Mt. SAC Baseball continues to struggle away from home early, dropping their second straight game with a 2-1 defeat in the home of the Cypress College Chargers on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
Though the Mounties had split a double-header at San Diego Mesa, Mt. SAC looked to build on the early road gain coming into the bout with the Chargers.
Cypress College was coming off a 6-4 loss to San Diego City, where they failed to rally back from behind in the later innings.
"Our goal as a team was to put as much pressure as we could on them and make all the routine plays defensively," Mounties' head coach John Knott said.
With the loss on the road, Mt. SAC remains at 4-3 for the season and will travel to Orange Coast College to take on the Pirates on Friday, Feb. 9, with first pitch at 2 p.m.
Only eight games remain before league play begins and the Mounties look to start building momentum against the challenges ahead.
"We hope to continue to improve and get guys battle tested as we prepare for league," Knott said.
