Tritons Come Back From Break to Win Doubleheader from Toreros
This past Saturday, April 2nd, the Tritons took both games from USD to add two victories to their non-conference resume. In the first game, senior Andrew Hinkle took the mound and fought through some rust to hold the Toreros to 1 run over four innings. The Tritons were held to a couple of runs through the first time through the lineup but then exploded for 8 runs in the fourth inning to take a commanding 8-1 lead. Senior Tommy Valles led the way with a 3 for 4 day. The Tritons managed to score three more runs behind junior Kevin Nieh to mercy USD to a score of 11-1 after six innings.
In the second game, sophomore Andrew Campos made his return to the team by shutting down the Toreros to 1 run over four innings with 5 strikeouts. The Tritons scored four runs in the second inning behind big hits from freshman Jared Vitug, senior Shane Sudsbury, and senior Matthew Demarest. Those four runs stood up for the rest of the game behind three strong innings from junior Yousef Koutnik. The Tritons won the second game 4-1.
The Tritons look to continue their winning ways in conference this weekend against Cal State Long Beach with a doubleheader on Saturday with game times at 10am and 1pm and a 9-inning game on Sunday with game time of 10am at Valhalla High School. Hope to see everyone out there with some support!
