PORTLAND, Ore. - The 16th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team dropped a 4-1 decision to the University of Portland in the rubber game of a West Coast Conference series at Joe Etzel Field Sunday afternoon.
With the loss, the Toreros drop to 33-11 overall, move to 10-5 in the WCC and drop only their second series of the season. USD still remains in first place of the WCC despite the loss. With the win, the Pilots improve to 23-16 overall and 10-8 in the WCC.
The Pilots got on the scoreboard first as in the bottom of the third inning, the home team scored two runs on four hits. The two runs came on a Kauppila two-run single to right field.
The Toreros then cut the lead in half in the top of the fourth inning as they scored one run on two hits. AJ Robinson got things started with a single up the middle and two batters later, Andrew Daniel hit a run-scoring double to left field to move the score to 2-1.
Portland then scored a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to put the game at its final of 4-1.
Offensively for the Toreros, Bryan Haar led the way as he went 2-for-3.
Calvin Drummond (7-4) was saddled with the loss on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed four runs, two earned, on 11 hits in 4.2 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Thursday as they travel to Provo, Utah to take on WCC newcomer BYU in a 5 p.m. game.
