SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD Softball team (13-10) stayed hot on Saturday, knocking off Seattle 6-2 and Weber State 7-4 in day two of the USD Tournament. That runs the Toreros' win streak to nine games, their longest streak since winning 11 in a row in 2011.

In game one, the Toreros jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the second inning when Danielle Mavridis hit a double to deep left center that brought home Charly Swanberg and Jenny Lahitte.

The Redhawks (10-18) cut their deficit in half in the following inning. Sarah Petosa reached on a leadoff bunt single and then stole second. She was advanced to third on a groundout and scored on a USD error to bring the score to 2-1 USD. Seattle would tie it up in the following inning on a Bubba Morrow solo home run to centerfield.

The Toreros retook the lead in the fifth after stringing together some clutch hits. Kylie Ordos got things started with a leadoff single. Dana Prelsnik followed that with a fielder's choice, and Ordos was safe at second on a Redhawks' error. Tatum Schultz then hit a single to leftfield, which scored Ordos and advanced Prelsnik to third. The Toreros would go on to score two more on a Caitlin Rooney sacrifice fly and a Sandusky groundout.

USD tacked on one more insurance run in the bottom of the sixth. Jenny Lahitte led off with a double to deep leftfield and was then pinch ran for by Morgan Kurtz. During the next at bat, Kurtz stole third and was able to come around to score when the throw from Redhawks catcher Hayley Beckstrom bounced off pinch hitter Kylie Crawford's helmet, giving the Toreros a 6-2 lead, which would be the final score.

Jenny Lahitte (6-5) picked up the win after allowing one earned run on six hits while striking out five. Seattle's Richelle Ashburn (2-3) absorbed the loss, allowing five runs (two earned) on six hits.

In game two, the Toreros once again grabbed an early lead by scoring two runs in the second inning. With runners on second and third, Kylie Ordos hit a single to knock in pinch runner Kylie McNutt and advance Danielle Mavridis to third. The next batter, Morgan Kurtz, brought Mavridis home with a RBI sacrifice fly.

The Wildcats (14-10) came back the following inning to take the lead, taking advantage of a couple Torero defensive miscues to score four runs (two earned). Although the lead wouldn't last long as the Toreros scored five runs on five hits in the bottom of the fourth. Danielle Mavridis crushed a two run homer to left field in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 4-4. Later on in the inning, Tatum Schultz retook the lead with a RBI single up the middle to bring home Morgan Kurtz. The Toreros tacked on two more that inning with a hard hit ball by Mary Grabowski that brought home Dana Prelsnik and Schultz.

The USD pitching staff combined to hold the Wildcats to two earned runs on five hits. Freshman Megan Sabbatini made her first career home start, but struggled with her command and was lifted for Grace Hernandez after allowing four runs (two earned) in 2.1 innings. Hernandez (1-1) earned the win after pitching 2.2 shutout innings and allowing just two hits. Cassidy Coleman finished the job, pitching two scoreless innings to pick up her first save of the season.

The Toreros will look to continue their streak tomorrow when they wrap up the USD Tournament with games against Fairleigh Dickinson (approx. 11:30 a.m.) and Seattle (approx. 2:00 p.m.).
