We registered another successful weekend by beating Patten 10-8 on Saturday. We were scheduled for a doubleheader, but we tried to wait out the rain unsuccessfully for the second game on Saturday.
In the game we did get in, a total team effort led to another comeback victory. Paul Brock started on the mound and pitched 3 2/3 innings. He was relieved with great work by Mike Wilson, David Holland (getting his first win of the season, and Scott Tully. Jake Paolinetti pitched a scoreless ninth inning to register his first collegiate Save.
On offense, we broke out for 13 hits. Jared DeCastro led the way with a 3 hit morning, and the bottom of the order combo of Tommy George, Tyler Soto, and Tyler Young combined for 7 RBI’s.
We open up conference play this week at home against National Runner-up UC San Diego. The Tritons are currently ranked #2 in the nation and sport a 10-2 record. Our boys are ready for the challenge that this weekend and the CCAA schedule represents. Game time Friday is 2:00pm and we look forward to seeing all of our Otter Faithful out there all weekend to support the boys. Go Otters!!
