After taking a home series from Pepperdine last weekend in the rain and wind, the Bulldogs headed to sunny San Diego to face the No. 19 ranked Toreros in the second WCC series of the season. GU took the first of three games Thursday, but lost the remaining two to drop the series to USD.
Thursday, the Zags drove in six to take the contest 6-2. Seniors Alex Stanford and Maxx Garrett each drove in two runs, with Royce Bolinger and Payden Cawley Lamb bringing home the other two. Tyler Olson was the starting pitcher for GU, and tossed the entire game, including four K’s.
On Friday, Stanford and junior Billy Moon brought in the runs, as Eric Lane and Cawley Lamb scored for the Bulldogs. Andy Hunter started on the mound, earning nine strikeouts in seven and a third innings. GU lost the game 5-2.
In the Saturday game, Moon threw the first seven innings, striking out four Toreros in seven innings. The Bulldogs lost 5-3, with RBI’s coming from juniors Clayton Eslick and Brock Slavin, and Cawley Lamb. Lane, Eslick, and Cawley Lamb crossed home plate in the game as well.
After using Easter Sunday as a travel day, the Zags will head to Seattle to play in state rival University of Washington Monday and Tuesday. GU is now 20-9 on the season, and 3-3 in the WCC.
