Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Josh Romanski turns in yet another dominating performance on the mound as he took a no hitter into the sixth inning, before surrendering one run on two hits in 8.0 innings of work to help lead the 21st-ranked University of San Diego baseball team (28-13, 6-2 WCC) to a 7-1 West Coast Conference win over the University of Portland (14-19, 2-6 WCC) Saturday afternoon at Cunningham Stadium.

Romanski (6-2) retired his first 12 batters, before surrendering a walk, then shutdown the next three batters to take a no-no into the sixth inning. The lead off batter for the Pilots in the top of the sixth inning, Billy Krouse, broke up the no-hitter with a single. Romanski has now only allowed five runs in his last six outings to lower his team-leading ERA to 2.62.

San Diego jumped out to the early lead in the bottom of the first inning. Justin Snyder led off the frame with a single to center field, then stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. Three batters later, Shane Buschini drove in Snyder with a single up the middle to give USD a 1-0 lead.

The Toreros tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the second inning on two hits. Logan Gelbrich got things rolling with an infield single and moved to second on a Sean Nicol sacrifice bunt. After a Kevin Muno walk, both Muno and Gelbrich advanced one base on a balk by the Pilots starting pitcher. Snyder then drove in the two runs with a double down the right field line to move the USD advantage to 3-0.

In the bottom of the third inning USD moved their lead to four on a Gelbrich RBI single to right field, scoring Buschini who had singled, to move the score to 4-0.



The Pilots spoiled the shutout for the Toreros with one run in the seventh inning on a James Allen run-scoring double to cut the lead to three at 4-1.

The Toreros then responded in the bottom of the seventh inning with two runs on a Buschini sacrifice fly and a wild pitch to put the game out of reach at 6-1.

The final USD run came on a Snyder sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the game at its final of 7-1.

Offensively for the Toreros, Snyder led the way with his 2-for-3 one double and three RBI performance. Buschini went 2-for-3 with two RBI and the final USD player to record multiple hits was Gelbrich, who went 2-for-4 with one RBI.

Given Kutz (4-4) was saddled with the loss for the Pilots on the mound as he allowed six runs on eight hits in 6.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will close out the three-game series with the Plots on Sunday with a 1 p.m. game inside the friendly confines of Cunningham Stadium.
