Box Score

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team used an eight-run sixth to propel themselves to a 15-9 victory over the University of San Francisco Friday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at Benedetti Diamond.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 17-8 overall, and move to 5-2 in the WCC. With the loss, the Dons fall to 12-12 overall, and 2-5 in the WCC.

The Dons got on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across two runs on three hits in the bottom of the third. The USF runs came on a fielder's choice, and a Zach Turner RBI single to give the Dons a 2-0 lead.

After the Dons tacked on four more runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 6-0 lead, San Diego answered with an eight-run top of the sixth to take the lead. Louie Lechich got things started with a single, and he moved to second when Josh Goossen-Brown was hit by a pitch. Austin Bailey then loaded the bases with a single, and Ryan Kirby drove in Lechich with an RBI groundout. Jesse Jenner then hit a two-run single, and he moved to second on a Kyle Holder single. Ben Wylly drove in Jenner with an RBI single and Connor Joe drove in Holder with a double. Lechich then capped the scoring for the inning with a 3-run blast to give USD an 8-6 lead.

USF then took back a run in the bottom of the sixth, scoring on a Derek Atkinson RBI single, which scored Bradley Zimmer, who had singled, to move the score to 8-7.



USD then added seven insurance runs in the top of the ninth to cap their scoring for the day. The Torero runs came on Jenner RBI single, a Holder 2-run double, a Joe RBI, a Lechich 2-run double, a Andrew Daniel sacrifice fly, and a Goossen-Brown run-scoring double to move the score to 15-7.

USF then took back a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth to put the game at its final of 15-9.

Offensively for the Toreros, Lechich led the way, as he went 3-for-6 with a home run, a double and four RBI. Jenner also had a great day, as he went 3-for-4 with three RBI, and Holder went 3-for-4 with two RBI.

PJ Conlon (4-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed seven runs, six earned, on nine hits in 6.0 innings of work. San Francisco's Abe Bobb (2-3) was saddled with the loss, as he allowed eight runs on 10 hits in 5.2 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday, as they resume this three-game series with the Dons in a 1 p.m. game.
