Story posted on: 4/29/08
The Cubs felt the depths of famine last week in dropping three games to South Coast Conference opponents.
LA City lost at El Camino, 4-1 (April 22), despite a powerful nine inning pitching performance from Cub sophomore Christian Martinez (Los Angeles HS).
The Cubs returned to El Camino two days later (April 24) and suffered another disappointing loss in a close contest, 8-5.
Freshman pitcher Josh Sotello ((Eagle Rock HS) was strong in 4-2/3 innings of shutout pitching. Freshman outfielder Eric Smalling (Pasadena HS) recorded a single and a home run. Freshman utility player Issac Alonso (Warren HS) also played a noteworthy game behind four RBI’s and a three-run homer in the top of the ninth.
The Cubs week ended poorly with a 9-3 defeat at Mt. San Antonio College. LA City’s record dropped to 8-29 overall and 3-18 in the South Coast Conference.
