LA City’s South Coast Conference title hopes continued a downward spiral with loses to Cerritos and Compton Colleges. The Cubs lost to Cerritos, 9-5, on Tues., March 4. Compton topped the Cubs, 10-9, on Thurs., March 6. LA City is 3-13 overall and 0-5 in the South Coast Conference.

Cerritos broke the Cubs early in taking a 9-1 lead. LA City made a late game comeback but didn’t have the firepower at the plate to catch Cerritos. The Falcons are undefeated in SCC play at 5-0 and 13-8 overall.

Cerritos had an 2-1 early lead but broke the game open in the bottom of the fourth inning with three runs. They then scored four runs in the fifth.

LA City made it interesting with four runs in the eighth inning but couldn’t find the same batting magic in the ninth. Sophomore infielder Brian Perras (Clearwater HS) led Cub batters with four hits for the game.
