Updated: July 18, 2016

The Barons split a double header with the Ventura Halos on the road Saturday, losing the first game, 3-0, and winning the second game, 7-6.

In the first contest, starting pitcher Tyler Tungate threw 5.0 innings with four strikeouts before being relieved by Gary Smith for 1.0 inning in a game that was only seven innings.

The Barons were only able to put down three hits, and designated hitter Ernie De La Trinidad had the only extra base hit going 1×2 with a double.

After a quick turn around Henry Omana took the bump, pitching 6.0 innings and collecting seven strikeouts. Travis Bonner and Josh Bravin each threw 1.0 inning in relief with one strike out each. Ryan Paramo earned the win after pitching 1.1 innings with two strikeouts. Wesley Albert earned the save for the Barons, closing out the final two outs.

Right fielder Kevin Maxey (1×4) was the offensive hero for the team, knocking in the winning run in the ninth inning on a double. Third baseman Adonis Morrison (2×4), designated hitter Tyler Williams (2×5), and shortstop Sam Shaikin (2×5) contributed the majority of the Barons 10 hits.

The Compton squad will next take the field on Tuesday for the first of a three-game series against the Long Beach Legends.
