SBCC Holds Off Fullerton for Coach Jeff Walker’s 150th Win

SBCC built leads of 5-1, 8-3 and 11-3 on Tuesday on the way to an 11-8 baseball win at Fullerton.

The Vaqueros (8-5) won their third straight. They scored a season-high 25 on Saturday and have tallied 11 or more in four of the last five games.

Phil Quartararo went 3-5 with two RBIs and Nicholas Prainito was 3-5. John Jensen had a two-run single in a five-run second inning and Jake Holton drilled his second homer – a two-out, two-run shot in the eighth that stretched the lead to 11-3.

Brett Vansant, a 6-foot-9 right-hander, was sharp for SBCC, allowing three runs (none earned) on six hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked one.

Tate Brock was 3-4 with two RBIs for the Hornets (6-7).

Fullerton scored four in the eighth and one in the ninth to get within three.

“We scored 11 runs and got a nice road win against a good Orange Empire team,” said coach Jeff Walker after notching win No. 150. He’s 150-103 in seven seasons.

The Vaqueros will play a home-and-home with El Camino (7-5) on Thursday in Torrance and Saturday at Pershing Park 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!
