Barry Faulkner Daniel Hunter no longer wonders what kind of athlete he wants to be when he grows up. Perhaps more important, neither do his Costa Mesa High baseball teammates, nor Mustangs Coach Kirk Bauermeister. For though there are no apparent physical changes in the 5-foot-8, 173-pounder who hit .296 as a junior left fielder, most would agree the senior catcher bears little resemblance. "As a player, as a leader and as a young man, he has really matured this year," Bauermeister said.

COSTA MESA - Josh Little launched his first homer of the season, Galen Fajardo drove in three runs and Carlos Franco closed out his fifth save to pace the Costa Mesa High baseball team to a 7-4 nonleague win over visiting Saddleback Tuesday. Jeremiah Haubrick also pitched two scoreless innings to post his fourth win in five decisions as Coach Kirk Bauermeister's Mustangs improved to 9-12-1. Little, who had four homers en route to All-Newport-Mesa District honors last spring, led off the fourth with a bomb over the left-field fence to give the Mustangs a 4-3 lead.

LAGUNA BEACH - Costa Mesa High's baseball team finds itself requiring a sweep of Corona del Mar on Monday and Wednesday should the Mustangs entertain CIF Playoff hopes following an 11-4 Pacific Coast League loss at Laguna Beach Friday. The Mustangs (9-14-1, 3-7 in the PCL) fought their way back from a 4-0 deficit with three runs in the fourth inning, only to see a rare call turn the game inside out. With three runs in, led by a run-scoring double by Daniel Hunter, and with a 2-1 count on the batter and two outs, the batter backed out of the batter's box on a called strike, and then was called out by the umpire for stepping out of the box. "It's a high school rule rarely called," noted Mesa Coach Kirk Bauermeister.

SANTA ANA - Costa Mesa High's baseball team gave up four unearned runs in the second inning, resulting in a 5-3 Costa Mesa/Foothill Tournament consolation bracket loss to host Foothill Saturday. A botched cutoff throw by Mesa allowed the Knights (4-6) to score twice. The play would have been the third out of the inning. Instead, Foothill got a two-run homer from Phil Alderson to take the lead for good. Nick Cabico started for the Mustangs (4-4-1) and pitched five innings, striking out six giving up five runs, only one of which was earned.

COSTA MESA - Costa Mesa High junior Brent Stevens was practically guaranteed a complete game by his coach, Kirk Bauermeister, before Saturday's Pride of the Coast Tournament first-round game with visiting Bolsa Grande. "I gave him the ball and told him, 'Next time I talk to you, I'll be shaking your hand after the game,' " Bauermeister said following the Mustangs 9-2 win over the Matadors. "I just didn't have anyone else to put in and we needed a big game from Brent."

GARDEN GROVE - Steven Shores' two-run double to right-center ignited a four-run sixth inning and Costa Mesa High's baseball team pulled out a 6-3 victory over host Rancho Alamitos in a nonleague game Friday. The Mustangs, who were handcuffed, 3-2, entering the sixth, put two runners aboard for Shores as Lyle Yourex walked and Josh Little got aboard on an infield single on a hit and run play. A passed ball moved both runners into scoring position and then Shores came through with his two-bagger.

Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - Strictly in terms of points, Friday's nonleague football game between Costa Mesa High and Westminster -- 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College -- is a battle of the haves and have nots. Costa Mesa (2-0 and ranked No. 2 in CIF Southern Section Division IX) leads Orange County in scoring, averaging 50 points per game. Westminster (0-1-1) has yet to score a point in the new millennium. Still, Mesa Coach Jerry Howell said the Lions, coached by fourth-year head man Ted McMillen, could provide the best challenge the Mustangs have faced this fall.

Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - Costa Mesa High football coach Jerry Howell, whose four straight CIF playoff teams have, on average, nearly doubled the score on opponents during that run, won't have to worry so much about keeping the score down this season. He figures his newly configured offense will do it for him. But, before Mesa fans start wondering if the old coach has gotten a little too much two-a-days sun, Howell explains that less, in this case, could be more, in terms of bettering the Mustangs' 1-4 postseason record since 1996.

Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - It was something less than the dream, but his walk-off three-run home run Tuesday, with two outs and the score tied in the bottom of the seventh, was more than Daniel Hunter could ever ask. "It's a dream come true," the Costa Mesa High senior said of the decisive blow in the Mustangs' 6-3 baseball win over CIF Southern Section Division IV second-round visitor Mayfair (15-10). "Every little kid growing up dreams about hitting a home run in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and two outs," Hunter said.

Barry Faulkner COVINA - If the Costa Mesa High baseball team's execution is anything like its scouting acumen, the Mustangs have a solid shot to advance past today's CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round playoff game at Gladstone High. Mesa Coach Kirk Bauermeister, whose Mustangs (15-9-1) completed their season May 9, elected to use a day off May 11 to go see a Division IV team play. "The only ranked team in our division playing that day was Gladstone (at Workman High)

Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - The Costa Mesa High baseball team is developing a Gonzaga complex. Just like the NCAA basketball tournament bracket busters from Spokane, Wash., the Mustangs believe there are still plenty of folks who aren't ready to take them seriously, despite their string of March victories. So, after an 8-0 Pacific Coast League-opening triumph at Estancia Friday improved Costa Mesa to what is believed to be an unprecedented 6-0, some senior standouts stated their case for respectability.

COSTA MESA - Costa Mesa High senior Josh Feldman, who sustained a season-ending knee injury days before the 2000 opener, started making up for lost time Friday. The center fielder and leadoff man belted a pair of home runs and collected five RBIs to pace the host Mustangs' 11-0 conquest of Saddleback in the first round of the Foothill-Costa Mesa Tournament. The win advances Mesa into Tuesday's championship quarterfinal, when they will host the winner of Friday's Santiago-Rancho Alamitos game.
