Los Angeles, Calif. – The USD Toreros dropped a tough 4-3 decision in 8 innings at Loyola Marymount today in WCC action. Senior Olivia Sandusky powered a 2-run homer in the top of the 8th to give the Toreros a 3-1 advantage, but the host Lions rallied with 3 runs in the bottom of the inning to escape with the victory.

The game was 0-0 until LMU got on the board first in the 5th when Irma Sanchez’s single scored Taylor Lockwood from second. USD followed with a single run in the 6th, tying the game at 1-1, the score would remain taking the teams into extra inning softball. USD’s run was scored by Taylor Spence who opened with a single and eventually scored when Lauren Kane reached base on an error.

Following Sandusky’s blast in the 8th, LMU collected 4 hits on the way to 3 runs. With two outs, and runners on first and second, Irma Sanchez singled to left that scored Caitlin Harman from second base for the walk-off victory. Sanchez finished 3-for-4 with 2 RBI. Hannah Bandimere pitched 7.0 innings, but Andy Wellins (7-11) got the win in relief.

The Toreros were paced by Sandusky (2-4, 1 run, 2 RBI) and sophomore Taylor Spence (2-3, 1 run). It was Sandusky’s team-leading 7th homer of the season. Senior Megan Sabbatini (10-13) pitched 5.1 innings, giving up 7 hits and 3 runs, while striking out 8.

These two teams will wrap up WCC play tomorrow with a doubleheader beginning at 12 noon.
