On July 2, 2022 the SBL Bucs took a hard 7-2 loss against the Inland Empire Bucs at Cypress College.


The offense started an early rally in the first inning loading the bases without any outs, but the Bucs were only able to get a single run out of it, after a failed attempt to steal home. The offense stayed silent although multiple innings starting with early rallies without any outs.


The SBL Bucs’ player of the game was extra hitter Trent Turquand who went 2 for 3 with two singles and was one of the runs scored. When asked about his performance today, he said “I think I changed my mental approach today, I was a bit more aggressive.”


Pitching also had a slow day today giving up six earned runs, when asked about his pitching staff, Coach Evan O’Meara said “pitching which is usually strong, even though there isn’t much of it, it kind of fell apart today.”



The SBL Bucs will play next against the East Los Angeles Dodgers on July 3, 2022 at Valley College at 4 pm.
