BASEBALL Doubleheader Host Vanguard University swept Biola in Golden State Athletic Conference play on Monday, behind the strong hitting of Thomas Mobley and a pair of quality performances from starting pitchers. Mobley went two for four with a run batted in in the 3-1 opening win and was two for three with an RBI to help the Lions post a 4-3 win in Game 2. Scott Torrey allowed just one earned run and seven hits in nine innings in Game 1 to improve to 4-1. In the second game, Richard Perry allowed one earned run and four hits in five innings, but wasn't around for the decision.

The so-called quality start has become downright quantifiable this season for the UC Irvine baseball team, which rode a completely serviceable pitching performance and some opportunistic hitting to its seventh straight victory Tuesday. The 6-4 win over visiting USC (8-3), which has suddenly lost three of its last four, was the 12th time in as many games this season that UCI (9-3) has allowed three or fewer earned runs in the first six innings (the statistical definition of an individual quality start)

UC Irvine senior pitcher Andrew Morales calls it players' amnesia. But while a short memory can serve a baseball team well, it might be advisable for Morales and the rest of the Anteaters to keep the memory of Saturday's 5-2 win over visiting Arizona State somewhere fresh in their collective memory all season long. "You really shouldn't give up on a season after five games, but we really did need something like this," said UCI Coach Mike Gillespie, whose squad had opened 2-3 and struggled mightily on offense before Saturday's second game of the three-game Long Beach State Tournament at Anteater Ballpark.
