It was pure domination for the Riverside City College men's baseball team as they played host to the Los Angeles Harbor Seahawks on Tuesday afternoon in non-conference action. The Tigers barreled 17 hits and plated a season-high 18 runs leading to an 18-0 victory.

Riverside's bats were scorching hot as they uncorked a season-high 17 hits leading to a season-high 18 runs. The top of the order was responsible for the bulk of the damage as the first four batters went a combined 10-for-15 and were responsible for 14 of the team's 18 runs. Leading the pack was sophomore right fielder Ulises Caballero. He went 3-for-5 with two RBI and four run scored. Sophomore center fielder Junior Coleman crossed the plate four times while barreling two hits and swiping a season-high three bags.

Freshman designated hitter Dylan Morace was a perfect 3-for-3 at hte dish as he was a homerun away from completing the cycle. He recorded a single, double and triple leading to a team-high five RBI. Freshman third baseman Matthew Ivancich turned over the lineup efficiently in the nine hole by going 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Sophomore starting pitcher Garrett Irvin was granted the start and was nearly untouchable. Aside from giving up a hit in the second inning, he was masterful by striking out the side on two separate occasions leading to a career-high 10 punch outs while throwing just 69 pitches in six innings of work.

A bullpen consisting of freshman trio Lawrence Castaneda, Drew D'Ambra and Ethan Sachs slammed the door behind him after each tossing an inning and allowing no hits.

Riverside (12-4) will continue action on Wednesday, February 27 against the Ventura College Pirates at 2 p.m. Follow live stats at www.rccathletics.com
