The Costa Mesa High baseball team broke open a scoreless tie with
four runs in the fourth, three in the fifth and two in the seventh to
overcome six errors and claim a 9-4 win at Bolsa Grande Wednesday in
a makeup consolation game from the Newport Elks Tournament.
Sophomore Jeff Waldron went 2 for 4 with four RBIs and fellow
sophomore Alex Pisarski went 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles and one
RBI to pace the Mustangs' 13-hit attack.
Meanwhile, senior starter George Vargas was holding the Matadors
in check, yielding just two hits and one unearned runs in five
innings, before being relieved. He struck out four and did not issue
a walk. The victory evened Vargas' record at 3-3 and allowed the
Mustangs to improve to 7-10.
