Baylor Shuts Down Baseball, 8-1, in Saturday Action
Feb. 16, 2002
LOS ANGELES - Pitcher Jared Theodorakos threw a complete-game one-hitter Saturday and the No. 25 Baylor Bears defeated the No. 6 USC Trojans, 8-1, in non-conference action at Dodger Stadium. The Bears have outscored the Trojans by a 26-10 margin in the first two games and look for the series sweep tomorrow.
Baylor (3-3) scored four in the first inning. Third baseman Michael Griffin hit a two-run single to center and scored on a three-base error by USC center fielder Brian Barre when the ball went under his glove and rolled to the wall.
Theodorakos (1-1) was able to keep USC (2-4) off kilter throughout the game and had a no-hitter through 7 1/3 innings until a single to center by third baseman Jon Brewster. Theodorakos struck out 11 and walked only three. The only run he allowed came in the first when a fly ball by Alberto Concepcion was dropped by Baylor center fielder, scoring Barre from second.
USC starter J.P. Howell (1-1) went five innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits with six walks and three strikeouts.
The series will conclude at noon tomorrow (Feb. 17), weather permitting as rain is expected in the Los Angeles area in the morning. The game will be broadcast live on www.usctrojans.com.
