The El Paso Community College baseball lost four games to Cochise College last weekend by a combined score of 28-1.

He also leads the team in runs scored (6), hits (12) and runs batted in (12).Though the Tejanos are only averaging 3.4 runs a game, their offense has been even more anemic as of late.

 

During their seven-game losing streak, El Paso Community College has only managed to score eight runs.The Tejanos will start an extended road trip when they travel to Laredo College this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15 & 16, for doubleheaders on each day.
