Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The ninth-ranked University of San Diego baseball team completed a three-game sweep over the University of San Francisco Sunday afternoon with an 8-2 West Coast Conference win at USD's Cunningham Stadium.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 38-14 overall, 16-2 in the WCC, have won their ninth consecutive game and run their WCC winning streak to 15 games. With the loss, the Dons fall to 24-26 overall and 6-12 in the WCC. USD's magic number to clinch home field advantage in the WCC championship series is no down to one.

The Dons got on the scoreboard first for the third consecutive game as they scored one run on two hits in the top of the third inning. Derek Poppert drove in the first USF run on a run-scoring double to left field to give USF a 1-0 lead.

The Toreros responded in the bottom of the third inning scoring two runs on three hits. Jordan Abruzzo led off the inning with a stand-up double to right field and he advanced to third on a Shane Buschini single to left field. After Buschini moved up one base on a Daniel Magness ground out, Josh Romanski drove in the two runs with a two-run single up the middle to give USD a 2-1 lead.

San Diego added to their lead in the fourth inning scoring three more runs on three hits. Kevin Hansen led off the inning with a walk and he advanced to second on a Mike Metzger ground out to the pitcher. Justin Snyder then moved Hansen to third on a single to right field. Abruzzo loaded the bases when he was hit by a pitch and Buschini drove in the first two runs on a two-run single to right field. Romanski then drove in the final run with a RBI single to give USD a comfortable 5-1 advantage.



The Toreros then put the game out of reach in the bottom of the sixth inning scoring three more runs. The USD runs came on a two-run single by Logan Gelbrich and wild pitch by the USF relief pitcher to move the score to 8-1.

USF took back one run in the top of the ninth inning on a Jonathan Norfolk RBI single to put the game at its final of 8-2.

Offensively for the Toreros, Romanski led the way with his 3-for-5 and three RBI performance. Buschini also recorded three hits going 3-for-4 with two RBI.

Matt Couch (8-2) picked up his career-high eighth win of the season as he allowed one run on six hits, while striking out five in 7.0 innings of work. Tommy Peale (3-2) was saddled with the loss for the Dons as he allowed eight runs on 12 hits in 5.0 innings of work.

The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday as they play their final regular-season home game against UC Irvine in a 3 p.m. non-conference game at Cunningham Stadium.
