Ethan Gibbons made his debut with the Missouri Baptist University baseball team a successful one by allowing three hits and one run in an 8-1 complete-game victory over Belhaven.

The former Armijo High and Solano Community College standout, who transferred from Central Missouri, struck out five and walked one, needing just 72 pitches in his seven-inning effort.

Teammate Patrick Johnson (Rodriguez, Solano) also played well as the Spartans took two of three from Belhaven in the season-opening series, going 3 for 12 with a double, stolen base, three runs scored and an RBI.

Eddie Applin (Vanden, Solano) went a combined 1 for 7 with a run scored and an RBI as Arizona Christian (5-4, 5-4 GSAC) took two of three from Biola.

Derek Crenshaw (Solano) went 4 for 4 with a double, two runs, two RBIs and was hit by two pitches as Eastern New Mexico demolished Adams State 19-12. Crenshaw went a combined 6 for 8 in the complete a four-game sweep, ripping a triple and scoring twice in a 3-0 win in Game 3.

Geno Escalante (Rodriguez) went hitless in just two of Mount Olive’s 54 games in 2012 but was held without a hit twice last week – though he walked three times in that span. In a three-game of sweep of Newberry, he had a solo homer in the first game, walked twice and scored twice in the second game and was intentionally walked as part of a four-run ninth in a 6-5 victory in the third game. The Trojans are 6-0 and ranked No. 1 in Division II.

Culver-Stockton (4-3) swept a three-game series with Ecclesia with Gene Nanney (Rodriguez, Solano) scoring two runs in each of the first two games, walking four times, getting hit by a pitch and stealing a base.

Kagen Hopkins (Vacaville, Solano) hurled 2 2-3 scoreless relief innings as Chico State (4-0) annihilated Academy of Art 7-1 in the first game of a doubleheader. The second game, a 13-0 victory, was the first no-hitter in Wildcats history.

UC San Diego took two of three from Grand Canyon as James Mossholder (Armijo, Solano) scored a run as a pinch-runner in a 10-5 victory for the Tritons (4-2) in the first game.

Cal State Monterey Bay split four games with Central Washington with A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) having a hand in both victories. He got the win as he pitched a scoreless top of the ninth before the Otters (5-2) scored a run in the bottom of the frame for a 10-9 victory. Three games later, Quintero closed out a 4-0 shutout with another scoreless inning.

Former crosstown rivals met in Oklahoma when Christian Torres (Fairfield) and St. Gregory’s (4-4) took two of three from Domenick Romero (Rodriguez) and visiting Friends (2-4).

Torres ripped a double as St. Gregory’s took the first game 5-0. Romero then went 2 for 5 with three RBIs and a run scored in Friends’ 12-10 win in the second game in eight innings. Torres countered by going 3 for 3 with three RBIs, a double and a stolen base in St. Gregory’s 6-5 victory in the finale. He finished the series 5 for 10, Romero 2 for 9.

Tabor split its first four games as Paul Sciacca (Armijo, Solano) went a combined 2 for 5 with an RBI.

Softball

Andriana Collins (Rodriguez) shook off a rocky first outing to get the win in her second start for UC Santa Barbara (5-0). The junior left-hander gave up two hits and one run with one strikeout and three walks in 1 2-3 innings during a 7-1 win over Wichita State. She then hurled four scoreless innings, allowing just one hit with four strikeouts and no walks in a 6-3 downing of Mississippi Valley State.

Preseason No. 3 California split its first four games of the season at the Kajikawa Classic at Tempe, Ariz. Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) went 2 for 3 and Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) 1 for 4 with a stolen base in a 3-2 nine-inning loss to Indiana. Cordes later had a two-run double in a 7-4 loss to Florida and finished the series 3 for 15. Wallace played in two other games at first base.

Oregon State also took part in the Tempe tournament, going 3-3. Kiara “Ya” Garcia (Rodriguez)  went 4 for 12, including 2 for 4 in a 5-3 loss to Kentucky.

Tennessee Chattanooga dropped four of five games at the National Training Center Invitational at Clermont. Fla., topping Long Island 6-4 for the only win.

Kasey Tydingco (Armijo, Vacaville) had at least one hit each game and scored a run in each of the first four, finishing the series 5 for 15.

Bethune-Cookman started the season 0-4 by getting outscored 30-4 in the Panhandle Invitational at Tallahassee, Fla. Calisha Shelley (Armijo) went 3 for 13 for the Wildcats.

Former Rodriguez High teammates Alexis Pickett and Marissa Escalante are among the catchers for UC Riverside, which opened the season by going 2-3 in the Fresno Kickoff Tournament.

Escalante, a freshman, went 2 for 2 with a double and two walks in a season-opening 10-2 win over Southern Mississippi. She later went 3 for 3 with a RBI in a 5-3 loss to UTEP, finishing the tourney 5 for 10.

Pickett, a senior, drove in the first run and scored the second in a 2-1 win over Sacramento State, winding up 1 for 6 with three walks for the tournament.

Saint Mary’s had a tough go in the Oceanic Time Warner Cable Paradise Classic in Honolulu, going 0-6. Alexis Konstantinopoulos went 3 for 11 for the Gaels, including 2 for 2 with a walk in a 1-0 loss to Hawaii.

Gabby Lopez (Rodriguez) went 3 for 6, including 2 for 3 as a pinch-hitter as Idaho State started the season 2-3 at the St. George Tournament Utah.

Conversley, Oregon Tech started the season 6-0 with Melissa Logan (Fairfield, Solano) going 2 for 17 with a double. She also pitched one inning, striking out all three batters she faced.

Hannah Wilbur (Solano) pitched the final inning of a 9-0 no-hit victory for Oklahoma Wesleyan over Oklahoma Wesleyan, striking out the side. She also had two scoreless innings in a 16-5 thumping of Central Missouri, fanning one.
