The Skyline College Baseball team has showcased many talents in different aspects of the game this season.For starters, they have five hitters in the starting line-up with batting averages of .420 or better. They also have one of the better pitching corps in the league which features a group that has only a 3.50 era as a unit.On March 30, the team got first place in the standings with an 8-3 win over CCSF. The game started off slow with Skyline leading 1-0 in the third inning when outfielder Will Vogl came to the plate with one man on base and smacked a two-run homer. This was Vogl’s team leading 7th homer of the season. This put the Trojans ahead 3-0 and they never looked back. Starting pitcher Chris Galarza went 8 and one third innings and gave up 8 hits before being relieved by closer Nick Bogdanoff who got the save. “I don’t like giving up as many hits as I did but luckily they didn’t turn into runs,” said Galarza. The team also received good hitting from outfielder Brian Ramsey who went 3-5 and came through with an RBI double. The victory marked the fourth straight for the Trojans and put them a half game ahead of CSM for first place in the conference standings. Head Coach Dino Nomicos was pleased with the victory. “This was a big win for us because not only do we keep a winning streak going but we moved ahead of CSM and that is important because it makes our upcoming showdown with them that much more meaningful”, said Nomicos. The team will take on CSM on April 3 but will have to focus on San Jose City College first as they meet April 1.
