Redwood JV Stands Tall in Home Opener

3/23:  After more than one year of MCAL competition, the Redwood Junior Varsity Giants opened the season at home with a commanding 19-2 victory over San Marin today at Endriss Field.  The season opener that could be considered unusual to players as they, coaches and umpires wore masks, was equally unusual to fans as they socially distanced while following ‘COVID Protocols’ in the stands.

Despite the abnormality of the ‘New Normal’, the Giants represented Redwood Baseball between the lines from the jump as starting pitcher Max Funk needed only ten pitches in the first inning to send the game to the bottom of the first.  Merritt Brinckerhoff took one for the team for a hit by pitcher to start the Giants offense.  After stealing second, Merritt would score on a grounder hit by Nick Scott that the third baseman airmailed over the first baseman’s head.  Rory Minty sent Scott to third on a grounder to the right side and Ben Resnick tallied his first RBI of the season on a deep fly to center, putting the Giants up 2-0 after one inning.

Funk was again effective in the second and third, putting up a zeros for San Marin.  In the bottom of the third after a few errors and a single by Danil Wells to load the bases, pinch runner Ezekial Stone scored on a walk to Jasper Nadel to put the Giants up 3-0.  With the bases loaded, Bodhi Bartle sent a 1-2 pitch deep over the centerfield wall for a grand slam, creating a commanding 7-0 lead for the Giants after three innings of play.

The Giants would continue their onslaught, tallying thirteen hits with only one error in the field while striking out only four times at the plate.  San Marin helped the Giants efforts with seven errors in the field.  Offensively, Nick Scott added a homer, Funk helped his own cause with a double, Minty had a double and a triple, and Sam Sumski ripped a double as well.  Brinckerhoff, Resnick, Wyatt Turkington, and Harrison Lapic also had singles, and Wells had two hits on the day.  Bartle was the RBI leader with four, and Resnsick and Scott scored three times each for the Giants.

Funk earned the win, pitching five complete innings, walking one and giving up one run.  Jasper Nadel pitched the last two innings, giving up one run while striking out two and walking none.

The Giants are on the road on Friday at San Marin at 4:30.

Redwood JV Ends Preseason Undefeated

3/03/20:  Vintage and Redwood were both undefeated coming into this game and Redwood ran away with a 5-1 victory.Miles Kawashima was amazing on the mound, pitching a complete game, striking out three while only allowing four hits and a run.

He was backed up by his fielders who made some great plays, the most outstanding being Brian Sternberger laying out to knock down a grounder and throwing the hitter out at first.  Colin Cuneen made some great picks at first and Nick Scott and Tyler Blair made all the plays in the outfield.  While Will Davis, Dylan Jensen, Brian Sternberger, and Colin Cuneen kept the infield tight, Connor Yang was behind the plate and didn’t allow a single stolen base.

The offense was very strong led by Will Davis who went 3-3 and Zack Johnson who went 2-3 scoring twice with 1 RBI.  Connor Yang smoked a double near the left field wall in the first to score Zack Johnson who got on base with a single and moved on to second with a sac fly by Nick Scott.  Redwood took the lead in the second by scoring four runs.

JV Giants Shut Out Terra Linda, San Rafael and Marin Catholic to Claim Share of MCAL Title

4/26: The JV Giants defeated Terra Linda at Moody Field on Tuesday by a score of 4-0 to run the record to 10-2 in MCAL play (14-6 overall).

Charlie Ginsburg took the start on the mound for the Giants and was sharp throughout, throwing a fastball, slider and curve for strikes and keeping TL’s hitters off balance. Ginsburg went 6 and 2/3 innings, yielding just three hits and striking out six against a single base on balls.

The Giants plated two in the bottom of the second one run scoring singles by Ethan Crawford and Thomas Johnson. The Giants added single runs in fifth (Luca Bove sac fly) and sixth (Sam Rice triple followed by Charlie Welch infield single to score Rice).

Rice led the Giants in hits and runs scored on the day with two of each.

**************************

4/30: The JV Giants discovered that baseball under the lights agrees with them, as they rolled San Rafael by a count of 10-0 in their first night contest of the year at Albert Park. With the victory, the Giants improved their record to 11-2 in MCALs (15-6 overall).

Tommy Quanstrom started for the Giants and fought through some command issues to shut out San Rafael over 5 and 2/3 innings. Charlie Ginsburg struck out three in his 1 and 1/3 innings to wrap it up.

