Cuesta beats Hancock 4-1 behind Nelson's gem, enters tie for first

Cuesta baseball tied up the season series with Allan Hancock after a 4-1 win at home on Tuesday. 2012 All-WSC Pitcher, Andrew Nelson threw a three-hit complete game while striking out 10 Bulldogs.

Parker Hindle knocked in the first run for the Cougars with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. In the third inning, San Luis Obispo High graduate Marco Murillo scored on a wild pitch to put Cuesta up 2-0. A pair of infield errors in the fifth inning allowed Marco Murillo and Steve Herting to score as the Cougars went up 4-0.

Santa Ynez High School alum Felipe Gonzalez kept Nelson from a shutout by scoring on a walk with the bases loaded.

Cuesta is now 7-5 and tied for first in the WSC with Ventura and Santa Barbara City. Hancock fell to 5-7 in the WSC.

The Cougars play at Pierce College in Woodland Hills on Thursday, then head home to host the Brahmas on Saturday.
