Caltech baseball team puts end to 228-game losing skid

PASADENA, Calif. — California Institute of Technology's baseball team ended a 228-game losing streak Saturday with a 9-7 victory over Pacifica — the Beavers' first win in nearly 10 years.

After dropping the first game of its season-opening doubleheader 5-0, Caltech won the second behind a complete-game seven-inning effort by freshman Daniel Chou. Caltech hadn't won since Feb. 15, 2003.

"It was almost as if they had been there before," first-year coach Matthew Mark said.
