Chargers Cruise Over Rustlers

Chargers put on their best hitting performance of the season today against the visiting Golden West Rustlers.


Cypress, Calif. - If there was such a thing as a picture perfect swing, Rowan Wick of Cypress College had it today.  He went 4 for 4 with a two run opposite field bomb in the sixth inning to help the Chargers cruise into there fifth Orange Empire Conference victory.  Cypress (11-19, 5-11) defeated Golden West (18-15-1, 9-10)  10 to 5 keeping there slim chance at the playoffs alive.

 Cypress starting pitcher, Stephen Derr, was nearly flawless today as he had his best start of the season. Derr went seven and two-thirds innings for the Chargers while only allowing two unearned runs.  Alon Leichman came in in relief, while Kevin Klaess, and Josh Anderson got their fair share on the mound as well.

Rowan Wick may have led the offensive charge, but Dylan Fitzgerald, Parker Starr, and Dylan Moore were not too far behind.  As a team, the Chargers reached base safely on seventeen hits. Fitzgerald and Starr came together with a combined three RBI's while Moore added two hits to the surge.

The Chargers will finish up the series against the Rustlers tomorrow at Golden West.  Cypress is in a must win scenario for the playoffs to even come down to a coin flip.
