Menlo Atherton wears out 5 pitchers in 5 innings for 17-1 win
Original post made by Linda Lange on Apr 18, 2011
Lead off batter Casey Eason and his teammate Kyle Zirbes, batting 2, both reached base in each of the first 4 innings and scored for a total of 8 runs with 11 RBIs from batters in the 3,4, and 5 positions (Lange, Brewer, Falkenhagen).
Cam Winn, batting 9th hit the team's first triple of the season. Ryan Cortex pitched the first 3 innings giving up only 2 hits and 1 run handing the ball to Chace Warren who completed the remaining 2 innings with no hits or runs.
Helping out their pitchers the defense sparkled as well with Will Lyons smoothly responding to a bad hop reaching over his head to snag a ball that he flipped to second to Casey Eason who completed a slick double play.
Ryan Cortez after moving to left field made a diving catch into foul territory to foil any thoughts of a come back. The Bears have now scored 41 runs in their last 3 games giving up only 12.
