LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Kris Bryant's 2-run triple in the top of the ninth inning, lifted the 23rd-ranked University of San Diego baseball team to a thrilling 4-2 West Coast Conference win over Loyola Marymount Saturday afternoon at Paige Stadium.
With the game tied at 2-2, USD put on their rally caps in the ninth inning and managed to push across the go-ahead runs. Chris Woolley got things started with a single, and he moved to second on a Lucas Hagberg walk. Two batters later, Bryant stepped to the plate and launched his only hit of the game, a two-run triple to left center to give USD a 4-2 win.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 19-11 overall, move to 5-3 in the WCC and have evened the series with LMU. With the loss, the Lions fall to 15-15 overall and 6-5 in the WCC.
The Toreros got on the scoreboard first, as they scored a pair of runs in the top of the fourth inning. Connor Joe got things going as he singled up the middle, and he moved to third on Andrew Daniel's single to left field. AJ Robinson then laid down a sacrifice bunt to score Joe from third and move Daniel to second. Logan Davis then launched a RBI triple to right centerfield to score Daniel and give USD a 2-0 lead.
The Lions then answered right back in the bottom half of the fourth inning, as they scored two runs on three hits. The LMU runs came on a USD fielding error, and a ground out to the pitcher to even the score at 2-2.
Offensively for the Toreros, Robinson led the way, as he went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
Max Homick (4-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on three hits in 3.0 innings of work. LMU's Buckle (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Lions, as he allowed two runs on two hits in 1.1 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Sunday at 2 p.m., as they conclude this 3-game series with the Lions at Paige Stadium.
