For the first time in 12 years, the Southern California College baseball team defeated Cal State Fullerton, 9-8, Wednesday at Fullerton.
The victory was the second time in two weeks that the Vanguards have defeated an NCAA Division 1 team. Earlier this month, SCC, a NAIA team, defeated UC Irvine, 9-5, at Irvine.
A four-run second inning gave the Vanguards (28-14-2) a 6-2 lead. The Titans (25-24-1) scored twice in the ninth inning to make it close.
Shortstop Dave Turney's two-run single sparked the Vanguard's four-run second inning. Ron Nelson also had a second inning RBI to bring his RBI season total to 47.
