CSM Baseball swept the week’s two-game series with the Colts and stayed undefeated in Coast North Conference play with a 5-0 record. CSM Softball is riding an 12-game winning streak, with a 22-2 overall record.

The Coast Conference North women’s basketball race is in a virtual four-way knot among one-loss teams after two weeks of play. State No. 12 ranked Skyline College and Chabot College are 3-1, while No. 9 College of San Mateo and No. 13 City College of San Francisco are 2-1.

San Mateo County community college basketball teams haven’t had a ton of playoff experiences over the last 20 years. But the last two years has seen a renaissance of sorts. Last year, the Cañada men’s team made a run to the Northern California semifinals and this season, both the College of San Mateo men and the Skyline women are in position to make the postseason. “I just want to the ability to play our best basketball in February and March,” said CSM head coach Mike Marcial, who has led the Bulldogs into the playoff race in the program’s first year back after a 36-year hiatus.

Miles Mastrobuoni is really cooking. And so are his Montgomery Biscuits. A shortstop at College of San Mateo from 2014-15, Mastrobuoni — a Livermore native out of Granada High School — has settled into a utility role in his fourth year of professional baseball. A 14th round pick of the Tampa Bay Rays out of University of Nevada-Reno in 2016, he has steadily climbed the minor league ladder.

The Bulldogs almost let their season slip away. Then came the kind of emotional victory that can define a team of destiny. No. 7-seed College of San Mateo (30-12 overall) rallied for four runs in its last at-bat for an 11-10 win over Sierra College in the winner-take-all Game 3 of a best-of-three opening playoff series Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

The College of San Mateo baseball and softball teams were two of the hottest teams down the stretch to end the regular season. CSM baseball (28-11) ended the regular season with an 11-game winning streak, tacking on a 3-2 win over Monterey Peninsula last Saturday in a game postponed from February. This was two days after clinching the Coast Golden Gate Conference with a come-from-behind, 11-8 win over Mission. The Lady Bulldogs (37-2) were an absolutely juggernaut this season, as their winning streak was nearly three times as long as the baseball team’s. The CSM softball team embarked on a 32-game winning streak following a 5-3 loss to Sierra Feb. 18.

A little less than a month ago, the College of San Mateo baseball team was scuffling, having dropped four of five. A 19-4 loss to Mission College April 2 was the low point — but it also happened be the turning point for the Bulldogs’ season.

Karalius joined the Bulldogs’ rotation by firing the first no-hitter for a CSM pitcher in at least a quarter century in a 10-0 win over De Anza at Bulldog Stadium.

Sean Prozell has been nails through his first two starts of 2019. And while the College of San Mateo sophomore has yet to record a decision, he was much happier about the outcome the second time around.

The league-leading College of San Mateo softball and baseball teams extended their win streaks this week.
