The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level.
Scott Hong (Glendale Community College, 2011) junior, Occidental College baseball: Having already singled and stole a base earlier in the game, the Tigers right fielder and No. 3 hitter reached base on a fielder's choice and came around to score the first of two ninth-inning runs, but it wasn't enough in a 4-2 loss to California Lutheran University on Saturday.
Later in the day, Kingsmen won, 7-3, to cap a doubleheader and send the Tigers to their sixth straight loss.
Still, Hong's successful year continues.
He's appeared and started in all 26 of his squad's games and leads the team with 27 runs, eight doubles, three triples, 14 walks and 22 stolen bases. He's also hitting .309 with 19 runs batted in, a .435 on-base percentage and a .521 slugging percentage.
