It was a disappointing day in both softball and baseball for College of the Redwoods, with the women dropping both ends of a doubleheader against Shasta, and the men losing a close game with Siskiyous in extra innings.
James Garcia continued to impress both on the mound and at the plate, tossing six big innings for the baseball team, which fell 6-1 in 10 innings.
Garcia, who has been a bright spot in a disappointing spring for the team, struck out 10 and allowed just one earned urn in six innings work.
At the plate the sophomore was 2-for-5.
The score was still tied after nine innings, with the visitors scoring five times in the top of the 10th on the way to pulling out the win.
The loss was the eighth straight for CR, which dropped to 3-27 on the season and 2-18 in the Golden Valley Conference.
“Base running mistakes cost us being able to put more runs across,” CR head coach Brad Morgan said.
Andrew Enwiya finished 1-for-5 with a double in the loss, while Kyle Cabanas was 1-for-5 with an RBI.
The CR women, meanwhile, lost 8-0 and 5-1, dropping to 4-6 in the Golden Valley Conference and 8-16 overall.
Amy Reyes and Adriana Chavez led the way at the plate for the Corsairs with three hits each over the two games.
Chavez had two of the team’s three hits in the opener, while Reyes was 2-for-4 with a double in the second game.
Juliana Ortega-Miranda, who is enjoying a good freshmen season with the team, was 2-for-4 with an RBI in the nightcap, while Pheobe Marsh, Lindsey Scott and Lily Peterson each added a hit.
Both CR teams will be back in action on Saturday, with the women hosting Siskiyous in a doubleheader beginning at noon, and the men also playing Siskiyous in a doubleheader at Bomber Field, also at noon.
