Palomar’s baseball had a successful week as well, improving their record to 6-3 with a pair of victories over Fullerton College. Handing the Hornet’s their first losses of the season, the Comets traveled to Hornet Field on Thursday where Palomar pitcher Troy Lamparello’s seven innings of efficient work (1 run, 5 hits allowed) on the mound kept Fullerton’s bats at bay. Offensively, third baseman Vince Mori provided for the Comets, going 3-4 with 1 run scored and a pair of RBI’s as Palomar won 8-1.
On the return matchup at Myer’s Field, the Comet’s jumped out to an early advantage, going 2-0 up by the fourth inning thanks to a solo home run by catcher Frank Christy. Fullerton tried to muster up a comeback in the top of the 6th, dragging one run back, but Palomar replied with two runs in the bottom half of the inning to secure the victory.
The Comets continue their season on Tuesday at 2 p.m. when they travel north to face Glendale College at UC Riverside’s field.
