The Toros relied heavily on pitchers Lauren Harper and Stephanie Jimenez to shut out the No. 10-ranked Tritons.

Neither team recorded a hit until the Toros put two runners on base in the third inning. It wasn’t until the fifth inning that the Tritons looked dangerous, when Caitlin Brown sent a single to right center. Emily McQuaid pinch-ran for Brown, finding her way to third base off a Sarah Woofter ground-out that followed by a bunt from Jennifer De Fazio. With men on first and third, Katrin Gabriel tried a bunt for the RBI, but McQuaid was thrown out at home. Mya Romero lined out to end the inning.

The Toros capitalized on a pair of Triton errors in the fifth and the sixth to collect two unearned runs and seal the win. Romero had a rough game, as her errors allowed both base runners that would eventually come around to score.

Camille Gaito (12-1) suffered her first loss of the season, allowing the two runs on three hits while going the distance.

A pair of Triton miscues to open the second game of the doubleheader gave the Toros an early 2-0 lead, and couldn’t get enough offense to close the gap.

The Tritons mustered two hits in the second inning, with Woofter and McQuaid getting on base, but the two were left stranded.

It wasn’t until the sixth inning that the Tritons recorded a run, when Romero swung for a single and scored off of a Nicole Spangler single. The Tritons went three up, three down in the seventh inning to end the game. Jen Manuel (2-1) took the loss after allowing two runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Sepulveda and Romero went 2-for-3, while Woofter went 2-for-4 in the Tritons’ 7-0 win over the Toros on Saturday.

The Tritons opened the game with a run from Esther Strom off a Woofter RBI.

UCSD pitcher Camille Gaito (13-1) kept the Toros scoreless, pitching a full seven innings for the Tritons, allowing just three walks and three hits while recording three strikeouts.

The Tritons got back on the board in the fifth inning with a single brought by Nicole Spangler in Romero and Sepulveda.

UCSD finished the Toros off with a four-run sixth inning.  Rhiannon Ousley earned an RBI on a sacrifice bunt that scored Woofter. Romero followed with a single to left field, which sent two more runners in to score. Kristin Omori, pinch hitting for Strom, bunted to bring Romero home, collecting her first RBI.

The last game of the series was a pitching battle, with only three hits from the Tritons and Toros collectively.

UCSD had two of the hits, both by Kris Lesovsky, but the Tritons stranded her on both occasions and remained scoreless.

Dominguez was once again able to capitalize on a bit of bad luck from the Tritons, as Krista Gould got on base in the fourth inning after being hit by a pitch and Jessica Hall was walked. Stephanie Jimenez followed by hitting a double to right field, which sent Gould and Hall in to score.

Tess Granath (5-4) took the loss, giving up the lone hit but walking four in 5 2/3 innings of work.
