Garrett Rau was 4-for-5 and starter Blair Walters pitched six strong innings as the visiting Ventura College baseball team won its 11th straight game this month, 7-2, over cross-county rival Moorpark Saturday afternoon.
Rau, who broke Jose Vargas' year-old school record for career hits Wednesday, added a pair of doubles, three RBIs and two runs scored. The Camarillo High product had 11 hits in 15 at bats in three wins last week.
Walters allowed just a pair of hits through five innings until he ran into trouble leading 3-0 in the bottom of the sixth.
Moorpark's Daniel Nimoy and Cliff Quick singled with one out and scored on a double by Mario Landeros.
With the tying run on second, Walters induced a pop out to end the threat.
Max Javate, James Pinto and closer Nolan Rudman provided three innings of scoreless relief as the Pirates' lineup poured on the four insurance runs in the seventh and eighth innings.
Quick was 2 for 4 to pace the Moorpark offense.
Rau got the Pirates off on the right foot, leading off the game with a double and scoring on Rey Garcia's RBI groundout. He made it 2-0 in the fifth with an RBI double off the centerfield wall, which plated catcher Mike Yingling from first base.
LaVoie, batting second behind Rau, was 1 for 2 with three walks, meaning the top two hitters in the Pirates' order reached base eight times in 10 plate appearances.
