Fresno, Calif. - The spring break road trip came just in time for Cypress College baseball.

After not hitting like they did for most of the year over the past few games, the Chargers got back to winning with a 2-0 victory over Cuesta in their first game of the week, a 13-2 pounding of College of the Canyons in their second matchup, and a tight 4-3 decision over host Fresno City College in their final game of the road trip.


Daniel Poncedeleon was untouchable in five-hit, seven-inning scoreless outing that earned him an impressive victory over one of the state's top teams, Cuesta College. Darren Gidley got his seventh save of the season in two innings of work.

Rowan Wick's solo homer, and a run batted in by Starr accounted for the only two runs of the game.


Cypress put it on Canyons with a 13-2 rout, before closing out the week with a hard-fought one-run victory over Fresno.


Despite getting outhit 14-5 by Fresno City, Cypress made the most of its opportunities by scoring four runs on five hits in a 4-3 non-conference victory.

Brad Hartong was responsible for two of those hits, as well as two runs scored. Alex Newmann had the only RBI for Cypress in the game, while Dylan Moore and Jake MacWilliams each scored once in the game.

Ricky Schafer scored his fourth win of the year with a solid performance out of the bullpen, and Darren Gidley shut Fresno down in the ninth to notch his eighth of the year.

Cypress returns home on Thursday, April 12 to get back into Orange Empire Conference play when they host Saddleback College at 2 p.m.
