Bakersfield College defeated LA Mission 12-6 in their third victory against The Eagles in the same week. The game was decided late in the bottom of the eighth inning when BCs offense batted in seven runs to secure their sixth win in the last seven games. The victory also moved the Renegades into first place in the southern division of the Western State Conference. They currently lead by half a game over LA Mission and LA Pierce.

The Eagles were the first to get on the board by scoring two runs in the top of the second inning with RBIs from Sam Gray and Matt Elser. BC answered with two runs of their own in the bottom of the fourth with hits from Zach Williams and Kyle Willman.

The Renegades pulled away from the Eagles in the fifth inning thanks to Ryan Darbee’s double down right field line and another RBI from Zach Williams. Williams, who proved to be a threat to LA Mission in earlier games, totaled five RBIs and went four for five with two runs scored. However, LA Mission responded yet again, scoring three runs in the top of the eighth inning to bring the score to 6-5.

The game broke apart in the bottom of the inning when BCs offense took full control. Seven different players registered a hit for BC, bringing in seven runs total. This included a three-run double from Zach Williams and a two-run single from Tim Billingsley.

The Eagles failed to score in the ninth against BC pitcher Joey Salinas who was credited with the win.

BC (12-14, 7-4 WSC) will play their next game at Rio Hondo on March 24 at 1 p.m.
