SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team dropped their West Coast Conference series opener to Pepperdine University, 7-4, Friday evening at Fowler Park.
With the loss, the Toreros fall to 19-14 overall, move to 5-5 in the WCC and have now lost three consecutive games. With the win, the Waves improve to 19-13 overall and move to 7-3 in the WCC.
San Diego got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to score one run on no hits in the bottom of the first inning. Dillon Checkal reached on an error by the third baseman, and moved to second on a Kris Bryant walk. After AJ Robinson moved both runners up a base on a sacrifice bunt, Dillon Haupt then drove in Checkal on a ground out to the second baseman to give USD a 1-0 lead.
Pepperdine then responded with a three run top of the third, as Austin Davidson launched a 3-run homer over the right field fence to give the Waves the momentum and a 3-1 lead.
After the Waves scored two more runs in the top of the fourth, USD would take those two runs back in the bottom half of the fourth. The Torero runs came on a wild pitch and a Connor Joe RBI single through the right side to move the score to 5-3.
Pepperdine then went on to score two runs in the fifth, and USD would score one in the fifth to put the game at its final of 7-4.
Offensively for the Toreros, Robinson led the way as he went 3-for-4 with one run scored.
Michael Wagner (1-4) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed seven runs, six earned, on eight hits in 4.1 innings of work.
The Toreros and Waves will resume the WCC series on Saturday at 6 p.m. with a game at Fowler Park.
