Redwood JV edges out Sacred Heart 1 – 0

2/25/23:  Jack Gurley started the game on the mound, going 5 innings with 6 Ks, no hits, and one walk.  Zach Davis took the ball in the 6th inning and closed out Sacred Heart, striking out one and giving up a single to left field, Sacred Heart’s only hit.

Sacred Heart threatened in the top of the 5th inning with a runner on 3rd base after a well placed sacrifice bunt.  A shoe string catch by center fielder TJ Beck, and Jack Gurley’s last batter faced, struck out to end the inning.

In the bottom of the 6th inning, the Giants finally broke through with Zach Davis earning a walk and scoring on a game winning single up the middle by Eric Mittleman.

The 7th inning proved suspenseful, as Sacred Heart’s leadoff batter hit a single to left field and stole second base with just one out. But the Giant’s outfield proved to be unforgiving as left fielder Carter Capobianco made another shoe string catch on the left field foul line to end the game and put Redwood Giants JV at 3 – 0 for the year.

TJ Beck, Miles Harrison (2), Cole Engstrom and Eric Mittleman all collected singles.  Jordan Kimball had one multi base hit, a double.
