March 25, 2012
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's baseball team got their second conference win of the season over Santa Clara 4-2 Sunday afternoon.
After Santa Clara (13-6, 0-2 WCC) got on the board in the top of the second with two unearned runs to take the 2-0 lead, Kris Bryant sent his seventh home run of the season over the left field fence to cut the lead to 3-1 in the third. Louie Lechich followed with a walk and then scored on Dillon Haupt's triple to right center to trim the lead to 3-2. Conner Joe then followed with a single to left field to plate Haupt and even the score at 3-3.
San Diego (20-6, 2-0 WCC) got an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth. Bryan Haar doubled to right center with one out and the Broncos decided to intentionally walk Haupt to set up a potential inning-ending double play. Joe followed with a single to advance the base runners. A.J. Robinson then provided a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to score Bailey and extend the Toreros' lead to 4-2.
San Diego starting pitcher Paul Sewald (3-1) was impressive in his seven innings of work, allowing just two hits and no earned runs while striking out five and walking just one. Closer Michael Wagner came on in relief for the six-out save in his two innings of work, allowing just one hit for his 11th save of the season.
Santa Clara starting pitcher Brock Simon (1-1) was saddled with the loss, allowing 10 hits and four earned runs in five innings.
The Toreros were led offensively by Haupt, who went 2-for-3 with one run scored and one RBI. Andrew Daniel went 3-for-5 while Joe added two hits and an RBI.
The Toreros will look for the series sweep over Santa Clara tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. at Cunningham Stadium.
