Hawks beat the Mendocino Eagles by 16 runs

The Cosumnes River College baseball team beat the Mendocino College Eagles at home on Thursday with the final score of 17-1.
The Hawks dominated on both sides of the game and outhit the Eagles 19-4 and improved to an overall record of 7-5.
“It was our best output for the year,” said Head Coach Don Mico. “Out of the first 11 games, this was probably our best game we’ve had all year.”
Sophomore pitcher Nate Thompson got the start on the bump for the Hawks and pitched five innings while striking out six and allowed just two hits and one run.
“I felt pretty good about it,” Thompson said about his start. “It makes it a lot easier when you have a lot of runs like that.”
The Hawks’ offense was led by freshman catcher Harry Owen who went 4-4 with six RBIs including a two run homerun.
Freshman outfielder Ethan Walker said he was “pretty happy” with the team’s performance.
“You can’t do much better than 17 runs in a game,” Walker said. “We’re trying to hit hard line drives, ground balls and I think it just paid out.”
Mico said he feels good about the team as the season continues.
“On paper we look really good, but you know we just got to put it all together when we go out on the field,” Mico said.
Thompson said he feels confident about the team.
“We definitely have a good team this year,” Thompson said. “We should go far, hopefully make playoffs and get a championship.”
