3/15: No one expected this game to be close, and it wasn’t. The Giants dominated an under-manned San Rafael program in a 10-0 rout. Rory Minty pitched another gem for the Giants, surrendering no runs on 7 hits, with 5 strike outs. Minty also didn’t walk any batters over six solid innings. Rex Solle came in to the close the game and it was clear that the SR hitters were overmatched. Solle struck out 2 of the 3 batters he faced and didn’t give up any hits.
On offense, the Giants tallied 11 hits including 2 hits each by Rory Coghlan, Kai Christman, Matty Jessen, and Merritt Brinckerhoff. Brinckerhoff also knocked in 4 runs. Charlie Welch, Cole McGowan, and Luca Bove each had one hit for the Giants. It is also notable no Giants hitters struck out in the game.
With the win, Redwood improves to 8-2 overall, 5-0 in MCAL. These two teams will meet again on Friday in SR.
