SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD softball squad fell to Fresno State 8-1 Sunday afternoon at the USD Softball Complex to conclude the San Diego Classic I. The Toreros (7-10) struggled to get the bats going as a team despite a strong individual day at the plate by Dana Prelsnik, who tied her career high with four hits in the game.
Fresno State (13-10) notched the game's first run with an RBI single in the top of the first that gave the Bulldogs an early 1-0 lead.
In the top of the third, Fresno State took advantage of a throwing error by USD catcher Charly Swanberg that allowed a runner to score from third following a steal attempt.
The Bulldogs added two more in the top of the fourth with a two-run single that gave them a 4-0 advantage.
USD finally got runners in scoring position in the bottom of the fourth when they put runners on second and third with one out but were unable to push anyone across as the Toreros went down with a strikeout and foul out.
Cassidy Coleman was forced to leave the game with one out in the top of the sixth after taking consecutive line drives off her calf. One of those drove in a run for Fresno State. The Bulldogs went on to add three more runs in the inning to take an 8-1 lead.
Coleman (4-5) took the loss, throwing 5.1 innings, allowing seven runs (6 ER) on 10 hits while striking out three and walking three. Jenny Lahitte threw 1.2 innings in relief where she allowed one run on two hits with a strikeout.
Kurtz also registered a multi-hit game by going 2-for-3 on the day.
USD returns to action on Tuesday with a doubleheader against South Dakota State starting at 11:30 am at the USD Softball Complex.