The Giants opened this one up with a five-run third inning, highlighted by RBI singles from Isaak Irmini-Kreft and Mikey Bender and an RBI double from Luca Bove.

The Giants got two hits apiece from Ginsburg, Sam Rice and Bender to lead the team. Bove and Charlie Welch paced the team with two RBIs each.

**************************

5/2: In their final game of the season, and with a share of the MCAL regular season title on the line, the JV Giants defeated Marin Catholic 4-0 on a combined no-hitter by Mikey Bender and Charlie Ginsburg.

In a rematch from earlier this year, Bender started on the mound for the Giants, with MC countering with lefty Riley Schon. Bender looked sharp early, overpowering MC with his fastball and mixing in some nice breaking pitches as well.

Redwood loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the second on walks to Bender, Luca Bove and Ethan Crawford. Charlie Welch made it hurt with a well placed pop fly down the right field line that dropped in for a two-RBI single.

The Giants added on in the fifth. Ginsburg led off the inning with an infield single to third and then stole second. Isaak Irmini-Kreft followed with a sacrifice bunt so well placed that he beat it out for a single. After Irmini-Kreft stole second, Sam Rice scorched a liner to right to score Ginsburg and Irmini-Kreft.

Bender, who had been on cruise control through the first five innings, ran into some trouble in the sixth. After an error and two walks, MC had the bases loaded with one out and the top of the order coming up. With Bender approaching his pitch count limit, Ginsburg came into the game and put out the fire by inducing a shallow pop fly to center and a swinging strikeout on a sweeping curveball in the dirt. Ginsburg closed it out in the seventh – final score 4-0 Giants.

Rice led the Giants in hits and RBIs on the day with two of each. With the win, the Giants finished the season 12-2 in MCALs (16-6 overall), good for a tie and MCAL co-championship with MC.

Congrats to the JV Giants and coaches Jim Brown, Chris Corsiglia, Tim Amyx and J.D. Pomilia on a terrific season.

JV Giants Top Drake

4/23:  Fresh off wins over Novato (13-3) and Casa Grande (7-2), the JV Giants headed to toasty San Anselmo looking to defeat Drake and stay in the hunt for first place in MCALs.  The Giants did just that, defeating Drake 9-4 and running their record to 13-5 on the season (9-2 in MCAL play).

Mikey Bender took the start on the mound for the Giants, and he was staked to a big lead early.  Charlie Ginsburg led off the game with a walk, and after stealing second and third, was driven home on an RBI groundout by Tommy Quanstrom.  The Giants struck for four runs in the second, highlighted by a two-RBI double by Asher Jacobs, whose long drive to left-center missed a home run over Drake’s short fence by only ten feet or so.  Thomas Johnson followed with another two-RBI double, and the Giants led 5-0 after two innings.  Not to be left out, Isaak Irmini-Kreft added a two-RBI double of his own in the top of the fourth.

Bender, who had been on cruise control for the first four innings, ran into trouble in the bottom of the fifth and gave up four runs, due largely to a spate of hit batsmen and a questionable call from the home plate umpire that turned a line drive down the left field line that appeared to land foul into a fair ball and a two-run double.  When Bender reached his pitch limit, Ginsburg relieved him on the mound and limited the damage by recording the last two outs of bottom of the fifth, and after five full it was 7-4 Giants.

The Giants came through with a couple of insurance runs in the top of the seventh, although it was hardly necessary, as Ginsburg dispatched the Drake hitters with relative ease over his eight outs and closed out a 9-4 Giants win.

Johnson led the Giants in base hits on the day with three, and Ginsburg, Sam Rice and Ethan Crawford added two apiece.  Johnson also led in RBI with three, with Irmini-Kreft and Jacobs totaling two each.  Ginsburg, Sam McIntosh and Jacobs each scored two runs.

The JV Giants will look to finish the week strong when they host Terra Linda on Friday (first pitch 4:30 PM) and Dublin on Saturday (first pitch 2:00 PM).

JV Giants Defeat Tam; Bender Throws Shutout

4/17:  Coming off of three narrow contests in a row (3-2 win over San Rafael, 6-5 loss to Monte Vista, 4-3 win over Terra Linda), the JV Giants came into Wednesday’s game against Tamalpais looking to avoid another nailbiter.  Thanks in large part to a dominant effort from Mikey Bender on the mound, they were able to do just that, defeating Tam by a score of 4-0.  With the win, the Giants ran their record to 10-5 (7-2 in MCALs).

