Morse is solid in 5-2 road win

Colby Morse didn’t allow a run until the eighth inning on Saturday, leading SBCC to a 5-2 WSC North baseball victory at Moorpark.

Morse, a 6-5 sophomore right-hander, allowed just two runs on nine hits in 7 2/3 innings with four strikeouts and no walks. DJ Gunderson got the final four outs to notch his third save.
SBCC’s defense turned two double plays, including one by Morse.

Robert Vickers drilled a two-out, two-run double in the fifth and Andrew Smith gave the Vaqueros (13-12, 7-4) a 4-0 lead with a two-out RBI single in the seventh.

It was the fifth win in seven games for second-place Santa Barbara, which moved within a game of conference leader Cuesta (8-3).

SBCC plays at Oxnard on Monday. The next home game is Tuesday against Ventura at 2:30 p.m.
