COC’s winning streak ends at 10 straight

The foundation of College of the Canyons baseball’s 10-game Western State Conference South Division winning streak was its offense.

The crack in that foundation on Thursday was that offense in a 6-1 loss to first-place Glendale College in a critical meeting on the road.

“We just didn’t come up with many big hits today,” said Cougars head coach Chris Cota.

COC (16-12 overall, 11-5 WSCSD) scattered eight hits, but didn’t get on the board until a ninth-inning single by Corey Sims plated Quincy Quintero, who doubled earlier in the inning.

But that’s where the rally stopped.

Cougar Trey Williams was 2-for-4 in the game.

Glendale (18-9, 13-3) plated three runs in the first, one in the second and two in the seventh.

The Cougars have eight division games left in the year and won’t see Glendale or second-place Bakersfield again in the regular season.

The top two teams in the division will move on to the Southern California regional playoffs. Six other teams will receive at-large berths.

“It’s going to be as difficult as we make it,” Cota said on making the postseason. “If we take care of business and play the game like we should, we have a chance to finish out strong.”
