One of those appearances was a complete-game shutout against cross-town rival USD, to help the Aztecs sweep the season series against the Toreros 2-0.

Thompson held the Toreros—who came into the game batting .300—to four hits, three of which were singles, and struck out four batters.

With the win last Sunday, the Aztecs clinched the No. 2 seed  in the MW Tournament, which begins in Reno, Nevada on May 20.

SDSU (34-18, 19-10) will play their final series of the season this week against St. Mary’s, a three-game set that begins on May 14 at Tony Gwynn Stadium.
