SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team scored three unanswered runs to claim a 4-1 win over Gonzaga University Saturday evening in a West Coast Conference game at Fowler Park.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 21-9 overall, move to 7-3 in the WCC and have claimed the series over GU. With the loss, the Zags fall to 10-20 overall, fall to 6-5 in the WCC and have now lost six straight games overall.

The Toreros wasted no time in scoring, as they pushed across one run in the bottom of the first inning. Connor Joe led off the game with a stand-up double to centerfield on the first pitch of the game. Louie Lechich then drew a walk, and Josh Goossen-Brown then flew out to right field, which moved Joe to third. Austin Bailey drove in Joe with an RBI single up the middle to give USD a 1-0 lead.

Gonzaga answered right back by scoring one run in the top of the second inning. The Zags run came on Joey Harris RBI single up the middle, which scored Sam Brown, who had singled, to move the score to 1-1.

San Diego then scored in the bottom of the second to regain the lead. The Torero run came on a Joe run-scoring double, which scored Jesse Jenner, who had hit an infield single, to give USD a 2-1 lead.

USD then went on to score one run in each of the fourth and fifth innings to put the game at its final of 4-1.

Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way, as he went 3-for-3 with three doubles, one RBI and two runs scored. Goossen-Brown also had a good day at the plate, as he went 2-fo-4.

Lechich (6-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on five hits, while striking out five in 6.0 innings of work. Goossen-Brown then came in to pick up his second save in as many games, and third of the season, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work. Gonzaga's Brandon Bailey (2-5) was saddled with the loss for the Zags, as he allowed four runs on seven hits in 7.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they look to complete a three-game sweep of the Bulldogs. First pitch is scheduled for 12 p.m. at Fowler Park.
