After taking a pair of conference victories, the Santa Monica College baseball team will try to climb out of last place in the Metropolitan Conference when it hosts Harbor at 2:30 p.m. today and Long Beach City at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Harbor and Long Beach are 9-3 and tied for first place in the Metro. The Corsairs have lost twice to Harbor and have split a pair with Long Beach.
In non-league action the Corsairs will play the USC junior varsity at 2:30 p.m. Friday at USC and the Cal State Los Angeles junior varsity at 2:30 p.m. Monday at Cal State.
Coach Marty Berson said the Corsairs are showing a renewed confidence after an early 10-game losing streak. "Nobody bothers us. We're going to make an impact on this league. Our goal is to catch El Camino (7-5) and take over third place."
