TORRANCE, Calif. - After a shaky start to begin the game, Jimmy Galicia pitched a complete game in a 4-3 win over East Los Angeles on Monday afternoon.

The game originally scheduled for Tuesday, was moved to Monday due to inclement weather.

The Warriors (15-6, 9-1) had to come from behind again after falling behind 3-0 in the first inning.

After Galicia struck out the first batter of the game, the Huskies (4-16, 1-6) sent seven more batters to the plate and scored three runs on 3 hits and two hit batsmen.  

The Warriors would come back to knot the game up at 3-3 after scoring twice in the fourth inning and one run in the fifth inning.  

Chase Cosner led the 4th inning off with a walk and scored after Diego Alarcon doubled down the left field line.  Alarcon would eventually come around to score on a sacrifice fly by Chris Villavicencio

In the fifth inning, Crixtian Taveras led the inning off with a base hit.  He advanced to second on a stolen base and to third on a wild pitch. He came around to score the tying run after a throwing error by the shortstop.

The Warriors loaded the bases with no outs after Chase Cosner led the inning off by getting hit by a pitch.  Alarcon and Aaron Orozco had consecutive base hits to make the bases juiced. Cosner came around to score on Villavicencio's second sac fly of the game which put the Warriors ahead for the first and final time.  

Jimmy Galicia picked up his sixth win of the season.  Galicia tossed 9.0 innings and allowed three runs on six hits, zero walks, and fanned ten batters. Galicia should've finished the game by getting 16 straight outs after a fourth inning single but an error extended the final inning by one batter and Galicia retired 16 of the last 17 Huskies.  

Isaac Chavez took the loss for the Huskies after allowing the winning run in the eighth inning. Paco Dominguez drew the start for the Warriors and labored through 5.2 innings and allowed three runs on six hits, one walk, and four strikeouts. 

The Warriors had eight hits for the game.  Diego Alarcon was 2-for-4 with one run and one RBI.  Crixtian Taveras was 2-for-4 with one run.  

The Warriors are scheduled to play East Los Angeles again on Thursday at East Los Angeles.  First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM, weather permitting.