Bender was in total command from the first pitch, although that first pitch was a doozy, in that it got by catcher Ethan Crawford and hit the home plate umpire squarely in his left hand, ending his day and rendering the base umpire a soloist for the afternoon.

In a rarity of late, the Giants put runs on the board early in this one. Charlie Ginsburg led off the bottom of the first with a walk.  After stealing second, Ginsburg advanced to third on an infield single by Isaak Irmini-Kreft.  Irmini-Kreft then also stole second, and Tommy Quanstrom drove them both home with a single to left.  Three batters into the game the Giants led 2-0.

The Giants tacked on with single runs in the second and fourth innings.  A pair of errors by Tam’s first baseman led to a Giants run in the second, and Thomas Johnson drove in Asher Jacobs with a double to left-center in the fourth.

Four runs was more than enough for Bender, who went the distance, yielding only two hits and striking out ten against a single walk.  Bender threw only 84 pitches in the game (56 for strikes), and Tam never got a runner past second base.

For their next two games, the JV Giants travel to Novato on Thursday (first pitch 4:30 PM) and Casa Grande on Saturday (first pitch 2:30 PM).

JV Giants Offensive Hibernation Continues in Loss to San Marin

4/4: Baseball experts will tell you it’s tough to win if you don’t score, and that was the case for the JV Giants, who lost 1-0 to San Marin on an overcast day in Novato.  With the loss the Giants record falls to 4-2 in MCAL play and 7-4 overall.

Sam Rice started on the mound for the Giants, and even though he was feeling under the weather he delivered with three innings of shutout ball on no hits allowed.

Tristan Schwartz started for San Marin, and although the Giants threatened on a few occasions, they were unable to break through with the timely two-out hit needed to score. Schwartz went six and two-thirds innings, striking out five without a walk.

Isaak Irmini-Kreft relieved Rice in the bottom of the fourth and also pitched well. Rice and Irmini-Kreft were supported by stellar outfield defense from Asher Jacobs in left and Thomas Johnson in center, who both covered lots of ground to take away potential extra base hits by the Mustangs.  Rice did the same after leaving the mound and taking over in right field.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Mustangs were threatening with pinch-runner Xander Kane-D’Amico on second and two down. San Marin shortstop Zack Chilson lined a single to left, and with two outs in a scoreless game San Marin’s third base coach opted for aggression and sent Kane-D’Amico home.  Jacobs charged the ball hard and unleashed a perfect throw to catcher Ethan Crawford at home plate and Kane-D’Amico was out by ten feet to preserve the scoreless tie.

After the Giants went down in order in the top of the sixth, the Mustangs finally broke through for a run in the bottom half, with Chase McAndrew driving in Schwartz from second with a line drive single to left, and heading into the Giants’ final at-bat it was 1-0 San Marin.

Hope sprung eternal in the top of the seventh when Sam McIntosh led off with one of his patented hit by pitch plate appearances. But McIntosh never got any further than first base as the Giants went down in order from there to end it.

It’s a good time for Spring Break, and hopefully the Giants bats, whose vacation started a little too early, can bounce back when they face San Rafael on Friday, April 12. First pitch is at 4:30 PM at Moody Field.

JV Giants Suffer First MCAL Defeat

4/2:  After splitting two tight non-conference games against Cardinal Newman (5-4 loss) and Petaluma (3-2 win), on a drizzly day in Kentfield the JV Giants were unable to maintain their undefeated status in MCAL play, losing by a count of 5-1 to Marin Catholic.

Lefty Riley Schon started on the mound for MC and held the Giants to one run and a single hit over five and a third innings.

Mikey Bender got the start on the mound for the Giants and competed hard in less than ideal weather conditions, surrendering five runs (three earned) over four plus innings.  MC broke open a 2-1 game with three runs in the bottom of the fifth without generating a single base hit, aided by bases on balls, hit batsmen and some suboptimal defense from the Giants.

The Giants bats were quiet for most of the game, mustering only two hits total.  MC’s defense also turned in several outstanding defensive plays to keep the Giants offense down.  Tommy Quanstrom drove in the Giants sole run with an RBI double.

The Giants record now stands at 4-1 in MCAL play and 7-3 overall.  The Giants will look to shake this one off and wake up the bats at San Marin on Thursday.  First pitch at 4:30 PM.

