San Bernardino, CA -- Citrus College freshman Marcos Martinez threw an eight inning gem, and the rest of the offense did more than enough to pick him up as the Owls won big over the host, San Bernardino Valley College 9-0.
It didn't take long for the Citrus bats to wake up. The Owls put up five runs in the top of the second inning, using their patience to key the big inning. Freshmen Nick Simons and Jonathon Reynoses both drew bases loaded RBI walks to put the Owls up 2-0. Freshman Jason De La Pena followed that up with a two out two RBI single, before sophomore Mike Rowland continued his hot start with an RBI single to centerfield that put Citrus up 5.
