Break Goes Wolverines' Way in Victory over Citrus

With darkness looming over the San Bernardino Valley College's baseball field, one little extra twitch gave the Wolverines the break they needed for a victory.

Citrus College pitcher Matthew Sanchez was called for a balk with runners on second and third in the seventh inning of a tie game, allowing Nathaniel Sisk to score what was game-winning run as the Wolverines beat the Owls 5-4 in a game halted by darkness after eight innings.

The Owls jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings against San Bernardino Valley starter Andrew Aguilera. But Aguilera settled down from there, going six innings striking out six while allowing seven hits.

San Bernardino Valley chipped away at the Citrus lead, scoring single runs in the third and fourth on RBI doubles from Joshua Torrance and Raymond Andrade. In the fifth, Citrus reliever Hayden Petrovich had troubles with his control. A wild pitch allowed Torrance to score, then, two batters later, he walked Adrian Garcia to force home Tyler Van Marter from third.

Sisk was 2-for-4 with two runs scored for the Wolverines, while Garcia was 3-for-3, including the RBI.
