SAN DIEGO—Perennial power San Diego continued its stranglehold over BYU baseball with a 7-1 victory Thursday night to start a three-game series.

No. 29 USD (14-9 overall, 6-1 in league), behind the nine strikeouts by David Hill (5-2), won a pitcher’s duel and padded its first-place lead in the West Coast Conference. The Cougars (11-14, 4-3) had runners in scoring position a couple times from their five hits during the game, but failed to capitalize like the Toreros.
