San Diego Finishes USD Invitational With 6-2 Win Over St. John's

Feb. 27, 2005

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The San Diego Toreros (3-6) used fundamental softball early and then broke the game open in the fifth to win 6-2 over St. John's (4-5) to conclude the USD Invitational on Sunday afternoon.

San Diego, the designated visiting team, used a leadoff walk, followed by a sacrifice bunt, fielder's choice and wild pitch to take a 1-0 lead in the top of the first. After the Red Storm tied it in the bottom of the first, the Toreros took a 2-1 lead in the third on a suicide squeeze bunt by Nichole Valenzuela, scoring Rebekah Bradford.

They scored another run in the fourth without recording a hit to take a 3-1 lead. Danielle Treiber drew a leadoff walk, advanced to second on a sacrifice by Marissa Merchain, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a grounder to short.

The Toreros broke the game open in the fifth, recording three runs on three hits, including a two-out two-RBI base hit by Merchain. St. John's added a run in the bottom of the fifth to finish the scoring at 6-2. Erin Harmonson started on the mound for the Toreros, pitching four innings for her second win of the year.

USD next plays at San Diego State on Wednesday, March 9 at 7:00pm.
