SAN DIEGO, Calif. - No. 23 UC Irvine pushed across one run on a Jeff Cusick run-scoring double in the top of the 12th inning to lift the Anteaters to a 4-3 win over the University of San Diego baseball team Tuesday afternoon in a non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium.
With the game tied at 3-3, the Anteaters (19-11) were finally to break up the tie in the top of the 12th inning. Jordan Fox led off the frame with a walk and moved to second on a Brian Hernandez groundout to the shortstop. Cusick then drove in the winning run with a double to left field to put the game at its final of 4-3.
UCI got on the score board first as they scored two runs in the top of the first inning. The Anteater runs came on a Hernandez RBI single and a fielder's choice to give Irvine the 2-0 lead.
After the two runs scored, both teams were engaged in a pitchers duel between UCI starter Evan Brock and USD reliever's Chris Jensen and Paul Sewald. Brock had a no-hitter going through five innings before Zack Kometani broke it up with an infield single. Jensen also looked impressive on the mound for the Toreros, as he had one of his best outings of his career, allowing no runs on four hits in 4.2 innings of work. Sewald also had one of his best Torero outings as he allowed only one run on one hit in 3.0 innings of work. But in the end, Nick Hoover (1-0) picked up the win for the Anteaters allowing no runs on no hits in 2.0 innings of work, while Sam Wolff (1-1) was saddled with the loss for the Toreros as he allowed one run on one hit in 1.1 innings of work.
After Irvine scored a run in the top of the eighth inning to take a 3-0 led, the Torero bats woke-up and came back to tie things up. Nick McCoy got things started with a lead-off walk, then Victor Sanchez launched his team-leading fourth home run of the season, a two-run blast over the left field fence to cut the deficit to one with no outs. Kevin Muno kept things rolling with a stand-up double to left centerfield and Chris Engell drove home Muno with an RBI single to centerfield, which forced extra innings.
Offensively for the Toreros, Sanchez led the way as he went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.
The Toreros will return to action on Friday when they welcome Santa Clara University to Cunningham Stadium for a 3 p.m. West Coast Conference game.
