USC Baseball Falls at Long Beach State, 11-5
LONG BEACH, Calif. – The USC baseball team dropped a non-conference contest on the road at Long Beach State Wednesday night, falling 11-5 to the Dirtbags.
The Trojans drop to 24-22 overall, while Long Beach State improves to 22-25.
USC capitalized on a Dirtbag error to put up a run in the top of the first, but the lead was short-lived as the home team scored two in the second and five in the third to grab a 7-1 advantage.
Tyresse Turner did his best to give USC life, hitting a three-run homer as part of a four-run fourth, but that was it for the Trojan offense on the day. Long Beach State scored two in the bottom of the fourth and two more in the ninth.
USC used six pitchers on the day, with Nate Clow and Toby Spach recording scoreless relief outings.
- Tyresse Turner: 2-for-4, 3RBI, 2R, 3-R HR
- Rhylan Thomas: 3-for-5, RBI, R, 2B
- Nate Clow: 1.2 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
The Trojans host their final home series of the season, with Washington coming to town for a three-game series starting on Friday. All three games will be broadcast live on the Pac-12 Network.
