Baseball team cruise past Ventura 12-1

The Pierce College baseball team came back with a vengeance, beating Ventura College 12 -1 on  Saturday March 15 after losing earlier in the week against the Pirates.

Unlike their previous game Pierce was prepared for the Pirates as they finished the game with 19 hits, 12 runs and no errors. The Pirates struggled throughout the game and only scored one run on five hits and committed three errors.

“The whole team contributed offensively,” said Pierce head coach John Bushart. “The starting pitcher Harsa Aditya threw seven innings and only gave up one run.”

Aditya was awarded the win having pitched seven solid innings for the Brahmas, giving up five hits and one run. Michael Knopf would earn the save after pitching two innings and striking out three after coming in for Aditya.

“Alex Sawelson had a good day at the plate,” he said. “Quinn Conley had three hits along with Joe Christian, who had a good day as well.”

Sawelson went 2-5 with a double and four RBI’s, while Conley went 3-4 with three hits and one RBI. Christian finished the game with one hit, an RBI and a walk.

Heading into the middle of the season the Brahmas are now 10-8-1. Bushart believes his team is set up well to take on their next two opponents: Allan Hancock College and Santa Barbara City College.

“We played as close to a perfect game as you can,” Bushart said. “We did all three aspects well and had a great game.”

The Brahmas next game will be on March 18 at home against Hancock at 2:30 p.m.
