Game 1 Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Torero softball squad was dealt a pair of losses by BYU on Saturday afternoon at the USD Softball Complex. The Toreros (15-16, 0-4) struggled to get the bats going all afternoon and committed a total of five errors as they fell 5-0 in game one and 3-0 in game two.

Both teams started game one slow offensively until BYU (14-15, 4-0) put up a three spot in the top of the third. The Cougars picked up three unearned runs in the inning off of USD starter Cassidy Coleman; one was walked in with the bases loaded and the other two came in by way of a two-out bases-loaded single.

The Cougars came right back in the top of the fourth and tacked on a pair of runs to add to their lead. BYU picked up one with an RBI groundout to second base, followed by a dropped pop up by USD in shallow left field that allowed the second run to score, giving BYU a 5-0 advantage.

USD had plenty of opportunities in game one but was unable to come up with the big hit. The Toreros, who finally notched their first hit in the bottom of the fifth, had runners in scoring position with one out or less in four different innings.

Coleman (8-7) took the loss for the Toreros after throwing 7.0 innings, allowing five runs (one earned) on seven hits, while striking out seven and walking three.

Things didn't start out much better for the Toreros in game two as BYU scored two runs in the top of the first when USD starter Jenny Lahitte hit a batter with the bases loaded and then left fielder Kylie McNutt dropped a fly ball in left field that allowed another run to score. Lahitte was able to work out of the bases-loaded jam by retiring the next three hitters in order though.

 

 

BYU added another run with an RBI fielder's choice in the top of the fourth that increased their lead to 3-0, which would end up being all the Cougars would need to complete the sweep.

USD had runners on base in six of the seven innings but failed to drive any in.

Lahitte (6-9) was saddled with the loss, tossing 7.0 innings where she allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits, while striking out four and walking two.

Chloe Kaneko ripped a pair of base hits for USD as she led the Torero offense with a 2-for-3 day at the plate in game two.

USD continues PCSC play on the road on Mar. 29 and 30 when they travel to Moraga, Calif. for a four-game set at Saint Mary's.
