UCSD Falls 3–2 to Point Loma


In the top of the third inning, with two outs, freshman Troy Cruz singled up the middle. Cruz was brought home on Siegel’s homer, who went 2-for-3 at the plate.

From there, UCSD went stale. The Tritons recorded just two hits in their remaining six innings, giving Point Loma ample time to gap the deficit. The Sea Lions tied the score in the fifth inning, hitting junior right-hander Sean Rowan up for two runs on three hits in Rowan’s only inning pitched of the game.

UCSD head coach Eric Newman cycled through six different slingers in search of stability against the Sea Lions. San Diego native, freshman Adrian Orozco logged a solid three innings, allowing two hits. Sophomore Chad Rieser recorded the loss.

The Tritons return to conference play this Friday, April 5 to Sunday, April 7 against Cal State San Bernardino.
