Santa Barbara City College got an unearned run in the first inning but nothing else against Oxnard ace Luke Eubank. The former Newbury Park star allowed just four hits and struck out seven in 7 innings of work to lead the Condors to a 2-1 win to open up this best-of-three Sectional series.
Eubank improves to 12-0 on the year and lowered his microscopic ERA to 0.69.
Santa Barbara's Justin Bruce pitched all eight innings for the Vaqueros and made one mistake, a 2-run seventh inning single by Daniel Barnett.
Game two is Saturday at 1 p.m. from Oxnard College.
