LOS ANGELES, Calif.- The baseball game scheduled for this afternoon at 3 p.m. between the 18th-ranked University of San Diego and Loyola Marymout University has been postponed due to inclement weather in the greater Los Angeles area. The two teams will now play a double-header on Saturday with the first game scheduled for an 11 a.m. start and the second game will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
Loyola Marymount enters the game with an overall record of 18-22 and a WCC mark of 5-4 after posting a three-game sweep over Saint Mary's this past week and a mid-week win over Long Beach State this past Tuesday. The offensive leader for the Lions is Eric Farris, who has a team-leading .367 batting average, team-best 61 hits, has eight doubles, three triples, two home runs and 22 RBI. The Lions look to Daniel Macias to anchor down their pitching rotation. Macias is 4-4 overall and has a 3.82 ERA.
The pitching match-ups for tomorrow in game one will be USD's sophomore left-hander Brian Matusz (7-2, 2.68 ERA) against LMU's Brian Wilson (3-4, 5.40 ERA). In game two, the Toreros will throw sophomore left-hander Josh Romanski (6-1, 2.62 ERA) against LMU's Brad Meyers (3-3, 3.36 ERA).
