Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team dropped an 11-3 decision to No. 23 UC Irvine Tuesday evening in a non-conference at Fowler Park.

The Anteaters (22-8) got on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across three runs on four hits in the top of the first inning. The UCI runs came on a Taylor Sparks 2-run double and a Ryan Gottschling RBI single to give Irvine an early 3-0 lead.

After the visitors scored two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth, the Toreros (19-13) finally broke though and got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth inning. Dillon Haupt got things started with a solo home run to left centerfield. Connor Joe kept things rolling as he drew a walk, and he moved to second on an Andrew Daniel infield single. Louie Lechich then drove in Joe with an RBI single up the middle to move the score to 6-2.

UCI then tacked on two more runs in the sixth, two in the seventh, and one in the eighth to round off their scoring for the day. USD would score one run on the sixth to cap off their scoring for the day to put the game at its final of 11-3.

Offensively for the Toreros, Lechich led the way, as he went 2-for-3 with one RBI, while AJ Robinson also had a good day at the plate, as he went 2-for-4.

Lechich (1-1) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed three runs on three hits in 0.1 innings of work. UCI's Mitch Merten (2-1) was credited with the win on the mound for the Anteaters, as he allowed two runs on five hits in 4.1 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday, as they resume West Coast Conference action with a 6 p.m. game against Pepperdine University
