Irvine Loses Despite Record for Oberdank

Jeff Oberdank set a UC Irvine single-season hit record with a home run in the first inning, but Southern California College defeated the Anteaters, 4-3, in a nonconference baseball game Tuesday at Irvine.

Oberdank, a senior second baseman from Fullerton College, has 89 hits, one more than Mike Hirano had in 1979. It was the sixth consecutive loss for Irvine (26-26-1). Mark Deushane threw a 6-hitter with 11 strikeouts for Southern California (20-23).
