On March 18, the Vaqueros baseball team beat El Camino College in the longest game of the season, which ended after 12 innings with a final score of 7-6.
“We’ve been very persistent,” said coach Chris Cicuto.
After lots of back and forth scoring the Vaqs led 4-3 entering the ninth inning. However they were unable to hold the lead as El Camino scored another run and tied the game 4-4. The game then went into extra innings.
After a quiet 10th, both teams had runs come across in the 11th.
The game ended in the 12th inning when the Vaqs were able to answer El Camino’s run in the bottom half of the inning with two of their own.
Freshman Yuya Okuda led the Vaqs resurgence with three RBIs and a run scored.
“Our pitchers did an outstanding job the whole game,” said Cicuto.
