Steven Moreno had a base hit and drove in three runs; Scott Moller drove in two runs; and Tanner McVey and Brian Hosang combined to toss a five-hitter as Rocklin defeated Del Campo 5-2 in tonight's Sac-Joaquin Section Division II baseball playoff game at Sacramento City College.
With the win, Rocklin (20-9) wins the best of three series in two games over the Cougars (16-14).
The Thunder will play the winner of Tuesday's Roseville-Woodcreek series (Roseville leads 1-0) for the championship 6 p.m. on Monday at Sac City.
Coach Roc Murray's Thunder will bid for its fourth D-II section title in five seasons.
