BAKERSFIELD _ Sierra College magic continued on the baseball diamond at the 2012 California Community College Athletic Association State Championships by shutting out the country?s No. 1 ranked Orange Coast College 4-0 Friday. Seeded No. 2, the Wolverines put ace Josh Eagle up against the Pirates? top hurler, Keegan Yuhl. Yuhl came in 11-1. Eagle and his teammates chased Yuhl off the mound in the forth and the Sierra College sophomore allowed just six hits in blanking the Bucs. In the top of the first inning, Sierra?s Eduardo Mora-Loera singled in lead-off hitter Jared Snow. Snow also had a base hit against the Orange Coast ace. That seemed to shake the Pirates who committed two errors in the inning to allow Mora-Loera to score also. The final blow came on a two-run home run by Kaden Kamoe in the third inning. Eagle and the cardinal-and-white defense did the rest. Orange Coast did put runners on base but Eagle worked his way out of each situation to improve to 11-2 on the season. The Wolverines (26-15-1) were seeded 11th in the Super Regionals and came into the State Championships seeded No. 4. It was Sierra?s first shutout in 95 games. The Wolverines advanced to the semifinals and were scheduled to play Saturday at 2 p.m. Reporting by John Van Gaston, Cerritos College Sports Information Director Sierra College 4, Orange Coast 0 R H E Sierra Wolverines 202 000 000 - 4 7 0 Orange Coast Pirates 000 000 000 - 0 6 2 Wolverines AB R H BI Jared Snow cf 5 1 2 0 Travis Israel ss 3 1 1 0 Eddie Mora-Loera 2b 4 1 1 1 Brady Steiger 1b 5 0 1 0 Kaden Kamoe 3b 2 1 1 2 Brad Gerig rf 4 0 1 0 Casey Friederich lf 2 0 0 0 Jimmy Jack dh 3 0 0 0 Nick Hoffman ph 0 0 0 0 Clinton Brill c 4 0 0 0 Josh Eagle p 0 0 0 0 Totals 32 4 7 3 Pirates AB R H BI Powell, Boog cf 4 0 1 0 Licon, Joel ss 3 0 0 0 Carlson, Chris dh 3 0 0 0 Sabol, Stefan lf 4 0 0 0 Rademacher, Bijan rf 4 0 0 0 Garza, Bryan 1b 4 0 2 0 Woodward, Trent c 3 0 2 0 Broussard, Justin 2b 3 0 0 0 Witt, Robert ph 1 0 1 0 Navarro, Ricky pr 0 0 0 0 Wobrock, Austin 3b 4 0 0 0 Totals 33 0 6 0 Sierra Wolverines IP H R ER SO Josh Eagle 9.0 6 0 0 7 Orange Coast Pirates IP H R ER SO Yuhl, Keegan 4.0 6 4 3 2 Bynum, Andrew 2.2 1 0 0 4 Evans, Josh 0.2 0 0 0 1 Vandernaald, Jed 1.2 0 0 0 1
