San Diego 7-6 Winners In Extras

April 8, 2004

Box Score

(San Diego, CA) - Keoni Ruth's bunt single in the tenth inning scored Steve Singleton giving San Diego a 7-6 West Coast Conference victory over Santa Clara at USD's Cunningham Stadium. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Torero leftfielder Josh Hansen singled off Bronco closer Anthony Rea sending the game into extra innings. USD reliever Nate Boman struck out seven for a San Diego (18-17) team that wins its first extra inning game this season- doing so Thursday against one of the league's premier closers.

Boman (1-1), a freshman from San Diego's Patrick Henry High School, fanned seven of the 11 Santa Clara (16-17) batters he faced through three-plus scoreless innings of work. USD starter Aaron Wilson was effective before he left in favor of Boman in the seventh with two outs and runners at second and third. An immediate wild pitch and a subsequent RBI single by Jason Mattcucci allowed both inherited runners to score off Boman, giving Santa Clara a 6-5 lead.

Santa Clara reliever Thomas Van Buskirk replaced Bronco starter Chad Fillinger in the sixth. Off Fillinger, USD scored in each of the first three innings, with Freddy Sandoval and Randy Curtis each hitting solo homeruns over the right field wall. Pitching with a 6-5 lead Van Buskirk retired San Diego easily in the eighth- setting the stage for Rea in the ninth.

With Rea (2-1) attempting to record his 10 save of the year, Ruth led off the USD ninth with a double to left centerfield. Rea then retired both Sandoval and Jordan Abruzzo. With Ruth at third, Hansen singled to even the score at six. Rea then walked a pair of batters in the tenth en route to loading up the bases for Ruth who laid down a bunt towards the right side of the infield, scoring Singleton from third and ending the game.

 

 

Ruth was 3-for-6 Thursday with two runs scored and the game-winning RBI. Hansen drove in two runs, doubled and extended his hitting streak to 18 games. Boman wins for the first time in his collegiate career and now has a team-leading 49 K's in 36-plus innings.
