Baseball: Blue and Gold go 5–2 during spring trip

The baseball team finished its spring break trip in California winning five games while losing just two.

The team started the trip with two straight wins against #21 Chapman University, by scores of 3–2 on Sunday and 5–0 on Monday. Freshman pitcher John Prendergast threw a complete game shutout in the second game.

Following the sweep of Chapman University, the Bombers lost 8–4 to Whittier College on Tuesday. The team rebounded nicely Wednesday and trounced Hampden-Sydney College 24–3. The Blue and Gold set a single-game record with ten doubles in the contest.

The South Hill squad won two games Friday, starting with a 9–5 victory against Pomona-Pitzer College. The win was the 1,000th of Head Coach George Valesente’s coaching career. The team followed that milestone victory by defeating Claremont-Mudd-Scripps College 4–3 in 10 innings.

A game versus California Lutheran University scheduled for yesterday was canceled because of inclement weather.

The Bombers closed out their spring trip today with a 6–5 loss to the University of Redlands. The team is now 7—3 on the season and opens its home season with a game at 3:30 p.m. Friday against Keuka College.
