The Ventura College baseball team used an 11-run seventh inning to climb out of a 11-run hole and halt rival Oxnard College's nine-game winning streak with a 13-12 win in 11 innings on a streak-snapping Thursday afternoon.

Down 12-1, Ventura (7-11, 2-6) was on its way to a sixth straight loss before piling up 11 of its 22 hits in knotting the score in the seventh inning.

Sophomore second baseman Derek Ring drew a bases loaded hit by pitch in the bottom of the 11th to win the game.

Ring was 3-6 with two RBIs. Allen Gwynn was 4 for 5 with two runs scored. Adam Barry had three hits and three runs.

Despite suffering its fourth walk-off loss of the season, Oxnard (15-6) still leads the WSC North by two games at 7-1.

The Condors soared to a 7-1 lead after J.C. Aguayo's three-run home run in the second inning followed Jonathan Erb's first-inning grand slam.

Aguayo was 4 for 5 with five RBIs and allowed one run through six innings. Jake Mahan was 4 for 5 with four runs scored.

Two days after being punished 16-1 in San Luis Obispo, the Moorpark College baseball team snapped its eight-game losing streak with an 8-3 win over visiting Cuesta.

Freshman pitcher Landon Hunt pitched a complete game and freshman outfielder Robert Toczynski cleared the loaded bases with a three-RBI double to give Moorpark a 5-1 lead through four innings.

Moorpark (6-13-1, 1-7) had dropped its first seven WSC North games. Cuesta is 11-9, 4-4.
