Hey batter, batter

As baseball season hits its stride, the Brahmas look to improve on a 2017 season in which they narrowly missed the postseason.

One month into head coach Bill Picketts’ fifth season, the team sits at 4-10 following a rocky 0-4 start.

Infielder Brandon Lewis was set to go to CSUN following last season, but he returned to Pierce and currently leads the team in runs (13), home runs (3) and extra base hits (8).

With their top pitchers from last season moving on, sophomore Alexis Miranda has stepped up, throwing nearly 20 percent of the innings for the Brahmas, while freshman Barrett Vonderau has struck out 17 batters in 15.1 innings.
