The Trojans faced Lassen College in a baseball game, last Friday at the Skyline College baseball field. The game went nine innings in a 5-4 loss. Skyline had four runs on six hits, along with two errors.There wasn’t much of a crowd early on, but the Lassen dugout was making a bunch of noise. The Trojan fans came in later, but still couldn’t be heard because of Lassen’s dugout.

“I started giving them pitches to hit,” said starting pitcher Marcus Pointer. Pointer had a no-hitter going for four innings, until Lassen stepped it up.

Right fielder Jimmy Parque and Coach Dino Nomicos both said that that the team played flat and came unprepared. They only gave up two errors but the eleven hits and five runs are what hurt them. This could be because they have four returning starters.

The game was split in half as the Trojans played well and led. The second half they played flat and sloppy, blew the lead, and couldn’t find the ninth inning comeback.

Although this game didn’t end in favor of Skyline, Coach Nomicos predicts that Skyline will be number one by the end of the season because this is the most talented team that he has ever had.
