SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego dropped a 14-5 non-conference game to No. 2 Oregon State University Friday evening at Fowler Park.
With the loss, the Toreros fall to 17-10 overall. With the win, the Beavers improve to 22-3 overall and have forced a rubber game with the Toreros on Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Beavers got on the score board first, as they scored three runs on four hits in the top of the first inning. The OSU runs came on a Michael Conforto 2-run single and a Danny Hayes RBI single to take the early 3-0 advantage.
San Diego answered right back in the bottom of the first inning, as they scored two runs on two hits. Lucas Hagberg got things started as he doubled to left field. Kris Bryant then unloaded his 14th-home run of the season, a two-run blast over the left field fence to move the score to 3-2. This was also the first home run that OSU starter Matt Boyd has given up all season. In fact, Bryant has now hit two home runs off of the OSU pitching staff, which is half of the home runs they have surrendered all season long.
USD then managed to tie the game up at 3-all in the bottom of the second inning, scoring one run on one hit. Jerod Smith led off the frame with a double to left centerfield. Chris Woolley then moved him up one base on a sacrifice bunt. After Louie Lechich drew a walk, Hagberg laid down a sacrifice bunt to score Smith from third to even the score at 3-3.
Oregon State then put up a seven-runs top of the fourth inning to put the game out of reach. OSU also scored three runs in sixth, and one in the eighth to round off their scoring for the day. The Toreros managed to score two runs in the bottom of the eighth to put the game at its final of 15-5.
Offensively for the Toreros, Hagberg led the way, as he went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI.
Dylan Covey (1-3) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed eight runs, six earned, on nine hits in 3.1 innings of work. Oregon State's Matt Boyd (6-0) picked up the win for the Beavers, as he allowed three runs, on four hits in 5.0 innings of work. Andrew Moore picked up his first save of the season, as he allowed no runs on two hits in 4.0 innings of work.
