April 19, 2003
San Diego, CA- The University of San Diego baseball team completed a dramatic comeback to take a double header and the weekend series from visiting Saint Mary's, winning 18-11 in game one and 6-5 in game two on Saturday. Trailing 5-2 in the eighth inning of the finale, San Diego junior Joey Prast hit a three-run homer to left field and senior Tony Perez added the game-winning hit for a Torero team that moves into first place in the West Coast Conference West Division.
San Diego (22-24; 11-10 WCC) was held scoreless through six innings by Gael starter Gabe Palma, before scoring six runs over the final three frames to come away with the 6-5 win in game two. Prast hit a three-run homer that bounced on top of the left field wall before tying the score at five in the bottom of the eighth inning.
Saint Mary's (16-22-1; 7-10-1 WCC) brought in junior left-hander Matt Yorkin (1-6) moments later. Yorkin would load up the bases in the bottom of the ninth and allow a game-winning hit by USD's Tony Perez to suffer the loss. Perez went the opposite way, looping a high fly into deep right field, over the head of the drawn in defense to score Gavin Ng from third, ending the game and the series.
Perez (2-4) not only provided USD with the winning run, but came on in relief to work two innings and earn the win. Freshman starter Justin Blaine lasted six complete innings for San Diego, scattering seven hits and yielding two runs before giving way to sophomore Brett Gillespie in the seventh.
