The junior who’s committed to UCLA finished the game in center field and made a running catch. Jayson Balades started for Oxnard and gave up two runs in six innings.
- The Valencia baseball team has a one-game lead over Hart with two games left to play in the Foothill League season. Valencia is coming off a 16-13 win over Saugus.

Brian Mundell hit for the cycle and drove in five runs for Valencia. Hart shut out West Ranch, 12-0, behind six scoreless innings from Garrett Gooding. Steve Rosso had another good game at the plate, going 4-for-4. Valencia finishes the Foothill League season with a pair of games against Canyon (5-8 in league).
