The Hornet baseball team took a trip to Mount San Antonio College Tuesday night and won big 14-4.

The game was a tight one, until Fullerton exploded with nine runs in the ninth inning. Trailing 4-2 heading into the eighth, FC ripped off three runs to take a 5-4 lead. Laine Huffman hit a single allowing Joey Parente to score, and then Shane Carrier hit one to left field scoring Austin O'Banion to tie it up. The Hornets went up for good on a left field single by David Miranda that brought Carrier home.
