Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 19h-ranked University of San Diego baseball team completed a three-game sweep over La Salle University Sunday afternoon with a 5-3 non-conference victory inside the friendly confines of Cunningham Stadium.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 29-8, the best start in program history, and run their winning streak to six. USD head coach Rich Hill now has recorded his 803rd career win with today's victory. With the loss, the Explorers fall to 16-19 overall.

USD got on the scoreboard first, as they scored two runs on two hits in the bottom of the third inning. Connor Joe got things started as he was hit by a pitch, and he moved to second on Dillon Checkal's single up the middle. Andrew Daniel then singled to centerfield, which loaded the bases with no outs. Corey LeVier then hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield, which scored Joe, to give USD a 1-0 lead. After Kris Bryant was intentionally walked, Dillon Haupt drove in Checkal with a sacrifice fly to right field, giving USD a 2-0 lead.

La Salle then took back a run in the top of the fourth inning on a Adan Kamlmer sacrifice fly to left field, which scored Flax, who had singled, to move the score to 2-1.

USD then took that right right back in the bottom half of the fourth inning, as a Checkal ground out to the shortstop, pushed across Bryan Haar, who had doubled, to give USD back a two-run lead at 3-1.

The two team again swapped runs in the fifth and seventh innings to put the game at its final of 5-3

Offensively for the Toreros, Daniel led the way as he went 2-for-4, while Checkal went 1-for-3 with two RBI.



Jack Shannon (1-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.2 innings of work. Michael Wagner came on and recorded his nation's-best 18th save of the season, as he allowed no runs on two hits in 1.0 innings of work. The 18 saves, now ties him for the WCC single-season record, and moves him just five shy of the NCAA single-season record. La Salle's starter Kevin Kristy (1-2) was saddled with the loss for the Explorers, as he allowed four runs, three earned, on five hits in 6.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday, as they resume West Coast Conference play with a 3 p.m. game against Saint Mary's College inside the friendly confines of Cunningham Stadium.
