SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego baseball team recorded a season-high 25 hits, en route to a season-high 22 runs, as they completed a sweep over the University of Portland Sunday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at Fowler Park.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 31-21 overall, finish in a tie for second in the WCC at 15-9, and have clinched a spot in the WCC Tournament. With the loss, the Pilots fall to 17-32 overall and 8-12 in the WCC.
Kris Bryant led the team's offense, as he went 5-for-7 with two home runs, a double and four RBI in his final home game. Austin Green also had an incredible day at the plate, as he went 4-for-4 with two home runs, a double and six RBI. AJ Robinson also a productive day at the plate, as the senior went 4-for-5 with a triple, and one RBI. As a team, USD recorded six home runs in the victory. This also marked the first time USD has scored 22 runs in a game since the defeated the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 22-1 in an elimination game at the Tempe Regional on June 5, 2010. USD won that game 22-1.
Dylan Covey (4-4) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed two runs on seven hits in 6.0 innings of work, while striking out five. Portland's Matt McCallister (2-5) was saddled with the loss for the Pilots, as he allowed 10 runs on 11 hits in 2.1 innings of work.
The Pilots got on the scoreboard first, as they managed to push across one run in the top of the first inning. The Portland run came on Brian Frattali RBI single up the middle, scoring Nick Armenta, who had singled, to give the visitors a brief 1-0 lead.
San Diego responded by scoring six runs in the bottom half of the inning on six hits. Bryant led off the frame with a single to left field, and he moved to third on Robinson's single through the right side. After Robinson stole third, Connor Joe hit an RBI single up the middle, scoring Bryant and moving Robinson to third. Green then reached on a fielder's choice sacrifice bunt, which scored Robinson from third, and moved Joe to third. Back-to-back-to-back RBI singles by Louie Lechich, Andrew Daniel, and Dillon Haupt scored the next three runs and the final run came on a Dillon Checkal RBI groundout to give USD a 6-1 lead.
USD never looked back, as they went on to score two runs in the second, five in the third, four in the fifth and two in the seventh to cap their scoring for the day. Meanwhile, the Pilots scored one run in the sixth and three in the ninth to put the game at its final of 22-5.
The Toreros will return to action on Tuesday, as they head up to play UC Riverside in a 6 p.m. non-conference game at the Riverside Sports Complex.
