FOWLER PARK – The USD Toreros closed out their home schedule with a 12-7 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils. Paul Kunst led the offensive efforts with a 4-for-5 night with two runs and one RBI. Brhet Bewley added three hits in five at-bats and Jay Schuyler finished 2-for-5 with two runs and three RBI, including his 6th home run of the season.

The Sun Devils scored one run in the first off of Torero starter Nick Sprengel, but with one out and the bases loaded, Sprengel got Alika Williams to hit into an inning ending double play. ASU tacked on a run in the second when Hunter Bishop walked and scored on Zach Hogueisson’s RBI double to right center. ASU extended their lead to 5-0 in the third with Hunter Bishop hitting a two-run home run to right field for the key hit in the inning.

Paul Kunst doubled off the left field wall with two outs in the bottom of the third for USD’s first hit against Sun Devil starter Sam Romero, but the Toreros were unable to capitalize. ASU added two more in the 4th inning on a Hunter Jump two-run single before Jeff Houghtby made an outstanding play for an inning ending double play from third to first.

Brhet Bewley led off with a double to right center in the bottom of the 4th. Adam Kerner would single to left but the Sun Devils would cut down Bewley at home plate to end the inning. ASU made it five innings in a row with at least one run scored when designated hitter Zach Hogueisson hit a home run to dead center off of Travis Kuhn to push their lead to 8-0.

Kevin Collard opened the bottom of the 5th with the team’s third double of the game. With two outs Kunst hit his second double of the game, this time to right field, to get the Toreros on the scoreboard with Collard scoring from third base.

Carter Aldrete hit his second home run of the season to dead center in the 6th to make it 9-1. In the bottom of the 6th Jeff Houghtby collected USD’s fifth double of the game but was stranded there by Romero.

Collard belted a triple to right to open the bottom of the 7th and scored on Connor Doyle’s groundout to third to make it 9-2. Paul Kunst followed Connor Doyle’s walk with a single, his third hit of the game. Jay Schuyler lined a single to right to score Doyle and move Kunst to third. Lefty Connor Higgins came in for Romero who left after 6 1/3 innings of work. A wild pitch would plate Kunst and Bewley would follow with a hard hit single up the middle to score Schuyler to pull the Toreros within 9-5.

ASU added two unearned runs in the 8th and one in the 9th to push their lead up to 12-5. In the bottom of the 9th Jay Schuyler blasted a two-run shot to left to pull USD to within 12-7.

For ASU (20-27), Hunter Jump went 1-for-2 with 4 RBI, and Zach Hogueisson finished 3-for-5 with two doubles and a home run. Romero was the winning pitcher as he improves to 2-1. Torero starter Nick Sprengel was on the losing end for San Diego.

The Toreros (21-29) will close out the 2018 campaign with a 5-game road trip to the Pacific Northwest. It begins on Friday with a 3-game WCC series at Portland, followed by back-to-back games at No. 3 Oregon State on Monday and Tuesday.
