The Bakersfield College Baseball Team (3-3) got a huge game out of third baseman Tyson Brewer, and a solid start from Austin Toerner (0-1), but Reedley did a little bit more to remain undefeated in handing BC a 4-3 road loss Saturday afternoon in Visalia.
Brewer was three for four with two RBI coming on a double and a solo home run to lead off the top of the ninth inning and pull BC within one run, and it looked like the stage was set for a come-from-behind win.
With no outs following Brewer's solo shot, Chris Freeman pinch-hit for Harry Tyler and drew a walk. Konnor Dodge laid down a clean sacrifice bunt and put Freeman on second with the tying run and just one out on the board.
Yukoh Saito grounded out to the shortstop, holding Freeman at second with two outs and Coach Tim Painton decided to pinch-hit Patrick Reynier for Luke Lewis, but Travis Turner got Reynier swinging to end the ballgame and log his first save of the season for Reedley.
Toerner looked better early on than he did in a mixed debut last weekend that saw him allow the first eight Moorpark batters he faced to reach and score before settling down and retiring 10 straight in an eventual 10-8 victory
The sophomore gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks over six and one third innings, but was saddled with the decision when Tony Riley doubled in Sawyer Pittman and Alex Sarmienta in the sixth.
BC will wrap up a long weekend Sunday afternoon when they play College of the Sequoias at 1pm in Visalia.
