The Aztecs (21-8) got on the scoreboard first as they pushed across one run in the top of the first inning. The SDSU run came on a Seby Zavala groundout to the pitcher, which scored Tim Zier, who had singled, to give SDSU a 1-0 lead.
The Toreros (19-9) then responded in the bottom of the third inning. After Louie Lechich reached on a fielder's choice, Andrew Daniel stepped to the plate with two outs and Lechich at first. Daniel then unleashed a 2-run blast over the left field fence to give USD a 2-1 lead.
The Toreros then doubled its lead in the bottom of the fifth inning, scoring one run on one hit. Lechich got things started when he drew a walk. Lechich then moved to second on a Daniel ground out, and Josh Goossen-Brown drove in Lechich with a RBI single to left field to move the score to 3-1.
USD then broke the game open in the bottom of the seventh, scoring four runs on four hits. The Torero runs came on an Austin Bailey 2-run single, and RBI singles by Jenner and Jerod Smith to put the game at tis final of 7-1.
Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way, as he went 3-for-4 with one run scored. Daniel also had a good day, going 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI that gave USD the lead.
CJ Burdick (1-1) was credited with the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on two hits, while striking out three in 3.0 innings of work. The Torero pitching staff, who at one point retired 18 of 19 batters, combined to only allow three hits to the Aztecs.
