De Anza College baseball team turned the tide and defeated Chabot 7-5 after a massive home run on April 23.

De Anza led with three runs in the bottom of the first inning, before Chabot scored three runs in the third inning and two more at the top of the fourth.

De Anza stopped Chabot’s momentum in the fifth inning and tied the game.

Outfielder James Halpin, 20, communications major, hit a powerful home run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

“The pitcher got me with the cut fastball in the previous at bat, so I was looking to take away his outside pitch,” Halpin said. “He threw me a breaking ball, so I was ready for the pitch and just hit it out.”

Coach Erick Raich said he was satisfied with the game.

“We had a lot of injuries and adversities this year,” said Raich. “We finished the last home game for the season with a win.”

Pitcher Antonio Triest-Escobar, 19, communications major, said he was happy to win his last game at De Anza.  

“It was good to get the win and be the tone setter. I’m definitely happy we won today,” Triest-Escobar said. “Unfortunately I’m not going to be on the team next year, so it was nice to have the win to finish my career at De Anza.”
