Harbor Is Defeated by Cypress, 7-6

April 10, 1992

Reliever Rick Orr pitched out of a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the top of the ninth inning as the Cypress College baseball team beat Harbor, 7-6, in a nonconferece game Thursday at Cypress.

The Seahawks, ranked third in the state, had scored twice in the ninth on a single by Mark Lewis and on pinch-hitter Steve Sell's bases-loaded walk. But Orr struck out Dwon Knighton and Kris Radcliffe and got Rolando Avila to ground out to earn his fourth save.

Eric Gonzalez's two-run, pinch-hit sixth-inning single cut Harbor's deficit to 5-4, but Cypress scored once in the seventh and in the eighth on Tony Martinez's solo homer.

Tristan Paul was three for four and scored twice for the Seahawks (24-8).
