Los Angeles, Calif. -- The USD Toreros rallied for an 11-10 victory over Loyola Marymount this evening. Junior Chris McCready delivered a pinch-hit two-out, two-strike, two-run homer to right-center in the 9th inning to propel the Toreros to a big WCC victory over the Lions. Down 10-7 to start the ninth, Riley Adams jump-started the rally with a home run. Colton Waltner added a single and was knocked in by Brhet Bewley's RBI triple. It was McCready's first home run of the season. Jonathan Teaney pitched the final 1.2 innings without giving up a hit to earn the victory and improve to 2-1 on the season.

The win moves USD into a three-way tie for first place in the WCC standings at 14-5 with LMU and Gonzaga. For the game the Toreros banged out 19 hits with Jeff Houghtby (4-for-5 with 3 runs) and Hunter Mercado-Hood (3-for-6) leading the hit parade. In a game that went back-and-forth with each team taking new leads, the Toreros scored 3 runs in the 8th inning to take a 7-6 lead. The Lions answered with 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th in jumping out to a 10-7 lead. That set-up USD's exciting 9th inning. With one-out in the bottom of the ninth and the clock hitting 10:00 p.m., the lights went out at Page Stadium and there was a 17-minute delay before play was resumed. Prior to the delay LMU's Billy Wilson had reached first on via a walk. With the game back on, he would steal second and advance to third on a throwing error. Teaney would then get a big strikeout against Kyle Dozier, and close out the game when Phil Caulfield would ground out to Roman Garcia at first base.

For the game the Toreros blasted four home runs. Besides Riley and McCready in the big 9th inning, Jay Schuyler homered to left center in the third inning, and Brhet Bewley homered in USD's 3-run 8th inning that was good for 2 RBI.

LMU was paced by Phil Caulfield (3-for-6 with 3 runs, 2 RBI) and Jamey Smart (3-for-4, 1 run, 2 RBI). Harrison Simon took the loss for the Lions and now falls to 2-2 on the season. These two teams meet up again on Saturday in a 6:00 p.m. contest.
