SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind dominating pitching performances from their two senior aces, the Toreros (10-10) extended their win streak to six with two wins over Weber State (11-9) on Thursday evening at the USD Softball Complex. Cassidy Coleman and Jenny Lahitte held the Wildcats to three runs combined, while striking out 21 batters to lift the Toreros to a 4-2 and 6-1 win. With the Toreros win streak, they have evened their record at 10-10.

In game one, Cassidy Coleman and Weber State's MaCauley Flint were locked in a pitcher's duel early on. Both pitchers cruised through the first three innings, allowing only one hit between them. Coleman struck out seven of the first nine batters she faced and struck out the side in the second and third frames.

The Toreros broke the 0-0 tie in the bottom of the fourth. After Flint walked the leadoff batter, Tatum Schultz, she hit Olivia Sandusky with a pitch, and the reigning WCC Player of the Week Mary Grabowski made her pay with a towering three-run home run down the left field line. Grabowski now has four home runs on the year, surpassing her total from all of last season.

The Toreros added to their lead the following inning when freshman Olivia Sandusky laced a double down the rightfield line to bring home Dana Prelsnik, who reached on an error.

The Wildcats threatened in the top of the sixth after their first two batters singled and advanced on a wild pitch, but Coleman retired the next three batters in order to get out of the jam.

Weber State finally got some runs on the board in the final inning, with a solo home run and a RBI single, but it was too little too late for the Wildcats.

Flint (7-3) took the loss after giving up three runs on three hits in four innings pitched. Cassidy Coleman (4-4) earned the win, allowing two runs on five hits. She has struck out exactly ten batters in her last three starts.

In game two, the Wildcats struck first, scoring one run after three singles in the top of the third. Their starting pitcher, Kylee Colvin, held the Toreros at bats for the first four innings and at one point retired 12 batters in a row.

However, the Torero offense exploded in the bottom of the fifth inning when they sent 11 batters to the plate while bringing home six. Caitlin Rooney got it started with a leadoff single up the middle. Kylie McNutt pinch ran for her and was advanced to second on a Charley Swanberg sacrifice bunt. A pair of singles by Danielle Mavridis and Kylie Ordos brought home the tying run, but the Toreros were just getting started. Pinch-hitter Chloe Kaneko was hit by a pitch to load the bases and then Dana Prelsnik hit a dribbler in the infield where the Wildcats failed to get a sliding Mavridis at home. Tatum Schultz and Olivia Sandusky hit back to back singles to give the Toreros the lead and then USD scored to more to bring the score to 6-1.

Jenny Lahitte (5-5) gave up just one run on four hits and struck out 11 Wildcats, to give her sole possession of second on the all-time USD strikeouts list. The Toreros will look to keep up their winning ways on Friday in the USD Tournament, where they will face Fairleigh Dickinson at 6:00 p.m.
