Mounties Fall to Riverside City College, 8-3

By John M. Sherrard

(Riverside, CA) With four runs in the first inning by host Riverside City College, the Mt. SAC Baseball team couldn't catch the Tigers and eventually lost, 8-3, in a non-conference game Tuesday afternoon.

The Mounties (5-7), however, made a comeback with three runs in the fourth inning to trail, 4-3, but RCC scored two runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings for the final, 8-3 score.

Leading the way offensively for the Mounties was freshman center fielder Quinn Cotter (2 for 4) and freshman first baseman Jacob Castillo (2-4, run, 2 RBIs) with two hits each.

With Mt. SAC trailing, 4-0, in the fourth inning, Castillo hit a two-run double to cut the lead in half, 4-2, scoring sophomore designated hitter Antonio Muniz (1-4) and freshman right fielder Brandon Bradshaw (1-5). Muniz and Bradshaw each reached on a single.

After Castillo advanced to third, freshman catcher Daniel Ramirez hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Castillo, to trail, 4-3.

Mt. SAC sophomore left hander Michael Starns pitched a nearly flawless final two innings, allowing just one hit and struck out three batters.

The Mounties continue non-conference action with a home game against Santa Ana College on Thursday at 6:00 pm.
