5/5: Kent Goodman had all of his pitches working on a nice afternoon at College of Marin versus Branson. On the strength of Goodman’s no-hitter, the Giants cruised to an 8-0 victory. Although Goodman’s pitching was the story of the game, Redwood’s offense was productive and efficient. The Giants tallied 11 hits. Cole McGowan had a big game with 3 hits, while Rex Solle went 2-3 with 2 RBIs.
Nick Gehrman came on in the seventh to pinch hit and blasted a single to left field. While this hit wasn’t terribly consequential to the outcome of the game, it raised Gehrman’s batting average to a lofty .500, while also pushing his on-base percentage to an eye-popping .714.
The Giants ended the MCAL regular season with a record of 17-7 overall, 12-4 in MCAL. The MCAL playoffs commence next week. The Giants (3 seed) will take on Tam (2 seed) at their place on Tuesday, May 10th at 4:30.
