FREMONT Nat Hamby was near perfect for the Cabrillo College baseball team on Saturday afternoon after pitching a complete game 4-1 win over Ohlone College.

Hamby improved his record to 8-2 this season after only giving up one run -- none earned -- and struck out 10 batters, giving him 91 strikeouts for the Seahawks this season.

I just go up and I know I have seven guys behind me that are going to field the ball, Hamby said. I know I have a catcher whos going to help me out with my pitches. I know that everything is going to go the way it should, Ive been doing this all year. Its confidence, thats all it is.

Caleb Fidiam went 0-for-4 but contributed two RBIs on two sacrifice fly-outs and Nazereth Thibodeaux hit his first home run of the year, which gave the Seahawks an insurance run in the seventh inning for the conference clinching victory.

Nats been the best pitcher in Northern California this year, said Head Coach Bob Kittle. Weve been doing well as our guys have been executing offensively. We did that today and thats what won the game.

With the win, Cabrillo clinched at least a share of the Coast Conference title and won back-to-back conference titles for the third time in school history.

It also got them into the first round of the California Community College Baseball Playoffs for the 4th consecutive year, a first in school history.
