It has been said that hitting is about timing and pitching is about upsetting timing. Saddleback College pitcher Eric Pierce knows a little about both. Timing led him from Orange Coast, where he redshirted last season, to Saddleback, where an injury early in the season opened a spot for him in the starting rotation. Ever since, the freshman has been using a lethargic left-handed changeup to confound opposing hitters, who regularly lunge and flail at his off-speed offerings like a blind-folded party guest feeling for the pinata.

The fashion in which the Sage Hill School baseball team walked off the field Friday wasn't pretty. Nevertheless, the host school will take the result, a 10-9 walk-off win against Saddleback Valley Christian. "I couldn't believe it," Sage Hill Coach Dominic Campeau said of watching his team rally for four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, two errors leading to the first and last runs. "If you're going to play ugly, and you get the win, it's always a positive. It's not the effort.

MISSION VIEJO - Orange Coast College women's basketball coach Mike Thornton has spent most of the season trying to figure out his team. 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. As with most winning streaks, there are a number of factors, some of which the visitors (16-9, 7-2 in conference)

SANTA ANA - Coach Mike Bargas went into Saturday's football game with two motives. The first was for Estancia High to beat Saddleback and the second was for everyone to play. The Eagles easily met both objectives, coming away with a 26-8 road win to keep their CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoff hopes alive. Estancia is in a two-way tie for third place in the Orange Coast League with Laguna Beach. With one league game left, Estancia can jump to second place and move closer to securing one of the league's two guaranteed postseason berths.

Estancia (3-5, 1-2) vs. Saddleback (0-8, 0-3) When/where: Saturday, 1 p.m. at Segerstrom High Key Eagles: Jr. RB-KR Indiana Taylor (298 yards and four TDs on 40 carries, one kickoff for TD); Jr. DB-FB Ronnie Urquiza; Fr. CB Dylan Laurent Key Roadrunners: Sr. RB-OLB Antonio Soto (661 yards and eight TDs on 126 carries); Sr. QB-CB Isiah Franks (468 yards and eight TDs on 72 carries, 131 yards, one TD and one INT on 10 of 15 passing); Jr. LB Chris Rios Breakdown: Estancia has an outside shot to earn one of the Orange Coast League's three automatic berths into the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs … Eagles need to win their final two league games and they need help from other teams to qualify for the postseason for the fifth consecutive season … If Estancia wins out and it doesn't finish in third place in league, it can possibly receive the Southern Division's lone at-large playoff entry, but the at-large entry will most likely go to the fourth-place team from the stronger Orange League or Pacific Coast League … Saddleback is winless this year and it has lost six straight league games dating back to last season … Estancia might turn to Taylor again in the backfield after he rushed for 214 yards and four TDs in his first start … Taylor filled in for injured tailback Christian Laurent last week in the Eagles' 55-41 win against Godinez … Roadrunners could be on their way to their second winless season in three years.

SANTA ANA - Almost every time the PA announcer called the name of a Costa Mesa High player, he began with the last name, followed by the first. Someone might want to update the Mustangs' football roster. First names first, last names second. What truly matters to the Mustangs is hearing where they're at in the Orange Coast League standings: first place. They are looking like the class of the league. Remember their names. Costa Mesa went on the road Saturday, not too far from home, and walloped Saddleback, 54-12, at Segerstrom High.

It was fitting that with the clock expired in the Southern Conference football game between Orange Coast College and visiting Saddleback the ball was in the air. The final pass was intercepted by OCC linebacker Paco Potter to seal the Pirates' 55-48 upset of the Gauchos, who came in ranked No. 11 in Southern California and No. 21 in the state. The Saddleback offense also came in ranked No. 1 in passing in the 37-team Southern California Football Assn., but had difficulty keeping up with an OCC offense led by sophomore Jon Newsom.
