Bob Parry had three hits and drove in four runs Friday to lead San Diego State past United States International University, 7-6, in a nonconference college baseball game at USIU.
Parry hit a two-run home run in the second inning and added a two-run single in the fourth to help the Aztecs (25-18-1) take a 6-1 lead. USIU (20-26) got a solo home run from Greg May in the fourth inning and scored three times in the eighth to cut the deficit to 7-6.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, USIU loaded the bases with one out against Aztec reliever Matt Haar. Haar ran the count to 3 and 0 on Ted Rivenbark before inducing the Gulls’ second baseman to hit into a game-ending double play.
Rich Holsman (2-2) pitched the first seven innings for the win. San Diego State will host USIU in a doubleheader at 5 p.m. today at Smith Field.
University of Santa Clara 8, University of San Diego 7 (13 innings)--Steve Koontz singled in the bottom of the 13th off USD pitcher Tom Sizer to drive in Mike Medeiros and give Santa Clara the win in West Coast Athletic Conference play.

The loss dropped USD to 3-13, 20-20. Santa Clara is 7-6, 20-22.
