IRVINE — The UC Irvine baseball team stuck with senior starting pitcher Crosby Slaught and the offense eventually rewarded him in a 15-6 nonconference victory over visiting Cal State Bakersfield on Sunday. Slaught, who gave up three runs in the first inning, posted zeros over the next five innings to earn the win and improve to 7-6 this season. Slaught, a fifth-year senior, is 23-9 in his career. He is tied for No. 8 in career wins at UCI. The Anteaters (30-22) tied a season high with 20 hits as seven players had at least two hits against the Roadrunners (21-29)

COSTA MESA — The swap meet on campus was shutting down. Orange Coast College wasn’t about to give its baseball game away. College of the Desert loaded the bases in the top of the ninth, getting two runs across. With two out and two runners in scoring position, OCC starter Chris Licon felt confident up four runs. “It was under control,” he said, even though he was on the bench. The Pirates on Saturday looked cooler than the day before late in the game.

Bryce Alderton Hot stuffy air wasn't the only element making the Estancia High boys basketball team sweat Thursday night. An unrelenting Saddleback defense forced four turnovers in the overtime period and the Roadrunners came away with a 63-57 victory in Golden West League play. Saddleback's Demetrius May scored nine of his game-high 22 points in the overtime, as the Roadrunners (8-13, 2-6 in league) outscored Estancia, 12-6, in the period after Eagles' leading-scorer Matt Cachola (15 points)

COSTA MESA - A 52-50 nonconference loss to visiting College of the Desert sent Orange Coast College football historians to the record book Saturday. But with just four regular-season games left, all against Southern Conference opponents, the Pirates' players and coaches will be better served heading back to the drawing board in an attempt to salvage their season. Upon immediate reflection, OCC might spend some time trying to figure out how it lost a game in which it scored 50 points, committed no turnovers, had fewer than half as many penalties as the opponent and averaged 3.4 plays on its seven touchdown drives.

The Costa Mesa High grad wanted to commit to a four-year school before her sophomore season at Orange Coast College. The problem was, after a pedestrian freshman year, not that many schools were interested. In the end, she signed with Cal State Bakersfield, an NCAA Division II school.

COSTA MESA - Austin Saenz ripped a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Orange Coast College baseball team a dramatic 6-3 win over College of the Desert on Friday at Wendell Pickens Field. The Pirates (8-2), who trailed for most of the game before scoring two runs in the eighth and three in the ninth, have won seven of their last eight games. The loss drops the Roadrunners to 2-7. Saenz's blast, his first of the season, helped give the win to starter Kyle Dowty, who pitched a complete-game gem for his first win of the year.

Bryce Alderton The Costa Mesa High football team can look at itself as a team that moved the ball on offense and limited host Saddleback on defense in the Golden West League contest Friday night at the Santa Ana Bowl. But the Mustangs can also glance in the mirror and see a team that was its own worst enemy. The Mustangs committed 18 penalties for 130 yards, as well as four turnovers, helping aid the Roadrunners' 27-14 victory in front of 400 spectators.

COSTA MESA - Coach Robert Castellano has told his players that they're all important and he needs each one of them to do their part. He's not kidding. Everyone on the team gets to play. With only 15 players, the Estancia High boys' soccer team is thin. The program began the season with 20 players, but three players have been lost to injuries and two players because they had to get jobs. At halftime of the Eagles' match on Friday, they lost another player. Castellano said Chris Gomez, the team's leading goal scorer last season, had to leave because of work.

COSTA MESA — On the back of the jerseys of Costa Mesa High's opponent were huge numbers. Through five innings Tuesday, the Mustangs had the big number that mattered most, eleven runs. The Mustangs were on their way at home to shutting out Saddleback. Coach Jim Kiefer pulled starter Tyler Sheffner after four strong innings and his replacement, Logan Benter, after one inning in relief. Saddleback managed just two hits before the top of the sixth. Costa Mesa helped the Roadrunners reach base in the final two innings because of hit batters, walks and errors.

COSTA MESA — Costa Mesa High allowed Godinez to win its first Orange Coast League football game in school history last week. But the Mustangs wouldn't give Saddleback its first league victory in four years. The Roadrunners tried to ruin Costa Mesa's homecoming and end a 17-game losing streak in league play. The Mustangs fell behind twice Friday night before coming back to win, 28-15, at Jim Scott Stadium, earning victory No. 1 in league this season. "[The win is] nice, but we're not happy," Costa Mesa Coach Jeremy Osso said.
