In typical Imperial-area heat, the Imperial Valley College baseball team blew past visiting San Diego Mesa 10-1 Tuesday.
The lone Olympian run came in the ninth inning when Arab pitcher Jason Anderson walked Scott Lawless with the bases loaded to allow Michael Swan to score.
The Arabs got off to a quick start in the first inning. After Anderson allowed no hits in the top of the inning, Justin Winburn got on base and Jake Richter followed with a double, but the next two IVC batters failed to convert and the inning ended.
The third inning was a bit more productive as IVC's Ryan Parker led off with a single and was helped to third on an Olympian error during Winburn's next at-bat. Parker was called out at home, but Winburn scored on an Alfredo Vasquez RBI single. Ricky Guzman followed in Winburn's tracks thanks to an RBI single by Cory Moreno.
