5/01: Loss 4-5 @ Novato

trevorTrevor Ryan pitched the first 2 innings and left the game on his way to what looked like a solid 4-2 Giants victory.  Unfortunately “Home Field Advantage” reigned true as the Giants road woes continued and some crazy bounces went the way of the Hornets.    In a game that boasted 12 errors and was played on a field that appeared seemed to be feeling the effects of the current drought, a bright spot was Novato’s starting pitcher who tossed over 100 pitches to notch the complete-game victory.  He shut out the Giants for the last 4 innings of the game, striking out 5 and scattering 9 hits.  The Giants had fewer errors than the Hornets and out-hit Novato 9-5, but came up short in the most important category-runs.  Bright spots for the Giants were hits by Sam Roiz, Henry Zeisler, Nicolas Belgium, and Riley Moore.  Aaron Halford and Ashton Finegold added two hits apiece.  The highlight of the day was Trevor Foehr’s break-out, line-drive double that rolled up the hill in right center field and after a bumbled relay, Coach Dean Kristy waved Foehr home and he slid in safely on a close play at the plate.  The Giants will likely need to win all of their last games of the season for a shot at the title.  Their first test comes Tuesday as they face first place Drake.
