The Citrus Baseball squad travelled to East Los Angeles College on Tuesday for their third game of the 2019 season. The Owls lost to the Huskies 2-7, moving to 1-2 overall. 

Freshman Kanta Kobayashi went 3 for 4 on the day, including a double in the 8th, and scored a run. Kobayashi also snagged a stolen base to round out his stat line. Teppei Fukuda hit a double that drove in a run in the 1st and later drove in the 2nd Owl run on a sacrifice fly in the 3rd inning. Thomas Aceituno went 2 for 3 with a run scored. 

Citrus is back at it tomorrow when they host Rio Hondo at 2:00 PM.  The Owls will then travel to Rio Hondo Friday for another 2:00 start.
