Falcons open series with a win

 The Cerritos College baseball team defeated Pasadena City College 5-2, on Tuesday for the first game of the series that will conclude their meetings for the year.

The Falcons began the South Coast Conference with a win at home and started this month March 1 with a walk-off win on.

They had 11 hits for the game and only one error on the defensive side that led to one of the two runs that Pasadena had.

Cerritos College was 4-6 on the season prior to the game and is now 5-6.

Cerritos was also looking to extend a two -game winning streak that started at the end of last month.

Sophomore Tim Soonthorngnarun was the most successful player for the Falcons as he reached base three times, scoring twice.

“It is a big win for us because it is just going to build us up and make us get better,” Soonthorngnarun said after the game.

“We need to just hit and stay confident,” he said when asked what the team has to do to win the next meeting against Pasadena.

Cerritos College had less field time to start the year because of construction; the Falcons’ coach Ken Gaylord felt the team was a little behind.

“It is going to be a challenge, but we are getting better. We really did not have a facility until early January,” he said.

Gaylord went on to say that although he was unhappy with the construction, he did like the way it turned out.

Shortstop Chris Hefner was happy with the win and the progression of the team thus far.

“[Pasadena City College] is a good team and we did a good job.We  need to come out and practice hard so we can carry the momentum for Thursday,” he said.

Hefner also went on to say that the team’s ace will be on the mound Thursday at Pasadena and that might help greatly.

Not winning any away games Gaylord and the Falcons baseball team says that it hopes to change that during the SCC games.

The Falcons’ final two games against Pasadena are Thursday at Pasadena and back at home on Saturday.
