Box Score

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The USD Softball team (6-10) won both their games in day two of the Highlander Classic Saturday. Cassidy Coleman led the Toreros to a 2-0 win against Utah State in the morning with a complete game shutout. In game two, Chloe Kaneko and Mary Grabowski powered the Toreros to a 6-3 win over UC Riverside with three RBI a piece.

Coleman struck out ten Aggies while holding them to two hits in a complete game shutout in the first game of the day. The Toreros got both of their runs in the third inning when they strung together five hits. With two outs and the bases loaded, Grabowski and Olivia Sandusky hit back-to-back RBI singles to give the Toreros two runs, which was all they would need.

Coleman's (2-4) dominate performance helped her pick up her second win of the season, while her teammates knocked Utah State's Noelle Johnson around with ten hits, the Toreros' most since February 9 at UNLV.

In game two, Riverside opened up a 2-0 lead in the second with a pair of RBI singles off Grace Hernandez, who was making her first start of the season.

The Toreros answered back the next inning with two runs of their own to tie the game up. With two outs and the bases loaded, Grabowski hit a two RBI single to rightfield to bring home Dana Prelsnik and pinch runner Kylie McNutt.

The Toreros loaded the bases again in the following inning, this time it was Chloe Kaneko who delivered the big hit, a bases clearing double in the right centerfield gap. Two batters later Mary Grabowski delivered once again, knocking in Morgan Kurtz from second to give the Toreros a 6-2 edge. For the day Grabowski went 4-7 with four RBI.



Jenny Lahitte relieved Hernandez in the third inning and only allowed one run on two hits in 4.1 innings pitched. Her only blip on the radar was a bases loaded walk in the fourth inning that brought the score to 6-3. Lahitte (4-5) only allowed one more hit over the final three innings and picked up her fourth win of the season. She is now just five strikeouts away from moving into second place on the USD all-time career strikeouts list.

The Toreros will wrap up the Highlander Classic tomorrow when they face Idaho State at 9:00 a.m. and UC Riverside at 2:00 p.m.
