SAN DIEGO — University of San Diego right-hander Tom Seyler allowed 13 hits and 7 runs but pitched a complete game as the Toreros beat Nevada-Reno, 8-7, in the second game of a West Coast Athletic Conference doubleheader Saturday at USD. UNR won the first game, 11-1.
With the Toreros ahead 7-5 in eighth inning, first baseman Sean Baron hit a bases-empty home run. USD needed that run because Wolf Pack third baseman Jeff Lawrence hit a two-run homer in the ninth.
Baron and Robbie Rogers each drove in two runs for USD, and center fielder David Jacas went 3 for 5. The win gives Seyler a 4-2 record. Andy Smith (2-2) took the loss for the Wolf Pack.
In the opener, UNR first baseman John Preciado had three doubles and four RBIs, and catcher Jim Puzey had two hits and drove home three runs. The Toreros' only run came on a third-inning home run by Jacas.
