Golden West College’s football team squared its record at 2-2 with a 13-11 win over Bakersfield College on the Rustlers’ home field Saturday afternoon.

In an evenly matched contest in Huntington Beach, the green-and-gold rallied from a 9-6 deficit in the fourth quarter to best the Renegades.

Beau Kalbacher passed for 118 yards and one score for GWC. The winning touchdown was scored by Wulfe Ratzlaff on a 2-yard run at the 12:54 mark of the fourth quarter.

Angels find another way to lose

As the last part of the 2018 regular baseball season winds down, the Los Angeles Angels are seeing a once-promising campaign turning into an embarrassing slide.

On Saturday in Houston, the Halos led 5-1 in the top of the either, only to give up nine runs – keyed by a costly throwing error – in the bottom of the inning and lose 10-5. It was the Angels’ fourth straight loss and dropped the team record to 75-80. One more loss will make it impossible for the Halos to finish with a winning record.

The highlight of the game was Mike Trout’s 38th home run of the season – in that five-run fifth – but for the Astros its was Justin Verlander setting a new major league record for strikeouts in a season by a starter with 1,089 K’s. The win also reduced the team’s magic number to clinch the AL West to five games.

On Sunday the Angels will again take on Houston again at Minute Maid Park with Tyler Skaggs (8-8) starting for the Halos.
