Brahma baseball loses to Cuesta

Pierce College competed against Cuesta College ended with Brahmas losing 9-1 against the Cougars at home, on Friday, March 18.

According to Brahma’s Head Coach, Bill Picketts, having too many losses would make it hard for the team to get back on their feet.

“[Cuesta College’s] strength is their pitching, and it showed today,” Picketts said. “They’ve got three quality pitchers and we just happened to see one of them today, and we’re going to see them again next time. They definitely pitch and it makes it hard for us to score, which makes it tough to face score for a few months, if you get down early it’s tough to come back.”

Despite the loss, Picketts is still hopeful for the team’s future.

“We just didn’t get it done,” Picketts said. “[Cuesta College’s] pitcher is really good. We knew coming in that he was going to throw strikes, he was going to be tough to handle and he did exactly what we thought he was going to do.”

“So we didn’t execute early, we missed getting the bunt down and that kind of affected us in a negative way,” he said. “We’ll come back strong next time we play.”

Evan Yeager, Brahma’s catcher, was impressed with Cuesta College’s pitching performance.

“They got a good team, they got good pitching,” Yeager said. “That’s always been the word about them throughout the beginning of the season. They can swing a little bit obviously and they hit pretty nice home runs. Wish we can come out and execute everything we do and make it a little bit tougher for them.”

Tom Wilson, Brahma’s pitcher, blamed his lack of performance for the team’s loss.

“Personally I wasn’t executing pitches as I would’ve liked to. Just from the first pitch I wasn’t feeling my stuff today, which I can’t have every game, but unfortunately today couldn’t find myself and couldn’t throttle back,” said Wilson.

Cougar’s Head Coach, Bob Miller, was very pleased with his team’s performance.
