By Jesse Muñoz/COC Sports Information Director
College of the Canyons closed out the conference portion of its schedule with a 10-8 win over visiting Bakersfield College on Friday, as the Cougars plated six runs across the first three innings to build an insurmountable lead against the Renegades.
COC starter Malakai Correll (2-2) got the start and earned the win with five effective innings of work. He allowed two earned runs on four hits and walk, striking out two in the process.
The Renegades were able to make things interesting with a five-run outburst in the seventh that got Bakersfield to within a pair at 9-7.
After the Cougars added a run on a Tafton Hensley sac-fly to put the game at 10-7, Bakersfield offered one final gasp in the form of a solo home run by Jacob Baker. From there Yosfan was able to shut the door at 10-8.
