After not making the WCC tournament last season, the Toreros have secured the No. 1 seed in the tournament this year with the outright conference title.
The Toreros (30-10, 19-8) jumped on Pepperdine early, scoring four runs in the first innings thanks to a couple of hits, a suicide squeeze and a walk with the bases loaded.
Pepperdine tied the game up at four in the fourth inning, but the Toreros would tack on three runs in the seventh inning and would not look back as they secured the victory.
Senior catcher Jesse Jenner led the way for the Toreros, going 3-5 with two doubles and two RBIs.
Sophomore Anothony McIver (2-2) picked up the momentous win for USD, throwing 2 2/3 innings in relief, while allowing two runs.
They still have two regular season games left to be played, the first being against Long Beach State on May 12 in Long Beach.
