Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 19th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team completed a double-header sweep over La Salle University Saturday afternoon with a 2-0 win in game two at Cunningham Stadium.

With the win, the Toreros set a program record for best start through 36 games, at 28-8 overall. With the loss, the Explorers fall to 16-18 overall.

The Toreros got on the scoreboard early, as in the bottom of the second inning, USD was able to take advantage of an error. Kris Bryant led off the inning with a walk. Then with two outs, Bryant was stealing second, the La Salle pitcher attempted to pick him off, only the ball went past the first baseman and went all the way to the visiting bullpen. Meanwhile, Bryant never stopped running and was able to beat out a throw at the plate to give USD a 1-0 lead.

USD then doubled its lead in the bottom of the third inning. The USD run came on another error by the Explorers, this time Andrew Daniel, who had walked, was at second and Conner Joe hit the ball to the third baseman, and he over threw the first baseman, allowing Daniel to easily score from second, and allowing Joe to safely reach first base, giving USD a 2-0 lead.

Offensively for the Toreros, Daniel led the way as he went 1-for-2 with one run scored. Dillon Haupt, Lucas Hagberg, Bryan Haar and Austin Green all recorded one hit apiece.

Dylan Covey (5-2) picked up the win on the mound, as he allowed no runs, while scattering five hits and striking out seven in 7.0 innings of work. Michael Wagner came on and picked up his second save of the day, and USD single-season record 17th save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work. La Salle starter Ryan Donahue (1-1) was saddled with the loss as he allowed two unearned runs on four hits in 6.1 innings of work.



The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they conclude this three-game series with La Salle. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. inside the friendly confines of Cunningham Stadium.
