3/27: 5 – 3 Win vs. Novato

michael_benzMichael Benz gets ready to take his lead after banging a double to the gap in right-center.  A perfect 70 degree day in Larkspur was tainted slightly as the Hornets and Giants combined for 9 errors in a game where Redwood was out-hit but outscored their opponent.  Novato would score all of their runs in the 3rd when they took the lead 3-1 after a few untimely errors by the Giants.   However, Redwood put additional pressure on the Hornets defense as they moved runners into scoring position by making solid contact at the plate.   Ashton Finegold laid down a perfect squeeze bunt to put the Giants in the lead for good.  Redwood pitchers shut down Novato when Trevor Ryan took the mound and pitched 3 shut out innings and notched the win as Aaron Halford closed out the game.  Nicolas Belgium had 2 of the Giants hits, while Henry Ziesler, Zach Tonnerre and Michael Benz each added to the tally.  The Giants take a MCAL record of 2-1 and season record of 8-2 into next week.
