However it wasn’t the usual way of hitting and base running that won the game for the home team. San Diego pitching through 4 2/3 innings of work hit seven Oregon batters. It also helped that Oregon Starting Pitcher Brando Tessar, in throwing for the second time in a week has thrown 14 scoreless inning for George Horton giving them a six game winning streak as they head back into Pac-12 Conference play this week.
At the plate on Monday Mitchell Tolman came through with a hit, but also was walked twice in the game.
