After breaking out of a nine-game losing streak last weekend, the College of the Redwoods baseball team will be hoping to carry some momentum into this weekend’s final home series of the season.
It’s been a disappointing spring in terms of wins and losses for the Corsairs, who are 2-19 in the Golden Valley Conference and 4-28 overall, but the bats came out swinging against Siskiyous on Sunday.
The Corsairs won 16-6 on the strength of 19 hits and blew a tight game open with seven runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings.
The Visitors, who had won the opening two games of the weekend series by identical 6-1 scores, scored six in the top of the seventh to make for a more flattering final score.
Kyle Wallace-Cabanas led the way at the plate for CR, finishing 4-for-4 with a walk and three RBIs, while James Garcia continued his outstanding season with three hits, including a triple, and a pair of RBIs.
Brock Bradfield also had three hits and two RBIs, while Gannon Cyphers, Ryan Ramos and JB Lewis each had two hits, including a double by Cyphers.
Colton Stokesberry also doubled, as well as pitching the final inning in relief of winning pitcher Garrett Poblick, who allowed just three hits in six innings.
The Corsairs are scheduled to play single games at home to Shasta on Friday and Saturday before closing out the season next Wednesday at Lassen.
Friday’s opener against Shasta is set for 2 p.m., with Saturday’s game set for 1 p.m.
Both games will be played at Bomber Field across form the Redwood Acres.
