Romanski's Two-Hit Gem Leads USD to Series Win Over SMC

April 6, 2007

Box Score

MORAGA, Calif. - For the second consecutive game, the Toreros got a dominating performance on the mound, this time by Josh Romanski, and a dominating performance at the plate by Justin Snyder to lead the University of San Diego baseball team (25-12, 3-2 WCC) to a 2-0 win over Saint Mary's College (16-14-1, 0-5 WCC) Friday afternoon. With the win, the Toreros have claimed the three-game West Coast Conference series over the Gaels.

Romanski (5-1) had another outstanding performance on the mound as he allowed no runs on two hits, while striking out a career-high nine batters and only walking one batter in his first complete game his career. Romanski retired his first eight batters before Ryan Young singled in the bottom of the third inning. Romanski then retired the next 14 batters before surrendering his second hit of the afternoon in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Toreros wasted no time in scoring as they put up one run on two hits. Snyder got things going with a lead-off single to left field and he moved to second on a Kevin Hansen walk. Jordan Abruzzo then delivered a RBI single to left field to bring in Snyder for a 1-0 USD lead.

San Diego then added to their lead in the top of the fourth inning scoring one run on two hits. Shane Buschini led off the inning with his eighth home run of the season, a solo shot over the right center field fence to give USD a 2-0 lead.

SMC had their best scoring opportunity come in the bottom of the eighth inning as they finally got a runner into scoring position. Kyle Jensen recorded only the second hit of the game for the Gales, then moved to second when Ryan Mulligan was hit by a pitch. Romanski didn't fold under the pressure as he got the next batter, Gilbert Urbina, to ground into a double play to retire the side and end the Gaels scoring threat.

 

 

Offensively for the Toreros, Snyder was a solid force at the plate as he went a perfect 4-for-4 with two doubles and one run scored.

Brandon Berl (2-3) was saddled with the loss for the Gaels as he allowed two runs on six hits in 5.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday as they conclude the three-game series with Saint Mary's. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
