Box Score

FULLERTON, Calif. - No. 9 Cal State Fullerton used a five-run seventh inning to come from behind and claim a 8-5 non-conference win over the University of San Diego baseball team Tuesday evening in a non-conference game at Goodwin Field.

The Toreros (25-16) wasted no time in scoring as in the first inning they scored one run on a Chris Engell solo home run to give USD the early 1-0 lead.

San Diego then doubled its lead in the top of the second inning. With two outs, Brian Farris got things started when he was hit by a pitch. Bryan Haar then drove in Farris with a run-scoring double to left center field to give USD a 2-0 lead.

For the third consecutive inning, the Toreros would score one run on one hit as Sean Nicol turned on the first pitch he saw and sent it over the left field fence to give USD a 3-0 lead.

The Titans (25-11) then took back two runs on three hits in the bottom of the third inning. The CSF runs came on a Joey Siddons RBI groundout to the shortstop, which scored Tyler Phil, who had singled. The final Titan run came on a Christian Colon solo home run to move the score to 3-2.

The Toreros then added to their lead in the top of the fifth inning. Jon Hotta got things started with a triple to right centerfield and Engell drove in Hotta with a single through the left side to give USD a 4-2 lead.

In the top of the sixth inning, the Toreros kept things rolling as they scored one run on two hits. James Meador got things started when he was hit by a pitch and moved to third on a Michael Lugo single to centerfield. Farris then drove in Meador with a RBI single through the left side to give USD a 5-2 lead.

 

 

CSF then took back one run in the bottom of the sixth inning on a Josh Fellhauer run-scoring double, which scored Colon, who had singled, to move the score to 5-3.

The Titans then took the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning scoring five runs. The CSF runs came on a Dustin Garneau solo home run, a Colon RBI single, a two-run Gary Brown triple and a Fellhauer sacrifice fly to take a 8-5 lead.

Offensively for the Toreros, Engell led the way as he went 2-for-4 with one home run and two RBI. Farris also had a solid day as he went 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI.

Scott Denault (3-3) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed four runs on three hits in 1.1 innings of work. Colin O'Connell (1-0) was credited with the win for the Titans, as he allowed one run on three hits in 2.2 innings of work.
