Cuesta Hold Off Chargers

Cuesta Hold Off Chargers

Baseball knocked off #7 Cypress, 13-9, to open the Cuesta/Hancock Spring Break Tournament. Winning Pitcher Cole Tucker allowed only two earned runs, while striking out six Chargers and left the game with an eight-run lead. Cypress worked back into the game, thanks in part to five Cuesta errors, but the Cougars added an insurance run in the bottom of the 8th to keep them at bay. Third Baseman Mason Grotto went 3-for-4 on the day to lead the Cougars' offense. Cuesta hosts #2 Cerritos tomorrow (2:30) and plays #5 Merced on Thursday (Noon).
