SBCC Drops 7-6 Baseball Game at L.A. Pierce

L.A. Pierce scored two runs on no hits in the eighth inning on Friday to slip past SBCC 7-6 in a nonconference baseball game at Woodland Hills.

The Vaqueros (4-4) led 4-0 after 2½ innings and 5-3 through five. The Brahmas (2-5) scored two in the sixth and two more in the eighth. The Vaqueros had a walk, a wild pitch, a passed ball, a hit batter and a throwing error by catcher Zack Stockton that allowed the go-ahead run to score in the eighth.

The Vaqueros were cruising 10-1 in Thursday’s opener of a three-game series with Pierce, then they gave up seven runs in the eighth before holding on for a 10-8 win.

“It was kind of like yesterday,” said coach Jeff Walker. “We had some good innings but we couldn’t put them away. We had several chances to execute and didn’t get it done.”

Jake Holton went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in the second. Phil Quartararo was 2-5 with a double and a solo home run in the fifth.

Jayden Metz will take the mound for SBCC in Saturday’s 1 p.m. rubber game with the Brahmas at Pershing Park.

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!
