It was a harmless hit, or so it seemed. In the second inning, with runners on second and third and two outs, Pasadena City College baseball team leftfielder Kori Grant hit a short pop that fell about 30 feet from home plate. The speedy Grant beat out the throw to first by Cerro Coso pitcher Roberto Hernandez for an infield single. In the process rightfielder Anthony Martinez crossed the plate from third followed moments later by hustling centerfielder Charles Smith, who scored all the way from second base.
One of the primary concerns going into the 2013 season for the Pasadena City College baseball team was the lack of reliable pitching arms for the Lancers.

The Pasadena City College baseball team continued its funk, losing to Oxnard College, 9-1, Tuesday in a non-conference game at Brookside Park's Jackie Robinson Memorial Field. The Lancers fell to 2-10 while the Condors have won five straight games (two v. PCC) since starting the year at 0-5.

Saturday home games are usually festive occasions for collegiate baseball teams. Parents of players are often more free to attend games and even weekend passersby will stop to take in the competition. The 2013 Pasadena City College baseball team, however, has not enjoyed its recent Saturdays at Brookside Park's Jackie Robinson Memorial Field.
The Pasadena City College baseball team seems to have a gem of a starter in freshman knuckleballer Tim Shiba. The question is will the team be able to give him enough run support? Such was not the case Saturday as Shiba's complete-game, 9-hitter resulted in a 4-3 loss by the Lancers against visiting Victor Valley College. The game was played at Brookside Park's Jackie Robinson Memorial Field.
