Toreros comeback comes up short, fall 8-6 to LMU
Connor Joe lifted his third home run of the season Saturday

May 12, 2012

Box Score

The 18th-ranked University of San Diego Toreros made a charge in the late innings but it was not enough to defeat Loyola Marymount in an 8-6 loss.

The Lions jumped out to the early 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning, highlighted by Cullen Mahoney's solo home run to right field. The Lions tagged on two runs in the fifth and another in the sixth to extend their lead to 7-0.

The Toreros began to chip away in the bottom of the sixth inning after AJ Robinson led off the inning with a single to right field and eventually scored on Corey LeVier's groundout to second base. San Diego scored again in the bottom of the seventh on a Connor Joe solo home run to left field to cut the Lions' lead to 7-2.

After LMU tagged on another run in the top of the eighth the Toreros put together a three-run inning to make it an 8-5 game. After Andrew Daniel lifted a solo home run, Kris Bryant reached base on an error and Corey LeVier followed with a two-run home run for the third Toreros' home run of the afternoon.

In the bottom of the ninth and one out, the Toreros had runners on second and third. Andrew Daniel singled down the left field line to score Austin Bailey and trim the lead to 8-6. But that would be all the Toreros would get as they dropped just their second series of West Coast Conference play.

Toreros' starting pitcher Calvin Drummond (8-5) lasted just 1.2 innings, allowing four earned runs and four walks with five hits and two strikeouts.

The Lions received their second consecutive solid outing from their starting pitching staff, as Trevor Megill (5-6) tossed seven strong innings, allowing just two earned runs, seven hits, 12 strikeouts and no walks.



The Toreros were led offensively by Corey LeVier (2-for-5, three RBI), Austin Bailey (3-for-4, one run), Conner Joe (2-for-4, one run and one RBI) and Andrew Daniel (2-for-5, two RBI and one run).

The Toreros and Lions return to action for the final game at Cunningham Stadium tomorrow at 1 p.m.
