third on a wild pitch. Jesse Jenner then drove in Joe with an RBI sacrifice fly to right field, giving USD its first lead of the series at 1-0.

The Lions then evened the score up in the top of the second, scoring one run on a Cole Trezek sacrifice fly, scoring Tanner Donnels, who had singled, to move the score to 1-1.

USD then scored a pair of runs in the third to regain the momentum, and put the game out of reach in the bottom of the seventh, scoring three runs on one hit. Andrew Daniel drew a walk, and he moved to second on a pass ball. Josh Goossen-Brown was then intentionally walked, and Jenner was hit by a pith to load the bases. Troy Conyers then drew an RBI bases-loaded walk, followed by a Louie Lechich sacrifice fly to score the first two runs. Austin Bailey then pushed across the final run on an RBI single to give USD a 6-1 lead.

The Toreros then capped the scoring for the day in the bottom of the eighth with a pair of runs to put the game at its final of 8-1.

Offensively for the Toreros, Goossen-Brown led the way, as he went 1-for-3 with a home run and one RBI. Seven other Toreros also recorded one hit this afternoon.

Lechich (5-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on seven hits in 8.1 innings of work. LMU's Sean Buckle (1-3) was saddled with the loss for the Lions, as he allowed three runs on five hits in 3.0 innings of work.

San Diego will return to action on Tuesday, as they head up to the Inland Empire to take on the UC Riverside Highlanders in a 6 p.m. non-conference game at the Riverside Sports Complex.
