Cuesta Sinks SBCC Baseball 9-4 with 7-Run Eighth

Cuesta erupted for seven runs in the bottom of the eighth on Thursday and went on to defeat SBCC 9-4 in a WSC North baseball game in San Luis Obispo.

Tommy Holguin went 2-4 for the Vaqueros (9-7, 2-3) and drove in Logan Pollack with a two-out single in the sixth that put Santa Barbara on top, 3-2.

Cuesta (11-7, 2-2) scored seven times in the eighth to take a 9-3 lead. The Cougars benefitted from four hits, two errors, three walks and a hit batter. Three of the runs were unearned.

Jacob Bravo went 2-5 with an RBI single in the ninth. He’s hitting .500 in the last six games (12-24) and has raised his batting average to .357.

Jack Aldrich started for the Vaqueros and went six innings, allowing two runs on five hits with three strikeouts, two walks and two hit batters. Tyler Chivens held the Vaqueros to two runs (one earned) on one hit in five innings but had control problems. He walked seven and hit a batter before Braeden Gowdy came on to strike out six in the last four innings.

The Vaqueros will host Cuesta on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
