PROVO, Utah - The 19th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team once again recorded double-digit hits with 17 en route to completing a three-game sweep of Brigham Young University Saturday afternoon with a 12-6 victory at Larry H. Miller Field.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 36-11 overall, move to 13-5 in the WCC, and remain in sole possession of first place in the conference. With the loss, the Cougars fall to 18-21 overall, and fall to 7-8 in the WCC.
The Toreros got on the scoreboard first, as in the top of the second inning they managed to push across three runs on three hits. Connor Joe got things started with a single to right field and he moved to second on a pass ball. After Austin Bailey drew a walk, Dillon Haupt reached on a fielding error by the third baseman, scoring Joe from second, and moving Bailey to second. After both runners advanced one base on a balk, back-to-back RBI singles by AJ Robinson and Andrew Daniel gave USD a 3-0 lead.
The Cougars then took back a run in the bottom of the second inning on a Brock Whitney RBI single, scoring Jaycob Brugmann, who had singled, to move the score to 3-1.
USD then added to their lead in the top of the fourth inning, scoring a pair of runs on a Louie Lechich two-run single, which scored Robinson, who had singled, and Haupt, who had singled, to give USD a 5-1 edge.
San Diego then added in one more run in the fifth, three more in the seventh, one in the eighth, and two in the ninth, while BYU scored one run in the sixth inning and four in the eighth to put the game at its final of 12-6.
Offensively for the Toreros, Robinson led the way as he went 5-for-6 with three doubles, and three RBI. Daniel (2-for-4), Kris Bryant (2-for-5), Bryan Haar (2-for-6) and Haupt (2-for-5) all recorded multiple hits on the day as well.
Calvin Drummond (8-4) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed one run on four hits, while striking out six in 5.1 innings of work. BYU's starter, Adam Miller (1-4), was saddled with the loss for the Cougars as he allowed five runs, three earned, on five hits in 3.0 innings of work.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday, when they host UC Irvine in a 3 p.m. non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium.
