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.

When Mike Gillespie paces to the mound, or strolls across the diamond to discuss a call with an umpire, there is an ever-so-slight limp, the residue of an Achilles injury he said he will just have to endure, due to concerns about someone his age undergoing surgery. But his age, 72, notwithstanding, the UC Irvine baseball head man is determined to operate daily on his lineup card, in an effort to maximize his team's chances at victory. There was plenty of tinkering Wednesday and the result was a 3-2 triumph over Cal State Bakersfield in a nonconference game at Anteater Ballpark.
