GLENDALE — With the members of the Glendale Community College baseball team contending for a spot in the Southern California Regionals, they turned to starting pitcher Ryan Sheriff for a quality performance to help keep them there Tuesday afternoon.
Sheriff didn't disappoint, as he went the distance and struck out a season-high 16 to spark visiting Glendale college to a 6-2 win against West L.A. College in a Western State Conference Southern Division contest.
The Vaqueros improved to 19-11, 10-7 in the division. They are tied for second place with Citrus, which picked up a 3-2 victory against Bakersfield on Tuesday. Glendale trails L.A. Pierce (11-6 in the division) by one game with the teams set to meet at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Stengel Field. Pierce suffered an 8-5 loss to College of the Canyons on Tuesday.
