SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team dropped a 5-2 West Coast Conference game to Pepperdine University Sunday afternoon at Fowler Park.
With the loss, the Toreros fall to 20-15 overall, move to 6-6 in the WCC and have now lost their third consecutive WCC series. With the win, the Waves improve to 20-14 overall and move to 8-4 in the WCC.
The Waves got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to push across one run in the top of the third on a Hutton Moyer sacrifice fly, which scored Ranny Lowe, who had singled, to give Pepperdine a 1-0 lead.
San Diego answered right back, as Austin Green launched a solo home run over the left field fence in the bottom of the third to move the score to 1-1.
The Waves then went on to score two runs in the fourth, and two more in the seventh to take a commanding 5-1 lead. USD would manage to load the bases in the bottom of the ninth with no outs, but only pushed across one run on a Dillon Haupt double-play groundout to the shortstop to put the game at its final of 5-2.
Offensively for the Toreros, five different players recorded one hit, highlighted by Green's home run.
Max Homick (4-1) suffered his first loss of the season on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed three runs on six hits in 3.2 innings of work. Pepperdine's Aaron Brown (4-1) was credited with the win for the Waves, as he allowed two runs on four hits in 8.0 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday, when they host UC Santa Barbara in a 6 p.m. non-conference game at Fowler Park.
