Sloppy fielding costs SBCC in conference opener

SBCC had more errors than hits on Tuesday and Moorpark took advantage to post a 10-0 victory in a WSC North baseball opener at Moorpark.

Landon Hunt (8 innings) and Michael Coats combined on a three-hitter for the Raiders (6-8, 1-0). Chad Caraccioli took the loss for the Vaqueros (6-9, 0-1), giving up five runs on five hits in 2 2/3 innings.

SBCC committed four errors and Moorpark’s last five runs were unearned.

“We hit some balls hard early but Chad pitched from behind all day,” said coach Ryan Thompson. “Then, we botched a few double-play balls and fell apart in the field.”

The Vaqueros will host Moorpark on Thursday at 2 p.m.
