Toreros trample Lobos to capture series victory

The New Mexico baseball team is probably glad to put San Diego in the rearview mirror.

UNM suffered a 17-2 shellacking at the hands of the host Toreros, who took two of three in the season-opening series on Sunday.

Senior right-hander Josh Walker (0-1) was pummeled, allowing nine runs on 10 hits in four-plus innings of work.

Louie Lechich, the second USD batter of the game, belted a solo home run to right field to put his team ahead for good. Troy Conyers would add a two-run homer to right-center to cap the first inning outburst.

The Toreros tagged Walker for four runs in the second inning and two more in the fifth, chasing the Lobos' starter.

USD would put an exclamation point on the day with a seven-run seventh inning, torching UNM freshmen relievers Conner Rusch and Preston Ryan.

Aaron Siple's RBI double in the sixth inning and John Pustay's two-out, RBI single in the ninth was all the offense the Lobos could muster against four Toreros pitchers.

UNM will play at Arizona State on Tuesday before returning home Friday at 4 p.m. to face Northern Illinois.
