USD Baseball: San Diego Storms Back for Win at USC

San Diego baseball (14-4, 2-1 WCC) stormed back for a 6-5 comeback win at USC (9-7, 3-0 Pac-12) on Tuesday night, earning its 14th victory in its last 16 games.

Junior Shane McGuire delivered a RBI double down the right field line in the top of the ninth inning to tie the game at five runs apiece, then true freshman Jack Costello pushed across the go-ahead run with an RBI infield single to second base to move the score to 6-5 in favor of USD.

Costello was a team-best 5-5 with an RBI and a run scored on Tuesday night, stretching his hit streak to 12 games with the best offensive performance of his young USD career. That 12-game span has included 10 total multi-hit performances and two separate streaks of five (3/6-3/13 and 3/14-present) consecutive contests with more than one hit.

The Toreros trailed for nearly the entirety of the game, falling behind after the Trojans plated an early unearned run. USC would stretch its lead to as many as four runs in the contest's middle frames before San Diego began to mount its comeback.

The Toreros return to action this evening when they host West Coast Conference foe Pacific for a three-game set at Fowler Park. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
