The Chabot College baseball team notched back-to-back nonconference wins over Diablo Valley, 11-5, and Contra Costa, 10-1, in recent action. The victories give the Gladiators (6-6) some momentum under coach Steve Friend as they prepare for their Coast Conference-Golden Gate Division opener at West Valley-Saratoga on March 7.
Chabot starter Levi Noddin went six strong innings to get the win against Contra Costa on Feb. 25. Noddin (2-0) allowed four hits and one earned run, striking out four and walking one. A trio of relievers, Augusto Pineda, Jacob Knight, and T.J. Meyers, each worked a scoreless inning. Chabot's Adam Hollar was 2 for 3 with a two-run homer and four RBI.
Hot-hitting Vincent Volpatti had two hits, two RBI and two runs scored, and leads the team in hits (18), batting average (.409), RBI (10), and stolen bases (5). Volpatti, a leadoff hitter and shortstop, also highlighted the win over Diablo Valley on Feb. 24 with a home run and four RBI, and Mathew Barraza and Nathan White were both 3 for 5.