JV Giants Late Inning Comeback Topples Drake

3/19: Having been stymied on offense for most of the game, the JV Giants mounted a two-run sixth inning rally to take a 3-2 victory over a game Drake squad at Moody Field on Tuesday. The Giants record for the season now stands at 6-1 (4-0 in MCAL play).

Mikey Bender got the start on the mound for the Giants and was effective again, going 5 and 2/3 innings and giving up only two runs (one earned) while striking out six.

Meanwhile, the Giants were unable to get much of anything going offensively against Drake lefty starter Emery Huebner. Huebner was featuring a submarine-style delivery and a two-seam fastball that while not much to write home about velocity-wise, had some screwball movement running away from the Giants righty hitters that had them consistently off-balance and making weak contact. Through five and a half innings, Drake was on top 2-1 and things were not looking great for Redwood.

But the Giants would turn things around in the bottom of the sixth. Asher Jacobs led off with a hard ground ball that was too hot to handle for the Drake third baseman. Jacobs advanced to second on a ground out by Thomas Johnson. Charlie Ginsburg followed with a bloop to center that fell in for a hit, but Jacobs, initially fearing the ball would be caught, was unable to advance.

That looked like it might hurt when Ethan Crawford followed with a fly out to center field that would have been deep enough to score Jacobs from third and tie the game had he been there, but as things stood the Giants had runners on first and second with two outs. Bender followed with another hot grounder that ate up Drake’s third baseman and the bases were loaded.

Sam Rice picked a good time for the hardest hit ball of the game for the Giants, as he drilled a line drive single to right to plate Jacobs and Ginsburg and put the Giants ahead 3-2.

Rice, who had relieved Bender in the top of the sixth, remained in to try to close out the game in the top of the seventh. Drake’s second baseman Sam Heimerdinger had other ideas, however, as he lined a one-out double down the left field line.

But Sam McIntosh came to the rescue with the defensive play of the game. With Heimerdinger stealing on the pitch, Rice uncorked a scud that bounced a foot in front of the plate. McIntosh not only blocked the pitch, but fielded it cleanly, popped to his feet quickly and threw a strike to third to nab Heimerdinger and snuff out the Drake rally. Rice ended it shortly thereafter with a strikeout – final score 3-2 Giants.

The Giants have plenty of time to regroup from this nailbiter of a game as they don’t play again until next Tuesday, March 26 against Terra Linda. First pitch 4:30 pm at Moody Field.

JV Giants Sweep Novato Schools

3/13:  The JV Giants hung on for a 6-4 victory over San Marin at Endriss Field.

Sam Rice took the starting assignment on the mound versus the Mustangs of San Marin and pitched four strong innings, striking out five.  The left-hander also displayed a deceptive pickoff move, which he utilized to pickoff three San Marin baserunners.

After scoring an unearned run in the bottom of the first, the Giants scored twice in each of the third and fourth innings, highlighted by an RBI single from Ethan Crawford and through four the Giants led 5-1.

San Marin rallied in the top of the fifth off of reliever Charlie Ginsburg, who battled through command issues and some shaky defense behind him to limit the Mustangs to three runs, stranding the tying and go ahead runs on first and third to end the inning.

The Giants scored an important insurance run in the bottom half on consecutive two-out doubles by Tommy Quanstrom and Rice, and Ginsburg went the rest of the way to close out a 6-4 win.

The Giants were led in hits on the day by Rice with two and in runs scored by Ginsburg with three.

*****************

3/15:  On a sunny and warm Friday afternoon at Moody Field, the Giants rolled to a 15-0 win over an overmatched Novato squad.

Tommy Quantsrom got the start on the mound and was extremely sharp, striking out ten Novato batters over four innings of shutout ball.

This one was over quickly, as the Giants tallied nine runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back.  Mikey Bender led the hit parade with three hits and five RBIs, Charlie Ginsburg took the team high in runs scored for the game with three and Sam McIntosh padded his season’s lead in getting hit by pitches by wearing it twice.

Thomas Johnson relieved Quanstrom in the top of the fifth to close out the game, which ended by mercy rule after the top of the fifth.

Next up for the Giants is Drake on Tuesday, March 19.  First pitch 4:30 PM at Moody Field.

Bender, JV Giants Cruise Past Tam in MCAL Opener

3/12:  Following a rain-shortened non-conference schedule that saw them go 2-1, the JV Giants opened up MCAL play in strong fashion with an 8-0 road victory over Tamalpais to run their record to 3-1.

