Box Score

MALIBU, Calif. - The 24th-ranked University of San Diego baseball team outlasted No. 22 Pepperdine University, 5-4, in 11 innings Friday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at Eddy D Field.

With the win, the Toreros improve to 34-17 overall, move to 16-9 in the WCC and have now won seven of their last eight games. With the loss, the Waves fall to 32-14 overall and 15-7 in the WCC.

The Toreros got on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across one run on three hits in the top of the first inning. Austin Bailey led off the game with a single, and he moved to second on a wild pitch. Andrew Daniel then drove in Bailey with a RBI single to center field to give USD a 1-0 lead.

The Waves, who were getting no hit through three innings, finally got to USD starter Lucas Long in the bottom of the fourth, scoring two runs on two hits. The Pepperdine runs came on Bryan Langlois RBI double, and an Aaron Barnett RBI single to give Pepperdine a 2-1 lead.

USD then went on to score one run in the top of the sixth, eighth and ninth innings, while Pepperdine rallied back to score two in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings.

Then in the top of the 11th inning, USD went to work. With one out, Brandon DeFazio got things started with a single, and he moved to second on a Bailey groundout. Connor Joe then hit a RBI single through the left side, scoring Defazio, to lift USD to a 5-4 win.

Offensively for the Toreros, Joe led the way going 2-for-6 with one big RBI in the 11th, while Kyle Holder, Andrew Daniel and Defazio all recorded multiple hits as well.



USD starting pitcher Lucas Long got no decision, despite pitching one of the best game of his career, allowing two runs on four hits, while striking out a career-high 10 batters. Josh Goossen-Brown (3-2) picked up the win on the mound, as he allowed two runs on four hits in 3.1 innings of work. USD dealt Pepperdine's Eric Karch (3-1) his first loss of the season, as he allowed one run on three hits in 2.0 innings of work.

The Toreros and Waves will return to action on Saturday at 1 p.m. as USD looks to take the series.
