Box Score

FRESNO, Calif. - After playing in a historic 22-inning game Saturday evening, the University of San Diego and Fresno State concluded the three-game series on Sunday afternoon, with the Bulldogs defeating the Toreros, 7-4 in a non-conference game at Beiden Field.

With the loss, the Toreros fall to 4-17 overall, and their losing streak reaches a season-high nine. With the win, the Bulldogs improve to 18-2.

Fresno State got on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across a pair of runs on one hit in the bottom of the third inning. The Bulldogs' runs came on a Danny Muno bases-clearing double to give FSU a 2-0 lead.

The Toreros then evened the score in the top of the fifth inning, scoring two runs on three hits. Back-to-back singles by Bryan Haar and Tony Strazzara set the table with no outs. After both Haar and Strazzara advanced one base on a double steal, Tommy Cheek drove in Haar with a RBI ground out to the second baseman, while Strazzara moved to third. Two batters later, Kevin Muno drove in Strazzara with a RBI single to left field to move even the playing field at 2-2.

After the Bulldogs then regained the lead with a three-run bottom of the sixth inning, the Toreros managed to cut the deficit to one run with two runs in the top of the eighth inning. Muno got things started with a walk, and he moved to second on a Scott Schauer single to left field. Kris Bryant then reached on a fielder's choice, which moved Muno to third, and saw Schauer get put thrown out at second. Zack Kometani then drive in both Muno and Bryant with a two-run double to right centerfield to move the score to 5-4.



But the Bulldogs would then go on to add one run in each of the seventh and eighth inning to put the game at its final of 7-4.

Offensively for the Toreros, Kometani led the way as he went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Strazzara and Schauer also had a productive day at the plate as they also went 2-for-4 and Haar went 2-for-3.

Max MacNabb (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Toreros, as he allowed five runs on four hits in 5.1 innings of work. Josh Poytress was credited with the win for the Bulldogs, as he allowed four runs on nine hits in 7.1 innings of work. Tom Harlan picked up the save, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they host New Orleans in a 3 p.m. non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium.
