Game 1 Box Score

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The University of San Diego softball team finished up play at the Amy S. Harrison Classic at UC Riverside by splitting their doubleheader on Sunday. The Toreros (6-6) rallied for an 8-6 comeback victory over Boise State in the morning before falling to UCR 4-1 in the afternoon contest.

Caitlin Rooney was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate in game one, adding an RBI. Charly Swanberg connected for her first home run as a Torero to go along with three RBI against Boise State, while Tatum Schultz also recorded her first-career multi-hit game, going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI.

USD fell in a quick 5-0 hole after three innings against the Broncos (7-7). USD starter Jenny Lahitte allowed an uncharacteristic five earned runs in 2.1 innings of work. Grace Hernandez (1-0) came in in relief of Lahitte and proceeded to quiet the Boise State offense, only allowing one earned run in 3.2 innings pitched while scattering six hits and striking out five to earn her first collegiate win.

The Toreros climbed back in it with big innings in the fourth and fifth. USD got runners on second and third with one out in the bottom half of the fourth when Swanberg blasted her home run over the left-centerfield fence to cut the Boise State lead to 5-3.

USD then erupted for five runs in the bottom of the fifth to take the lead, highlighted by Schultz's two-out two-run double to right field that gave the Toreros an 8-5 advantage.

The Broncos came right back in the top of the sixth to tack on another run with an RBI single, but Hernandez was able to hold the lead.

 

 

Boise State got their first two runners on base in the top of the seventh trying to mount a comeback but Cassidy Coleman came on in relief for USD with runners on first and second and no outs to get the next three hitters in order and pick up her first save of the season.

In game two the Torero bats struggled to get going as USD only registered three hits against UC Riverside (5-9). Coleman (3-3) turned in another strong pitching performance, throwing 6.0 innings, allowing only two earned runs on three hits while striking out 11 for the second time in three days. However, four USD errors gave the Highlanders some extra opportunities that they were able to take advantage of.

UC Riverside did most of their damage in the bottom of the third, using three USD errors in that inning to push across three runs. The Highlanders added their final run in the bottom of the fifth by scoring on a wild pitch.

The Toreros were able to pick up one run in the top of the seventh with a two-out solo home run by Chloe Kaneko, her first of the season. Swanberg then singled up the middle to try to get a rally going but that runner was ultimately stranded to end the game.

USD went 3-2 in the tournament overall, picking up victories over Weber State, UC Riverside and Boise State.

The Toreros return to action Mar. 1-3 when they co-host the San Diego Classic I along with San Diego State. USD opens the tournament against Utah State (4:30 pm) and New Mexico (7 pm) at the USD Softball Complex on Friday, Mar. 1.
