Sierra College used another spirited outing from ace Josh Eagle, and Cosumnes River College had a big inning as the Big 8 Conference rivals won Northern California Super Regional baseball openers Friday.
Eagle struck out eight of the first 13 batters in a 5-3 win over top seed and host Feather River. CRC scored five in the ninth and beat Ohlone 10-4 in San Mateo.
Woodland bout tonight
Hometown favorite Vicente Escobedo (25-3) and Juan Ruiz (23-9) of Santa Clarita weighed in at the 130-pound limit Friday for their 10-round fight tonight at the Woodland Community & Senior Center.
The promoters announced Escobedo's North American Boxing Organization title will not be at stake, although he must win to keep alive his bid for a world junior-lightweight title shot this summer. The card begins at 7 p.m., with regional boxers in preliminary bouts.
