4/23: 3 – 4 Loss @ San Marin

13 may just be an unlucky number.  On Thursday the Giants 13-game win streak was snapped on the road vs. the Mustangs​.  In their first match-up of the season, San Marin led the Giants 4-2 going into the bottom of the 6th inning.  Redwood rallied for 4 runs in their home half of the 6th and notched the win on St. Patrick’s day.  The ‘Luck of the Irish’ was ended as fortunes turned today as Redwood took a 2-run lead going into the bottom of the 6th.  Zach Cohen was virtually un-hittable as he held the ‘Stangs to just 3 hits but some untimely errors and timely hits by San Marin put the Mustangs ahead 4-3 going into the top of the 7th.  With one out, Devon Pence knocked a base-hit, and Riley Overend kept the rally alive with a hit.  It looked like the Giants could answer with Adam Hussain at the plate, runners in scoring position and one out.  Parker Laret who already had a double on the day, stood in the on deck circle.  Hussain who had the game-winning RBI in their first match-up, barreled a shot and it looked like he would again be a hero, but San Marin’s 2nd baseman made a diving grab of the liner and completed the double-play.  Game over, streak ended.  The Giants bats stayed hot as they out-hit the Mustangs 10-3.  Devon Pence lead all Redwood hitters with 3 hits and an RBI, Overend added 2 with a double, Parker Laret added a double, Hussain had a single with an RBI, and Eric Doctor had an RBI single.  Aaron Dorfler and Zach Kopstein also had hits for the Giants.  Redwood defends their home unbeaten streak as they host Branson on Friday.