Mikey Bender started on the mound for the Giants and overpowered the Tam hitters, striking out seven over 5 1/3 innings.  Bender also managed to pick two Tam runners off of first base in his stint on the mound.

After four scoreless innings, the Giants put up crooked numbers in the fifth and sixth innings.  A four-run fifth inning was highlighted by RBI singles from Sam Rice and Thomas Johnson, and the Giants added three more in the sixth inning on a two-RBI double by Charlie Ginsburg and an RBI single from Parker McMillan.  Isaak Irmini-Kreft drove in Jack Bober with an RBI single in the top of the seventh for the Giants’ final run.

Ginsburg closed the game for the Giants with three strikeouts in 1 2/3 innings on the bump.

Tommy Quanstrom, Irmini-Kreft and Rice led the Giants in hits on the day with two apiece.

Quick turnaround for the Giants as they play at home against San Marin on Wednesday, March 13 in the makeup of a previously rained out contest.  Game is at 4:30 at Endriss Field.

JV Sweep, Clinch MCAL Championship!

The Giants played three games in five days, travelled to Napa, and came home to face cross-town rival, Marin Catholic, to secure the 2017 MCAL Pennant for Redwood High School by beating Tamalpais, Justin-Siena and MC.

In Napa, the boys rolled on offense, combining for twelve hits, scoring ten runs in a 10-4 victory. Offensively, Jack Morken hit two triples and a double, scored three runs and knocked in two RBI’s for the Giants. Jake Nordstrom had two hits, two RBI’s and a run. Sam Warren had two hits and two RBI’s. Ryan Jessen contributed two hits and an RBI. Nate Charles, Nick Cook and Cole Zesiger added to the hit parade with one hit each. Defensively, against the Padres, Redwood’s infield was the real deal, preventing runs with outstanding play from Robbie Wilson, Zack Gordon, Haiden Jones, Nick Cook and Ryan Jessen. Maxim Kawashima, Jackson Bender and Jeremy Sellier pitched for the Giants, giving up just six hits. But the victory in Napa was just the second to last stop before the boys could secure the MCAL Championship. They had to face Marin Catholic on their home turf.

Friday night, Cinco De Mayo, Redwood squared off against the Wildcats for what essentially was the league championship. The Big Game is always tense, and this contest would not disappoint the large crowd. In the first, Jacob Klionsky singled to center. Jake Nordstrom would reach first base on catcher’s interference. Sam Warren connected with a single to left, loading the bases. Jack Morken drove the ball to third base, giving the defender the choice, and preventing the run. Jack Hake then stepped up and drove the ball to left, scoring Nordstrom and Warren (2-0, Redwood). With Morken at second, Nick Cook drove the ball to center, advancing Morken to third and Hake to second. Next, centerfielder, Jarod Robinow, laid down a bunt, scoring Morken from third to end the inning (3-0, Redwood).

MC would respond. A nice double play from Gordon to Cook to Morken gave the Giants some confidence. A three-run homerun took it away, notching the contest at three a-piece.

With the game tied, head coach, Billy Jack Ryan, made his move and handed the ball to sophomore Ace-Kyle Felder. In the end, that is all it would take. Felder was brilliant, going 6.2 innings, striking out 12 batters, conceding only three hits and one run. Felder helped his cause with two hits of his own. The Giants backed him up in the third inning, scoring three runs off hits from Jack Morken, Jarod Robinow and Robbie Wilson-who drove in two runs with a single to center (6-3, Redwood, after three).

MC picked up a run in the fifth inning, keeping the contest close at 6-4 with two innings to play. Nonetheless, Felder would clamp down on his opponents, keeping the boys in blue off the board. The Giants speedy center fielder, Jarod Robinow, would pad Redwood’s lead in the seventh by stealing home. With a three run lead, coach Ryan left the ball in Felder’s dominant hand, striking out the final batter looking. Final Score: 7-4, Giants.

With a current 2017 season record of 20 and 2, Redwood has earned and proven that they are the team to beat in the Bay Area, if not the State. With wins over Serra, Bishop O’Dowd, Casa Grande and Marin Catholic (twice), they are the very best at the JV level. The Giants conclude their season next Tuesday, May 9th, versus Drake High School. It is with great pleasure and satisfaction that I sign off giving you the scoop on 2017’s MCAL Baseball Champions-The Giants!
