After a long lay-off the Giants came out strong as they plated 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning in the “Battle of the Un-Beatuns” on the road in Kentfield. However, Redwood would not score for 5 innings and the Wildcats scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 2nd, and 2 more in the bottom of the third. Oliver Pearson pitched 2 scoreless innings yielding only 1 hit while Cale Tippett continued his dominance of Wildcat hitters, pitching a scoreless inning. The Giants ‘Never Say Die’ approach sparked a rally in the 7th but it was cut short after scoring 1 run. Redwood committed 4 errors in their non-conference game more than a week prior and reversed their fortune as they were flawless in the field. Dane Goodman, Josh Cohen, Mackie Skall, Jake Kristy and Andreas
Gleckman all had hits for the Giants. Gleckman (photo left) is probably one of the nicest, most polite kids you might ever meet. However, when it comes to opposing pitching, he is quite disrespectful as he has pounded 18 hits this year. Affectionately known as ‘Dre’ to his teammates, he has earned their respect and the respect of his coaches. One would also expect that he has earned the respect of the league if opposing coaches are doing their ‘due diligence’ by checking stats on MaxPreps. If Redwood High School handed out PHD’s, ‘Dre’ would be well on his way to earning his ‘Doctorate in Hitting’ as he is leading the entire Redwood Baseball Program with a .529 batting average and is in the ‘Top 5’ with 12 runs scored. He has had a hit in all but one game this season, and leads the Giants in multiple-hit games. ‘Dr. Dre’ and the Giants (3-1) take on the San Marin Mustangs (3-2) in a conference game on Wednesday at Endriss.
