After reaching the playoffs the previous season, the Renegades fell short in a repeat bid finishing fifth at 9-12 in the division and with an overall record of 14-22.

Despite finishing the season winning six of the last ten games, an eight game losing streak in the middle of conference play was BC’s undoing.

Before the losing streak began BC sat at 4-2 in conference play and within two games of first place LA Mission.

The Renegades would emerge from the streak with a 4-10 record and their playoff hopes dashed.

The Renegades won their second straight game beating West LA 4-1.

Jared Solf went the distance pitching a complete game for the win allowing only three hits and one unearned run while striking out six.

Solf was helped by the BC defense as they turned three double plays to keep West LA scoreless until the ninth inning.

BC took the lead for good in the fifth scoring two runs on RBI singles by Rolando Martinez and Erik Williams.

In the seventh, with two outs, Kaidan Meadows would come through driving in the final two runs for BC and giving the Renegades a 4-0 lead.

Martinez finished with a hit and an RBI, Williams finished with two hits and an RBI with Meadows chipping in with a hit and two RBI.

BC lost to College of the Canyons 6-1, dropping the last home game of the season.

After two scoreless innings, BC struck first taking a one run lead on a bases-loaded walk to Kaidan Meadows in third.

College of the Canyons scored two runs in the fifth, taking the lead before the BC defense began to unravel in the eighth.

Three straight BC errors allowed Canyons to load the bases and score four runs to put the game out of reach for the Renegades.

The defense was a sore spot all game for BC as the Renegades committed five errors.

Rolando Martinez was one of the lone bright spots for BC, finishing the game with four hits and a walk.

Meadows had the only RBI for BC while Cole Hallum pitched eight innings striking out six batters while allowing only three earned runs.

The Renegades closed out their season with a loss, falling to College of the Canyons 9-5.

BC started the scoring early with two runs in the first on an RBI double by Kaidan Meadows and a passed ball that allowed Rolando Martinez to scamper home.

In the second, Martinez would double to plate another run and Cole Hallum was hit with bases loaded to give BC enough runs for a 4-1 lead.

But after that it was all College of the Canyons as they would score four in the fourth to take the lead by one before adding a run in the sixth and three in the seventh to give them a 9-4 lead.

BC scored its last run in the ninth on an RBI double by Erik Williams.

Martinez and Williams each finished with a game high three hits and an RBI each.
