5/14: JV Takes 2nd Win vs. Marin Catholic 2-1

Aaron Halford registered his first complete game victory from the bump, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits against the Wildcats on Thursday. With his nasty curve-ball working, he was able to strike out 7 while throwing an efficient 88 pitches. Solid defense from both sides kept the game scoreless until the bottom of the 5th when Sam Roiz led off the inning with a hard grounder to short, reaching 1st on an error. Zach Tonnerre singled to right on a 0-2 curve ball, advancing Roiz into scoring position. Coach Dean Kristy called upon the speedy Henry Tantum to run at 1st, setting the Giants up with their 2 fastest runners on 1st and 2nd. Gregory Block ripped a single to right, scoring Sam and advancing Henry to 3rd. Trevor Foehr hit a hard ground ball to short, scoring Tantum for what would be the winning run. In the top of the 6th the Wildcat’s led off the inning with a single. However, Halford dimmed the lights as he grabbed a liner back to the box and doubled off the runner at 1st. Riley Marsh closed out the inning, making a play on a hard grounder to short. Halford tried to help his own cause, ripping a double to center in the bottom of the 6th, but the Giants left him stranded in scoring position. Marin Catholic fought back in the top of the 7th, scoring a run but left the tying run on 1st with 2 outs when Nicolas Belgium fielded a grounder to 2nd and made the game ending play. The JV ended the season with a 18-5 record and beat their cross-town rival in both of their match-ups this year.
