SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- The Master’s College baseball team was set to finish its three-game series with Biola in La Mirada Monday, but because of rain, the game was moved to Santa Clarita. Much like the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader Biola pitching shut down the Mustangs, this time to the tune of a no-hitter, en route to a 6-0 Eagle victory.
Five Biola pitchers combined on the no-no, striking out six along the way. Josh Staumont did most of the work, throwing five and a third scoreless innings. The Mustangs were not without opportunities, however, as they walked seven times, leaving the bases loaded in the sixth and then stranding two more runners in the eighth.
James Scott (Canyon Country, CA) kept the Mustangs in the game throwing six innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits while striking out two. Hope for a comeback all but disappeared, though, in the top of the ninth as Biola scored three times. Prior to Monday’s game, March 3, 2011 was the last time the Mustangs had been no-hit (Vanguard’s Antonio Peraza).
With the loss the Mustangs fell to 4-2 overall and 1-2 in GSAC play. They will be back in action Friday (2 p.m.) and Saturday (DH 11 a.m. & 2 p.m.), hosting San Diego Christian on Reese Field.
