Mesa and Southwestern off to quick start

The Pacific Coast Athletic Conference started conference play in baseball last week and some of the squads have gotten off to a quick start.  San Diego Mesa College and Southwestern College are both 4-0 after mixed results during the pre-conference schedule.

San Diego Mesa has won its first four games in PCAC play and five in a row, sweeping past College of the Desert to open conference play and then recording a win over Grossmont College on Tuesday.  The Olympians have found their stride both at the plate and in the field, recording two shutouts and outscoring opponents 44-14 over the past five outings.  Mesa has the two best hitters in the conference through the first 16 games of the season, with Dominick Buso batting .433 and Raymundo Gutierrez .389.  The Olympians have also found some consistency on the mound, with Jacob Casson (3-0, 2.17 ERA) and Kobby Lopez (2-0, 0.00 ERA) leading the way.  The last time Mesa won a PCAC title was in 2012 when they shared the title with Southwestern.
