Reyes Leads Baseball To Pac-10 Sweep Against Washington State
May 14, 2001
LOS ANGELES -- Sophomore pitcher Anthony Reyes (Whittier/California HS) threw his first complete game, striking out a career-high 12 batters Monday and the No. 2 USC Trojans completed a Pac-10 series sweep with a 5-1 win against the Washington State Cougars at Dedeaux Field.
The Trojans are now two games ahead of Stanford in the conference standings. USC (36-16, 16-5) travels to Oregon State next weekend. If Stanford records a sweep at Washington State next weekend, the Trojans can still win a share of the conference title with one win and can win it outright with two wins. USC has not won a conference title since 1996.
USC got its first run in the first inning when Alberto Concepcion hit an RBI single to left, scoring Anthony Lunetta. Junior first baseman Bill Peavey, who went 3-for-3 on the afternoon, hit an RBI single in the third to score Brian Barre.
Reyes (3-3) at one point struck out the side twice, in the second and ninth innings, and allowed five hits and no walks. Washington State (15-35, 6-15) scored an unearned run when USC second baseman Rafael Torres botched a ground ball, scoring Justin Williams.
The Trojans added three runs off Jamin Svendsen (2-2) in the sixth on an RBI single by Michael Moon and two-run single by Torres.
USC will complete its home regular season schedule with a 5 p.m. game on Tuesday (May 15) vs. Long Beach State before traveling to Oregon State. All games will be broadcast live on the Internet at www.usctrojans.com.
