After both teams pushed across one run in the top of the first, USD would gain some momentum and breathing room, by putting up two runs in the top of the second ining. Ben Wylly got things started as he drew a lead-off walk, and moved to second on a wild pitch. After a Jerod Smith groundout moved Wylly up one base, Connor Joe drove him in with an RBI single. Joe then stole second, and Louie Lechich drove in Joe with a RBI single to give USD a 3-1 lead.

USF then tied the score up in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Dons' runs came on Derek Atkinson RBI single, which scored Bradley Zimmer, who had singled, and the second run came on Hendricks sacrifice fly to centerfield, which scored Nico Giarratano, who had singled, to tie the score up at 3-all.

USD then pushed across a pair of runs in the top of the sixth, only to see USF match those runs in the bottom half of the inning.

In the top of the eighth, USD was able to regain the upper hand, as they pushed across two runs. With two outs, and runners at first and second, Josh Goossen-Brown stepped to the plate and ripped a double off the left field fence, to score both Joe and Lechich, giving USD the 7-5 win.

 

 

Offensively for the Toreros, Lechich led the way, as he went 3-for-4 with three RBI and one home run. Joe also had a good day at the plate, as e went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Max MacNabb (2-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 2.0 innings of work. Josh Goossen-Brown picked up his first save of the season, as he allowed no runs on one hit in 2.0 innings of work.
