The Pierce College baseball team scored a landslide victory against Glendale Community College on Thursday, with an amazing shutout score of 10-0.”The game went well,” said starting pitcher Cameron Collard. “We had good defense and good plays at the right time.”Collard shined that game with seven shutout innings and seven strikeouts. Catcher Steve McGrath, second baseman Eric Bloom and pitcher Casey Fry were also key players during the game. McGrath had three hits, one being a home run later in the game, and three RBIs.”It was good to sweep Glendale,” said McGrath. “We needed the win to be an even 2-2.”With their early seasonal stats now at 2-2 as opposed to 1-3, the team has a better chance at going to the playoffs in early May. “The game was a good win,” said Bloom, who had three RBIs. “We tried to set a good tone and carried it throughout the game and kept a good feel.”Fry struck out three opponents and had two scoreless innings, completely shutting out Glendale in all innings.”It was a big win for us. We needed it after the two losses,” said pitcher J.C. Urso. “Now we are trying to build off the win from the loss to [College of the Canyons].” The team had a rough time dealing with their double losses against COC, but the extreme victory against Glendale was all they needed to get back on their feet and try to continue the good-feeling streak. The following away game against Citrus College was played on Saturday, where they lost by only one point with an ending score of 14-13.
