USD-UT: Pulling a Sorenson

By Glenn Tanner - February 04, 2007

San Diego and Texas have both finally broken through. The Toreros lead 2-1 at the stretch.

The game has seen great pitching and great defense.

Two Texas runners reached base in the 4th, but a 5-4-3 double play ended the inning.

In the 5th, Logan Gelbrich flirted with a two-run homer for USD, but 6-foot-5 Jordan Danks made a leaping catch at the wall for Texas and catcher Preston Clark gunned down a runner attempting to steal.

Longhorn pitcher James Russell cruised through innings 2-5, facing the minimum 12 Toreros. The Toreros threatened in the sixth, getting two baserunners before a beautiful 6-4-3 DP killed the inning.

Texas finally broke through with a run in the sixth. USD pitcher Matt Couch, who had struck out the side in the fifth, allowed a double to Brad Suttle with one out. Clark followed with a Texas Leaguer, and Suttle dangerously made an early break on the ball and scored ahead of the throw.

USD answered in the top of the 7th. Justin Snyder led off with a double, and Jordan Abruzzo followed with an absolute moonshot high into the home run porch in left field. Russell settled down and retired the next three hitters.

USD is sending out a relief pitcher to start the bottom of the 7th.

Keeping with today’s dictionary theme, I’d like to propose that fleeing the press box for seats in the sun (beer optional) shall be hereafter known as “pulling a Sorenson.”

I just pulled a Sorenson for a couple of innings. (Shiner Bock)
