Baseball Game Postponed Until Saturday
Calvin Drummond will start game one on Saturday.

April 13, 2012

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The baseball game scheduled between the 19th-ranked University of San Diego and La Salle University for this afternoon at 3 p.m. has been cancelled, due to inclement weather in the San Diego area. The two teams will now play a double-header on Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. The pitching rotations will remain the same, with USD starting right-hander Calvin Drummond in game one and La Salle starting lefty Eric Van Wyk.

The Toreros enter the game with an overall record of 26-8, and a 7-2 mark in the WCC, which is good for first place. USD is coming off a 6-2 victory over cross-town rival San Diego State this past Monday to complete a season-sweep of the Aztecs. USD's offense is paced by preseason All-American Kris Bryant, who is hitting .372 with 48 hits, nine doubles, two triples, eight home runs, and 37 RBI. On the mound, the weekend rotation is anchored down by Drummond, who is 6-2 with a 2.93 ERA, and he has 47 strikeouts. USD is under the direction of 14th-year head coach Rich Hill.

The Explorers enter the game with an overall record of 16-16 after picking up a 11-4 win over Penn this past Wednesday. Junior Joe Bennie (.299), senior Adam Kammler (.293) and senior Marc Schoch (.291) are also nearing the .300 mark. Kammler is fifth nationally in hit by pitches (14) and is second in the A-10 in on-base percentage at .491, while senior Brendan Norton is second nationally in walks (43). He is tied with Kammler in on-base percentage as well. On the mound, Van Wyk, Christy and Donahue form one of the league's most consistent starting rotations. Van Wyk paces the team in wins and innings. He is moving up on La Salle's all-time lists and now is third in innings (241.2), fifth in career wins (13) and sixth in strikeouts (153). His 3.18 ERA is tenth in the A-10.

This will be the first meeting between these two schools in baseball.
