UCSD started strong with a solid first inning as sophomore catcher Nick LaFace bombed one to leftfield, putting the Tritons up 1-0. The Broncos came back in the bottom of the inning with three hits for two runs. The Broncos stayed up for the rest of the game despite a rally in the top of the sixth, when UCSD junior infielder Sam Michaels singled to right and was batted in off sophomore Scott Liske’s first homerun.
The UCSD track and field team will travel to Cal State Stanislaus for the CCAA Championships this weekend in hopes of continuing its record-setting performance from last year. Both the men’s and women’s teams finished second last season, which was the highest ever on the men’s side.
