City College failed to win after playing Palomar College twice with final scores of 2-6 on April 8 and 9-10 on April 10.
The Knights are now 6-11 in the Pacific Coast Conference with 8 games left in their regular season.
The April 8 game started off with a couple of runs in the first 2 innings making the score 1-2 for the 3rd. Anthony long hit a double to the left field in the bottom of the 3rd inning, but was left at 2nd base.
In the top of the 4th inning Jason Laws the catcher for the comets scored a run after fellow teammate Tyler Saladino an infielder hit a grounder to City’s short stop.
In the top of the 5th inning a City College coach was thrown out of the game after the referee overreacted to a minor remark. City College ended the top of the inning quickly after throwing out Colby Ho at 1st base, striking out Guy Willeford and a caught a pop fly hit by Jarend Jones. Both teams failed to reach base in the 5th inning.
Brian Joyce was walked by City’s pitcher and later on in the inning. His self as well as Jason Laws scored two more runs increasing their score to 1-5 in the top of the 6th inning.
Ryan Dew was also walked then advanced to 2nd base when Jeff Taylor hit a grounder. Jon Bernetskie helped the knights add to the scoreboard after he crushed the ball deep into the right field, while Dew was able to increase the score to 2-5.
The Knights couldn’t seem to get a break through the slump. In the bottom of the 7th Oscar Roman and Alex Cann were struck out and Simon Ortiz was thrown out at 1st base.
Palomar ended the game with Kegan Sharp pitching the 9th inning. Marshal Harvey was left stranded on 1st base after he hit a single to right field.
The Knights would need a rally to pull this win off. Maybe a different day, a different time, and the Knights could have turned the game around, but it just wasn’t their week.
The Comets pitcher Sharp struck out two Knights and ended the game with Cann being thrown out at 1st base.
