Ram pitcher strikes out 13
Fresno City College right-hander Dominic Topoozian overwhelmed Taft College here today with a four-hit, 13-strikeout performance that led the Rams to a 3-1 Central Valley Conference victory.
Topoozian, a freshman from Buchanan High, gave up his only run on three hits in the second, allowed TC a hit in the third and then completely shut down the Cougars the rest of the way to boost his record to 3-0. He’s given up just five earned runs in 37.2 innings.
Cougar sophomore Allan Sanchez was the hard-luck loser. He pitched eight innings, gave up three runs on seven hits, struck out four and walked two – one of them intentionally.
Josh Roelofs, Matt Moorehead, Loren Cutolo and Luis Trinidad had Taft’s hits.
The teams finish up their three-game series Saturday in Taft at 1 p.m. The Cougars (1-4 CVC, 4-10-1 overall) beat Fresno 7-4 on Tuesday.
