SBCC Suffers First Conference Loss in Bout With Cuesta

Cayce Rocco pitched seven strong innings on Tuesday, leading Cuesta to a 4-1 baseball win over SBCC in San Luis Obisbo.

The 20th-ranked Vaqueros (12-8, 3-1) suffered their first WSC North loss and had their eight-game win streak snapped. Rocco (4-1) allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts and two walks.

SBCC and Cuesta (7-13, 3-1) are tied for first in the WSC North, one game ahead of Ventura and Moorpark.

Andrew Schatz homered for the second straight game for the Vaqueros. He led off the third with a home run to left, tying the game 1-1.

Reinhard Lautz went 2-4 for Santa Barbara, extending his hitting streak to seven games.

Elliott Reece went the first six innings for SBCC, giving up two runs on three hits with three strikeouts. Andrew Navigato’s leadoff homer in the sixth put the Cougars up 2-1. Cole Tucker struck out four in the last two innings to earn his first save.

The Vaqueros travel to Oxnard on Thursday at 2:30 p.m., then host the Condors 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!
