Corsairs look to end long losing streak in final series

The College of the Redwoods baseball team will close out what has been a challenging season in a four-game series at Siskiyous this week.

The Corsairs, who are riding a 23-game losing streak, are still looking for their first conference wins of the campaign, but they’ll have a chance to get that breakthrough against a Siskiyous team that has not fared much better.

While CR comes into the series with a record of 4-28 (0-21 in the Golden Valley Conference), the Eagles are 10-25 and 3-18 in conference, including a pair of wins at Shasta this past weekend.

The four-game stand, which includes two make-up games from earlier in the year, gets under way in Weed on Wednesday with a single game.

The two clubs will also play a doubleheader on Thursday and a single game on Friday.

The Corsairs are coming off three losses at Feather River last week, losing 18-2, 16-4 and 6-3.

Among the highlights for the CR men in that series, Mateo Hamm had a home run in the second game and was 3-for-5 in the finale.

Former Fortuna Husky Regan Nyberg also made some noise at the plate and was 2-for-4 in game two, while former St. Bernard’s Crusader Jeran Ford doubled in the opening game.

For the season, Raul Soto-Romero leads the team with a .341 average and 18 RBIs, while former Eureka Logger Parker Rodgers is batting .331 with four doubles.

Gavyn Dansby is batting .307 and has a team-best eight doubles and eight stolen bases to go with 17 RBIs and a pair of triples.
