SAN LUIS OBISPO - Orange Coast College's baseball team dug a hole for itself in the first round of the Southern California Regionals Friday, dropping a 6-1 decision to host Cuesta. The Pirates piled up nine hits with Glenn Hedgpeth (3 for 4) and Scott Beerer (2 for 4 with a double) leading the way, but more often than not the base hits came with two out and there was no one to pick them up. Coast's only marker came in the sixth inning with Beerer doubled and eventually scored on a fielder's choice by Brian Murphy.

COSTA MESA - It had been nearly two years since he'd won a game, and after redshirting at the University of Oregon last season, Friday marked the collegiate debut for Orange Coast College freshman pitcher Brandon Brennan. As if that weren't enough to accelerate his anxiety, there were about four-dozen professional scouts on hand to gauge his talent, his coach estimated. But if Brennan was at all knocked off his game in the Pirates' 6-3 nonconference home win over Cuesta, it certainly was difficult to tell.
