Charlie Hurley Pitches Five Scoreless Innings; USC Baseball Beats Wagner 6-2 For 7th Straight Win
LOS ANGELES – The USC baseball team won its seventh straight game on Sunday afternoon, beating Wagner 6-2 to complete a three-game sweep of the Seahawks.
The Trojans scored early, got five strong innings from Charlie Hurley and then rode the bullpen the rest of the way, moving to 9-2 on the year. Wagner falls to 1-8.
USC loaded the bases and put up three runs in the first, getting RBI from Trevor Halsema and Adrian Colon-Rosado in the inning. D'Andre Smith drove in a run in the second to give the Trojans an early 4-0 lead.
Colon-Rosado drove in another run in the seventh and Johnny Olmstead homered in the eighth to cap the scoring. Wagner finally got on the board with a two-run homer in the eighth, but that was it for the visitor's offense.
Hurley scattered four hits in his 5.0 scoreless innings, picking up the victory in his first start at Dedeaux Field. Nate Clow, Garrett Clarke and Matt Keating each had scoreless relief innings.
