Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 17th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (23-13, 5-2 WCC) used a four-run seventh inning rally to claim a 6-4 come-from-behind West Coast Conference win over rival Loyola Marymount University (14-23, 3-4 WCC) Thursday afternoon at Cunningham Stadium.

With the Toreros trailing by two heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, the USD bats became red hot as they scored four runs on five hits to regain the lead. Freshman designated hitter Josh Romanski got the ball rolling with a single up the middle followed by a single by senior third baseman Ryan Lilly to move Romanski to second. After both runners advanced one base on a pass ball, Justin Snyder cleared the bases when he blasted a single deep into center field to knot the score at 4-4. After Snyder stole second, USD would score its final two runs on back-to-back doubles by Keoni Ruth and Steve Singleton to give the Toreros a lead they would not look back on.

The Toreros were the ones who jumped out to the early lead in the first inning as they scored one run on a Jordan Abruzzo ground rule double which scored Snyder, who had walked.

LMU then gained the lead in the third inning as they scored three runs on two hits. The Lions runs came by way of a Chris Pettit run-scoring double and a two-run double by Sean Dovel.

The Toreros took one run back in the bottom of the sixth inning on a Singleton's fourth home run of the season, a solo shot over the right center field fence.

The Lions however, were able to take that run back in the seventh inning on a Justin Bunkis RBI single to right field to regain the two run lead at 4-2.

 

 

Offensively for the Toreros Romanski led the charge going 3-for-4 with one double. Singleton snapped his hitting slump with a 2-for-4 with two RBI, one home run and one double performance. Ruth was another Torero to have a solid performance at the plate going 2-for-3 with one RBI and one double.

Freshman Ricardo Pecina (4-1) picked up the win for the Toreros allowing one run on three hits in 1.0 innings of relief work. Starter Brad Meyers (5-4) was saddled with the loss for the Lions allowing six runs on six hits in 7.0 innings of work.

The Toreros and Lions will resume the three-game WCC series on Friday with a 3:30 p.m. game at Cunningham Stadium. The game time is at 3:30 in order to honor of Good Friday.
