Box Score

(Malibu, CA) - Kyle Collins and Nate Boman combined on a six-hit shutout Saturday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium, propelling San Diego past Pepperdine 2-0. Boman struck out five Wave batters over two and two thirds of an inning to secure the win for San Diego (21-19). Pepperdine (18-18) loaded the bases in the ninth only to be turned away by Boman, a true freshman out of San Diego's Patrick Henry High School. The weekend series concludes with a scheduled third game Sunday at 1pm.

For the second straight day San Diego jumped out in front in the top of the first inning. The Toreros manufactured a run after leadoff hitter Tom Caple singled and advanced to second on a wild pitch by Wave starter Kea Kometani (4-5). A Keoni Ruth groundout followed by a sacrifice fly from Freddy Sandoval allowed Caple to score, putting USD in front 1-0.

Kometani, who pitched nine complete innings, allowed Torero freshman Jordan Abruzzo to score on a wild pitch in the seventh. Both Caple and Randy Curtis posted a pair of hits for USD on Saturday.

A total of seven Torero hits and two runs was all San Diego would need offensively as right-handed starter Kyle Collins (4-1) was in complete control, throwing six plus innings of five-hit baseball. Boman came on to earn his third save shutting down a Pepperdine rally in the bottom of the seventh with a pair of strikeouts.

The Waves did not go quietly, loading up the bases in the both the seventh and ninth. On both occasions Boman was able to hold Pepperdine scoreless, inducing a groundball off the bat of Pepperdine pinch-hitter Damian Gomez to close out any hopes of a Wave comeback victory.
