Kris Bryant.

April 19, 2013

Box Score

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team rallied to score six unanswered runs over the final two innings to claim a 7-3 victory over Santa Clara University Friday evening in a West Coast Conference game.

After USD (22-15, 7-6 WCC) tied the game with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning, USD would then score four runs in the top of the ninth to complete the come-from-behind victory. With one two outs and Louie Lechich standing at first base, the Broncos elected to intentionally walk Kris Bryant. Back-to-back walks to AJ Robinson and Lucas Hagberg scored the first runs of the inning. Jerod Smith then drew a bases-loaded RBI walk and Connor Joe drove in the final two runs on a two-run single to right field to give USD the 7-3 win.

The Broncos (9-26, 0-13 WCC) got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to score one run on no hits. The SCU run came on a wild pitch, which scored Gisch, who had walked, to give SCU a 1-0 lead.

San Diego then evened the score in the top of the sixth inning, as Kris Bryant launched his 18th home run of the season, a solo shot to left field. Bryant's home run tied the USD single-season record, held by Dave Rolls, set back in 1988.

The Broncos then scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh inning on a USD fielding error and a bases-loaded walk. With these runs, SCU took a 3-1 lead.

The Toreros then responded with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning. The USD runs came on a Hagberg RBI single and a fielder's choice to tie the game at 3-all, and set up the thrilling four-run ninth inning.

 

 

Offensively for the Toreros, Bryant led the way, as he went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and an RBI.

PJ Conlon (5-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 2.0 innings of work. SCU's Max Deering (1-4) was saddled with the loss for the Broncos, as he allowed three runs on two hits in 1.2 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Saturday at 3 .m., as they resume their 3-game series with the Broncos.
