El Camino Real 3, Oaks Christian 1--The No. 10 Conquistadores (7-2) scored two runs in the seventh when pitcher Ashley Freeman (8-2-1) overthrew first base on a two-out bunt by Katie Goldblatt in a nonleague game at Cal Lutheran.

Melissa Coogan (7-2) allowed one hit, struck out 10 and walked one for El Camino Real.

Oaks Christian is 8-2-1.

Birmingham 7, Bell 0--Freshman Pauline Morquecho (6-2) pitched a perfect game with eight strikeouts in a nonleague game at Birmingham (10-3-1).

Moorpark 1, Simi Valley 0--Olivia Chacon (4-1) pitched her second consecutive nine-inning shutout for the Musketeers (5-4, 2-0) in a Marmonte League game at Rancho Santa Susana Community Park in Simi Valley.


Hart 8, Valencia 2--The Indians reached a sweet 16 of sorts, winning for the 16th time in 16 games against the Vikings in a Foothill League game at Valencia.

Bill Susdorf's three-run home run capped a five-run sixth inning for Hart, which has dominated Valencia since the school began playing varsity baseball in 1996.

Susdorf, who has signed with UCLA, also had a run-scoring double for Hart (9-0, 2-0).

"He's our guy," Hart Coach Jim Ozella said. "He's clutched up before and he'll do it again."

Valencia (4-3, 1-1) tied the score, 2-2, on a solo home run by Richie Martin in the fourth inning but failed to get a runner past second base after that.

Eric Posthumus (3-0) of Hart allowed one earned run on three hits in six innings.

Chris Valaika, who batted in the No. 9 spot, had two hits and scored two runs for Hart, ranked No. 2 in the region by The Times.

"Unfortunately, we had to pitch to Bill Susdorf, plus the two batters ahead of him and behind him," said Valencia Coach Jared Snyder.
