Box Score

CONWAY, S.C. - The University of San Diego baseball team dropped the series opener to No. 10 Coastal Carolina, 10-2, Friday evening in a non-conference game at Watson Stadium.

The Chanticleers (19-3) got on the scoreboard first, as they scored one run on a solo homer by Rico Noel in the bottom of the first inning to give Coastal Carolina a 1-0 lead.

USD starting pitcher Kyle Blair then settled down and retired 12 of the next 15 batters he faced, six by strikeout, before the Chanticleers took advantage of a few USD fielding errors and scored seven runs, one earned, in the bottom of the fifth inning, to all the momentum and a 7-0 lead.

After Coastal Carolina scored a pair of runs in the sixth inning, the Toreros (12-11) finally were able to get on the scoreboard. Bryan Haar got things started with a single through the right side, and moved to second on Nick McCoy's single up the middle. After Kevin Muno loaded the bases by drawing a walk, Scott Schauer then drew a walk to push across the first run of the inning. Tony Strazzara then grounded into a double play to push across the final run of the inning, and leave the game at its final of 10-2.

Offensively for the Toreros, Haar led the way as he went 2-for-3 with one run scored and one walk.

Blair (2-2) was saddled with the loss for the Toreros, as he allowed 10 runs, four earned, on six hits, while striking out nine in 5.1 innings of work. Cody Wheeler (4-0) was credited with the win for the Chaticleers as he allowed two runs on five hits in 6.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday with game two of the three-game series with Coastal Carolina. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. (PT)
