Connor Joe.


SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team rallied from behind to claim a 7-6 win on a walk-off wild pitch over UC Riverside Tuesday evening in a non-conference game at Fowler Park.

With USD and UCR locked at 6-runs apiece heading into the bottom of the ninth, the Toreros once again looked for some Fowler Park ninth inning magic, and they got just that. With one out, Andrew Daniel got things started, as he hit a single to right field, then the Riverside right fielder misplayed the ball, allowing Daniel to reach third. Two batters later, Jesse Jenner was intentionally walked, to bring Kyle Holder to the plate. On the very first pitch to Holder, the ball bounced in front of the catcher, and jumped towards the Torero dugout, allowing Daniel to score from third, giving USD the 7-6 win.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 26-14 overall, and have swept the two-game series over the Highlanders. With the loss, UCR falls to 17-19 overall and saw its three-game winning streak come to an end.

San Diego wasted no time in scoring, as they pushed across a pair of runs in the bottom of the first inning. Austin Bailey led off the frame with a single up the middle, to run his hitting streak to 21 games. Connor Joe then doubled in Bailey for the first run of the inning. Joe then moved to third on a Daniel fly out to center field, and Louie Lechich drove in Joe with a groundout to the second baseman, to give USD a 2-0 lead.

UCR then took back a run in the top of the second inning on a Joe Chavez sacrifice fly to left field, which drove in Matthew Ellis, who had walked, to move the score to 2-1.

USD then scored one run in the bottom of the fifth, before UCR took advantage of a few USD miscues to score three unearned runs in the top of the sixth inning, and one more in the top of the seventh to take a 4-3 lead.

San Diego then responded with one run in the seventh, and a two run Holder homer in the bottom of the eighth, to regain the lead at 6-5. UCR then knotted things up with a run in the ninth to set up the thrilling final inning.

Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way, as he went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and one run scored. Daniel and Josh Goossen-Brown also had good games, as they each went 2-for-4.

PJ Conlon (6-2) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed two runs on four hits in 3.0 innings of work. UCR's Kevin Sprague (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Highlanders, as he allowed one run on one hit in 1.1 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday, as they begin a crucial three-game West Coast Conference series at the University of the Pacific. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
