SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind a big five-run sixth inning and a perfect 3-for-3 day from Corey LeVier, the University of San Diego baseball team upset No. 10 Cal State Fullerton, 12-8, in a non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium Tuesday afternoon.

Nine of the 10 Torero hitters that went to the plate recorded at least one hit with LeVier leading the way going 3-for-3 with one home run and four RBI. Kevin Muno, Kalei Hanawahine, Zack Kometani, Bryan Haar, Julian Duran and Scott Schauer all recorded two hits a piece as USD strung together 17 hits on the afternoon.

It was a back and forth affair in the early going of the game, as the Titans scored three unearned runs in the first inning, then USD came back to tie things up by scoring two runs in the second, and one in the third inning. Fullerton would then score two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth, while USD scored one run in the fourth to move the sea-saw affair to a 6-5 CSF lead.

San Diego then grabbed control of the momentum in the bottom of the sixth inning as they push across five runs on five hits. Schauer got things started with a single through the left side, moved to second on Tony Strazzara's single to right field, and Schauer then moved to third on a fielding error by the right fielder on the same play. Muno then drove in Schauer with a RBI single up the middle for the first run of the inning and Strazzara advanced to third. A errant throw on a pick-off attempt by the pitcher then scored Strazzara and allowed Muno to reach third. Hanawahine drove in Muno with a RBI single to right field and Kris Bryant then pushed across Muno with a triple. LeVier would then push across Bryant on a sacrifice fly to centerfield to put the game out of reach at 10-6.

The Titans then attempted to rally in the top of the ninth as they scored two runs on two hits with no outs, but Paul Paez then entered the game and retired all three batters he faced to end the game and pick up his first save of the season.

Freshman right-hander Max MacNabb (1-2) picked up his first win of the season, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.0 innings of work. Fullerton's Ryan Ackland (0-1) was saddled with the loss for the Titans as he allowed three runs on three hits in 0.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they head to Moraga, Calif. to resume West Coast Conference play against Saint Mary's College. First pitch is set for 3 p.m.
