Apparently, one way to slow down the state's most productive hitting team is to, well, throw slower pitches. Fullerton College sophomore left-hander Nick Morton used that approach to help the visiting Hornets edge Orange Coast, 3-1, in an Orange Empire Conference baseball battle on Tuesday. OCC, ranked No. 1 in Southern California, entered the game leading the state in hits (219), doubles (40) home runs (nine), batting average (.317) and slugging percentage (.443). But Morton, with his repertoire of slow, slower and slowest, kept the Pirates off balance to earn his fourth win in five decisions and his third complete game.

The Orange Coast College baseball team had already amassed a 12-2 record and earned the No. 1 ranking in Southern California. But Pirates Coach John Altobelli said his players may have struggled with the diminished margin for effort that accompanies Orange Empire Conference competition. Host OCC, which came in batting .336 as a team, managed just five hits in 13 innings to come out on the short end of a 2-1 decision against No. 7-ranked Cypress, the defending state champion, in the conference opener for both teams Thursday.

The objective for most baseball offenses is to knock out the starting pitcher and eventually feast on relievers. But if the first 10 games are any indication, Orange Coast College opponents this season should be careful what they wish for. The Pirates used five combined innings of hitless, scoreless relief from winner Brian Bass and Parker Manahan to secure a 9-2 nonconference triumph over visiting Long Beach City College on Tuesday, continuing a...

Some 23 games in, the Orange Coast College women's basketball team is pretty much on Coach Mike Thornton's last nerve. But after coming from behind to secure a 57-49 Orange Empire Conference triumph over visiting Irvine Valley on Wednesday, the Pirates are also perhaps just two crucial road victories from at least a share of the conference championship. OCC, which missed 14 of its first 15 field-goal attempts had just three points for the first 9 minutes, 15 seconds of the game, and trailed, 22-10, with 5:37 left in the first half, improved to 14-9, 5-2 in conference.
