SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD softball team fell in a competitive nonconference game to San Diego State Tuesday night by a score of 4-1 at the USD Softball Complex. The Toreros (19-22) put together some strong at-bats and had a handful of scoring opportunities on the night but were unable to convert.
SDSU (27-14) struck first when they scored on a fielder's choice groundout to shortstop in the top of the second. The Aztecs loaded the bases with no outs before USD starter Jenny Lahitte retired the next three batters in order. However, SDSU was able to plate the one run in the process.
The Toreros came back to tie the game with an RBI fielder's choice of their own in the bottom of the third. With two outs and the bases loaded, Mary Grabowski chopped a ball to the SDSU shortstop who turned and threw to second but did not get the runner, resulting in the tying run scoring.
Both teams traded scoring opportunities throughout the next three innings until the Aztecs regained the lead in the top of the sixth with a two-out pinch-hit triple into the right center gap by Kaitlin Connors, followed by an RBI single up the middle Kayla Jordan that put SDSU up 3-1.
The Aztecs added to their lead in the next inning when Tiffany Corder tripled down the right field line and later came across on a wild pitch by USD reliever Grace Hernandez, giving SDSU their final 4-1 lead.
Lahitte went 5.0 innings in the start, allowing just one unearned run on three hits while walking three and striking out three. Hernandez (1-1) took the loss in relief, throwing 2.0 innings where she allowed three runs on five hits.
Lauren Tomey was 2-for-3 to highlight the Torero offense on the night.
The Toreros resume conference play when they host Utah Valley at home Apr. 20 -21. Both days will feature doubleheaders with Saturday's action starting at 12 pm and Sunday's games beginning at 11 am.
