Nick Mar tripled, drove in two runs and picked up the win in McClatchy's 6-2 victory over Sacramento today, giving the Lions the Metro Conference baseball title.
Mar pitched six innings before giving way to hard throwing Max Cordy, who threw a flawless seventh for the Lions (20-4, 13-1) and coach Mike de Necochea.
Hunter Caroloan had two hits and Jake Luigi and Alex Jang each doubled for the Lions. Nick Miller had two hits, including a triple, for Sacramento (17-7, 11-3).
McClatchy last won the Metro in 2008 before Rosemont won in 2009 and 2010.
