UCSD Baseball Explodes

The UCSD baseball team split a doubleheader against Vanguard at home Saturday.

Pitching took the afternoon off during the first game as Vanguard won a four-hour offensive slugfest 17-11.

UCSD’s Ryan Larson scored three runs, and teammate Chad Addison drove in three.

Vanguard’s Ryan Williams picked up the win, allowing three runs on five hits. The Tritons’ Erik Snyder got the loss after allowing four runs in one inning of work.

The second of the two games was more to UCSD’s liking, as they won 6-4.

The game was called after six innings because of darkness.

The Tritons’ Andy Hanau picked up the victory, striking out seven batters.

Vanguard’s Brian Wood was given the loss after allowing three runs in one-third of an inning.

Offensively, six different Tritons scored, and Chris Tallman and Blair Suzuki each drove in a pair of runs.

Next up for UCSD is a pair of road games. First, the Tritons travel to the University of Redlands for a game Friday at 2:30 p.m., then they head to Concordia University in Irvine for a game Saturday at 11 a.m.
