Cypress Outlast Hawks at Home

Cypress, Calif. - On a day when Cypress College couldn't get much going with the bats, the Cypress pitching staff came up big to hold Santiago Canyon College to a pair of runs in a 4-2 Orange Empire Conference victory for Cypress at home.

The Chargers (28-4, 15-1)only finished with a total of six hits on the day, including a pair by Olivia Arredondo, and one each by Jessica Reichner, Mallor Campbell, Arren Nunez and Courtney McGee. Reichner and Nunez each had one RBI for Cypress, while McGee drove in two herself.

Stephanie Luhmann 12-1 came out of the bullpen to toss 5.1 innings of scoreless relief by allowing one walk, four hits, and five strikeouts.

Cypress jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after Campbell tripled then scored on a wild pitch. The Chargers tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the third inning when McGee drove in Chelsea Jewett and Campbell with a bases clearing double to left center.

In their next at-bat, the Chargers scored their fourth and final run of the game when Arredondo reached on a leadoff double down the left field line, then came in to score on a grounder by Reichner that was called an error on the SCC shortstop.

Santiago Canyon would claw back with one run in the sixth and another in the seventh, but that is as close as the Chargers would let them get the rest of the way in a 4-2 league victory on Wednesday.

The Chargers will return to action next week when they take on Fullerton College at home on Wednesday, April 11 at 3 p.m.
