IRVINE -- The So Cal Sparrows earned a huge doubleheader sweep of the Ventura County Pirates Saturday at Northwood High.

The Sparrows held on to win the first game 5-4 after taking a 5-0 lead. Ventura County mounted a rally that just fell short.

Adrian Campos (LA Valley College) crushed a solo home run.

Joshua Sheck (Irvine Valley College) went 4-for-4 with one RBI. Joey Holman ripped two RBI.

Bryant Durflinger (Cypress College) pitched five no-hit innings.

The Sparrows won the second game 11-6. The key was a five-run sixth inning.

Sheck's stellar day continued, as he followed up a four hit performance with three in Game 2. He blasted a home run and three RBI and tallied seven total hits on the day - not too shabby!

Jacob Nemeth (Azusa Pacific) cranked a home run and four RBI.

Ventura County faces Inland Valley on Sunday.

So Cal is off until Tuesday when they travel south to Solana Beach.
