Bakersfield College (1-3) gave up 11 runs in the fourth inning and lost to Glendale (2-0), 14-8, at home on Tuesday. The Renegades scored six runs in the final four innings, but it wasn’t nearly enough.
“It shouldn’t take three pitchers to get three outs,” BC head coach Tim Painton said. “We walked a few guys that inning and worked behind every hitter. Glendale did a really good job offensively that inning. Put up a huge inning.”
Three different pitchers threw in the disastrous inning for BC. Joey Salinas, who got the loss, came in to start the frame. He gave up a double and home run to the first two batters. Salinas walked two and gave up another hit before exiting.
Walker Frayne, who came in to pitch next, walked three of the five batters he faced. Eventually, Frankie Villasenor closed out the inning. Villasenor got the final out on a fielder’s choice but not before giving up four straight singles.
Eight of Glendale’s 12 hits came in the inning, along with both of BC’s errors.
Brycin Hernandez, Trey Harmon and Colby Freeman each had two runs batted in for the Renegades in the game.
