The 18th-ranked University of San Diego men's baseball team dropped the first of a three -game set against Loyola Marymount in the last home series at Cunningham Stadium.
After LMU got on the board first with runs in both the first and second frames to take a 2-0 lead, the Lions sent 13 batters to the plate for an eight-run third inning to take an 10-0 lead. The inning was highlighted by a two-run home run to left field by Lions third baseman Alex Guthrie.
After tagging on another run in the fifth, the Toreros tossed their first scoreless inning in the fifth before Lions second baseman Cullen Mahoney sent a two-run home run over the right field fence for the 13-0 lead.
Paul Sewald (8-2) was saddled with the loss in his four innings of work allowing seven earned runs with five strikeouts and three walks. Max Homick pitched well in five relief innings, allowing two earned runs on six hits.
Lions' starting pitcher Colin Welmon went the distance in his complete game performance, allowing just five hits, one earned run, six strikeouts and no walks. Robinson, Connor Joe, Kris Bryant, Bryan Haar and Austin Bailey each added a hit for the Toreros.
The Toreros and Lions face off tomorrow in game two at Cunningham Stadium with first pitch slated at 1 p.m.
