Bear Cubs pull even

Playing with a short-term memory, Santa Rosa bounced back against Sierra as two of the state's top junior college baseball teams battled Thursday.

Scratching out runs and pitching with confidence, Santa Rosa took a 4-2 home win to regain momentum in a stellar season after Sierra captured the series opener.

Northern California's No. 1 and No. 2 teams play again Saturday in Rocklin for the Big 8 Conference lead.

"Every game is huge in the Big 8. We've got to win the series. That's the big thing," said first baseman Anthony Sequeira. "We've got to get better every game."

Shutdown pitching and ample hitting have carried Santa Rosa this season and the Bear Cubs needed everything working to edge Sierra.
