3/11: On a beautiful Friday afternoon in San Rafael, the Varsity Giants took on Terra Linda for the second and final game in their 2-game series. The contest was tight prior to the first with the teams locked in a scoreless tie. The game appeared to hang in the balance until Redwood broke it open in the top of the first with 2 quick runs, followed by another 5 runs in the second. In the end, the Giants cruised to a 15-0 victory.
Kent Goodman started on the mound for the Giants, overmatching most of the TL hitters. Goodman gave up 3 hits and struck out 8 over 4 innings. Rex Solle pitched the final 3 innings and was even more dominant, dealing consistent heat that the TL batters simply couldn’t catch up to. Solle didn’t give up any hits, striking out all 9 batters he faced. On offense, the Giants had 19 hits, including a 3-hit game by Danil Wells.
While it was exciting to see the Giants pitch and hit so well, I kept thinking that this 2-game series provided a strong argument for some sort of MCAL realignment.
The Giants’ record now stands at 7-2 overall, 4-0 in MCAL.
