SBCC Loses at Moorpark, Remains in First Place

Andrew Schatz had a two-run double and a solo homer on Saturday but SBCC came out on the short end of a 7-5 baseball decision at Moorpark.

The Vaqueros (21-15, 11-6) remained in first in the WSC North, 1½ games ahead of Moorpark (18-20, 10-8) and Cuesta (17-21, 10-8) and 2½ ahead of Ventura (19-19, 9-9). SBCC has three games left while the three pursuers have two remaining.

Schatz, a sophomore catcher from Lafayette, Calif., went 2-4 with three RBIs. He gave the Vaqueros a 2-0 lead with a two-run double in the second. The Raiders tied it at 2 on a leadoff homer by Daniel Cipriano in the fourth. They added four more runs in the inning to lead 6-2.

Tyler Rosen had an RBI double in the fifth and Reinhard Lautz drove in Joseph Hamilton in the seventh to make it 6-4. Schatz hit his third homer in the eighth, cutting the deficit to 7-5.

The Vaqueros, ranked No. 10 in Southern Cal, have made the Southern Cal Regional for six straight years and are seeking their fourth conference crown in the last seven years.

They’ll play their last three regular-season games in four days next week. They’ll host Oxnard in a rain makeup on Monday, then entertain Ventura on Tuesday with both starting at 2:30 p.m.

They finish up on Thursday at Ventura, also at 2:30 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!
