NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The Glendale Community College baseball team passed a test of character Saturday, overcoming an early three-run deficit to pull out a 4-3 victory against East Los Angeles at home. Most of the Vaqueros' wins have been blowouts so far this season, but they were able to come out on top in a nail biter in the third round of the Western State Conference Tournament.
"We haven't been in a lot of close games so far this year," Glendale Coach Chris Cicuto said. "We've come out early, gotten big leads and held big leads so far this year, but a dogfight like we had today really shows a lot of character."
The offense wasn't there for Glendale (6-1) right off the bat. The Vaqueros didn't get their first hit until the fifth inning and their first runs came in the seventh. It was better late than never though.
