SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Sophomore Troy Conyers' first career walk-off home run lifted San Diego to a thrilling 5-3, 10-inning win against No. 8 Cal State Fullerton Tuesday evening in a non-conference game at Fowler Park.

With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Josh Goossen-Brown got things started with a single through the left side. Conyers then stepped to the plate, and he sent a fastball over the right field fence to lift the Toreros to victory.

With the win, the Toreros have now won three consecutive games, posted three wins against ranked teams and have improved to 11-4 overall. With the loss, the Titans fall to 8-6 overall.

The Toreros got on the scoreboard first, as they pushed across one run in the bottom of the second inning. Jesse Jenner got things started when he was hit by a pitch. Kyle Holder then doubled to left-center field, which drove in Jenner to give USD a 1-0 lead.

The Titans then evened the score in the top of the fourth inning, scoring one run on two hits. The CSF run came on a bases-loaded hit batter to move the score to 1-1.

CSF then took advantage of a USD fielding error to score a pair of unearned runs in the top of the sixth inning, before USD rallied back in the bottom of the eighth inning to score two runs on a Brandon DeFazio two-run double to left center, knotting the score at three.

Offensively for the Toreros, Goossen-Brown, Louie Lechich and Austin Bailey each went 2-for-5, while Defazio went 1-for-1 with a double, and two RBI, and Conyers went 1-for-2 with two RBI and the home run.

Max MacNabb (1-0) picked up the win on the mound for the Toreros, as he allowed no runs on no hits in 1.1 innings of work. Fullerton's J.D. Davis (1-1) was saddled with the loss for the Titans, as he allowed two runs on three hits n 2.0 innings of work.

The Sweet 16 of college basketball nicknames and the stories behind them

Welcome to the Sweet 16. No, not that Sweet 16, but the bracket for the Great Nickname Showdown in Division I. That way we can decide a national champion – March Madness for monikers, even if it’s December.A word or two about criteria. Uniqueness counted heavily, as did quirkiness. But an interesting back story also scored highly. Since there are no metrics for nicknames – couldn’t find one thing on KenPom – no seeding was done. This Sweet 16 was bracketed by a blind draw, which might leave the NCAA selection committee aghast.
