Santa Monica managed only two hits and once again could not get past the first round as they lost at home to Knight 8-3, knocking them out of the Division 3 playoffs.
Despite struggling at the plate, the Vikings took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth when Mason Landis scored from third on a wild pitch.
That advanted was short lived when Knight grabbed four runs in the top half of the fifth led by an Edgar Cabral homerun and two more runs in each of the final two innings.
Santa Monica (20-11) has not advance to the second round since the 2008-2009 season.

Brentwood junior guard Tra Holder has been offered a scholarship by Arizona State, he announced on twitter today. He averaged 23 points and five assists this season as the Eagles advance to the CIF-SS 4A title game.
No. 1 seed Pacific Hills made two late free throws in the final seconds for a 52-51 victory over Cantwell-Sacred Heart and Leland King scored 14 points to lead No. 2 seed Brentwood to an 54-46 win over Santa Maria St. Joseph setting up an Alpha League matchup in the Division 4A finals.
It should not come as any surprise as both Pacific Hills and Brentwood have been ranked in the state top 20 by multiple media outlets throughout the year and finished in a three-way tie along with Windward for the Alpha League title.
The game will be the rubber match as the teams split the season series. Pacific Hills won 75-71 at Pilibos High School on January 16th and Brentwood avenged the loss by taking the rematch at home 81-71 on January 28th.
It was no surprise that Windward had little trouble in their opening round game against Costa Mesa, but the Wildcats crossed the triple-digit mark in a 100-21 to begin the Division 4AA playoffs.
Jordin Canada nearly had a triple-double with 26 points, nine steals and eight assists. Courtney Jaco also scored 26 along with eight rebounds and Kristen Simon had 17 points and 11 rebounds as top seeded Windward was never challenged in the game.
St. Monica’s second-half defense gets them past St. Matthias
St. Monica shut out St. Matthias for the first 11 minutes of the second half in a 52-18 blowout victory in the Division 4A opening round.
When Will Rosenthal’s three-pointer late in the second quarter gave Malibu a one-point lead, it seemed that No. 2 seed Brentwood could be sent home in a major upset in the opening round of the Division 4A playoffs.
Then the Eagles woke up from the shock with a late first half run and a dominating third quarter on their way to a 72-45 victory.
Brentwood defense got back to basics by shutting down the Malibu after halftime by allowing only a single basket in the third quarter.
Junior guard Tra Holder had eight points during that span most of it coming from transition baskets and offensive rebounds and Leland King scored 20 of his game-high 26 points in the second half as the Eagles pushed a five-point halftime advantage into a runaway lead.
