SBCC Baseball Can’t Take Advantage of Good Start

SBCC took a 3-0 lead in the first inning on Wednesday at Jackie Robinson Field, then the bats went silent and the Vaqueros suffered a 6-3 baseball loss to Pasadena City.

Jake Holton went 2-2 and was hit by a pair of pitches to reach base four times. John Jensen and Joshua Perlmutter singled with two outs in the first and Holton followed with a run-scoring single to center field.

Phil Quartararo delivered a two-run double to left and the Vaqueros (9-7) were up 3-0 before the Lancers (9-6) came to bat. Santa Barbara managed only two hits in the last eight innings.

PCC got single runs in the first and third, then grabbed a 5-3 lead with a three-run seventh. Ryan Lewis tied it on an RBI single and Nico Martinez followed with a two-run single to left.

Pasadena right-hander Nathan Garkow went seven innings, giving up three runs on five hits. He struck out 10 and walked one. SBCC starter Brett Vansant pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and a walk.

The Vaqueros will host L.A. Mission 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!
