Box Score

IRVINE, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team cruised to a 6-3 win over UC Irvine Tuesday evening in a non-conference game at Anteater Ballpark.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 23-9 overall, and have now strung together six consecutive wins. With the loss, the Anteaters fall to 21-11 overall.

The Toreros wasted no time in scoring, as with one out in the top of the first inning, Louie Lechich launched a triple to center field, and Lechich then came home on a throwing error by the UCI centerfielder, to give USD a 1-0 lead.

San Diego then doubled its lead in the top of the second inning. Austin Bailey got things started with a double down the left field line, and Andrew Daniel drove him in with a RBI single up the middle to give USD a 2-0 lead.

USD once again doubled its lead for a third consecutive inning, by scoring a pair of unearned runs in the top of the third inning. Jesse Jenner got things started with a single up the middle, and he moved to second on a wild pitch. Josh Goossen-Brown then hit the ball right to the shortstop, who let the ball roll under his glove, which allowed Jenner to score from second. Bailey then singled up the middle, and he advanced to second on the throw, as Goossen-Brown stretched that single into two bases. After Andrew Daniel loaded the bases with a walk, Kyle Holder hit the ball to the shortstop, who chose to try and get Daniel at second, but Daniel beat the throw, which allowed Goossen-Brown to score from third to give USD a 4-0 lead.



Offensively for the Toreros, Lechich led the way, as he went 3-for-5 with two doubles and one triple. Bailey also had a good day, as he went 2-for-4 with one run scored.

CJ Burdick (2-1) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on one hit in 2.0 innings of work. Mitch Merten (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Anteaters, as he allowed two runs on three hits in 2.1 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they head up to the Pacific Northwest to take on the University of Portland in a 3 p.m. WCC game.
