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.

But after a 48-42 win at Saddleback on Tuesday that extended the Pirates' Orange Empire Conference winning streak to six games and lifted them into a first-place tie with the Gauchos, Thornton turned his inquiring mind to the source of the surging squad's good fortune.

Such was the case for the host Orange Coast College baseball team on Tuesday, as it produced a string of two-out hits in the early innings to defeat Palomar, 6-2, in the season opener for both teams.
