One Vaqueros player, Anthony Cappiello, was ejected while inside the dugout in the fourth inning. Their coach disputed the call, along with other infractions, with the home-plate umpire.

GLENDALE - Well aware it was coming into a game with a fairly evenly-matched opponent, the Glendale Community College baseball team put an all-around game together Tuesday night. With just a handful of games left in the regular season, the Vaqueros, who are ranked third by the California Community College Baseball Coaches Assn., hosted No. 5 Bakersfield - a team they'd split a pair of games with - in a crucial Western State Conference South Division game at Stengel Field. GCC was backed by another solid outing from starting pitcher Angel Rodriguez, quality defense and enough offense for a 5-1 win. “The pitchers did their jobs, the defense did it and we did everything right,” said the Vaqueros' Justin Jones, who was three for five with two runs batted in and a stolen base.
