All six of the Trojan homers came in the first three innings as the wind was whipping out to right all game. Adrian Colon-Rosado got the party started with a three-run shot in the first inning and would post a two-homer day after hitting a solo-shot in the second as well. Colon-Rosado's homer in the second was the third in a row for USC in the inning, as D'Andre Smith and Tyresse Turner also had solo-shots.
 
Tyler Lozano hit a three-run homer in the third and Rhylan Thomas followed one batter later with a two-run shot. Thomas's homer was part of a five-hit day for the Trojan centerfielder.
 
The Matadors scored two runs in both the second and fourth, and then added a fifth in the seventh inning and one in the ninth. USC came back with four in the eighth and one in the ninth. CSUN was down to its last out in the ninth, when Sebastian Garcia hit a grand slam to make it 16-10
