No. 5 De La Salle 8, Monte Vista 5

The Spartans bounced back after a tough loss to Jesuit on Saturday by rallying from three runs down to beat league foe Monte Vista 8-5.

After De La Salle took a 2-0 in the first inning, Monte Vista put up a five-spot in the third. 

Matteo Congdon’s RBI double to left field scored Luke Claussen and Brad Ballard to cap off the Mustangs’ five-run inning and gave Monte Vista a three-run advantage. 

But it was all De La Salle after that. 

Alec Blair’s three-run homer in the fourth inning made the score 6-5. Then in the fifth, senior Joe McGee hit a two-run shot to right field that scored Max Ghiglieri, tacking on two more runs for the Spartans. 

De La Salle improved to 13-4, 7-2. Monte Vista dropped to 12-8, 4-6.

No. 9 James Logan 8, Mission San Jose 5

Mission San Jose came close to pulling off the upset and capturing its first win of the season, but the Colts held strong late to win their ninth consecutive league game. 

After the fourth inning, James Logan led 6-1 behind strong pitching from Evan Yau. The junior pitched 3 2/3 innings and struck out four on 40 pitches. 

The Warriors responded by scoring four runs in the fifth to cut the deficit to just a run. Vinhson Nguyen’s single to the gap in left field scored three runs to make the score 6-5 heading into the sixth. 

After the Colts scored a run in the bottom half of the sixth inning to give them a three-run cushion, Jesus Vasquez struck out three straight batters in the seventh inning to win the game. 

James Logan is now 15-3, 9-0. Mission San Jose dropped to 0-18.

No. 2 Granada 2, Dublin 0

The Livermore school could only muster up two runs, but that’s all it needed as pitcher Jake Sekany was brilliant on the mound.

The junior pitched a two-hitter, striking out eight in a complete-game shutout.

Junior Tommy Brown knocked in Granada’s only runs in the third inning when his single brought home Tyler Kardy and Nate Brown.

Granada improved to 20-1 while Dublin dropped to 9-12.

Oakland Tech 30, Fremont-Oakland 0 (four innings)

The Bulldogs scored 30 runs on 18 hits and cruised to its eighth league victory.

Rass Robinson went 4 for 6 and had four RBIs. Issac Estow, Vernard Scott, Elias Thompson, David Granger and Mike Martin each had three RBIs. 

Kalen Thomas threw a one-hitter and struck out seven batters for Oakland Tech, which improved to 13-6, 8-0.

Fremont is still winless at 0-8, 0-7.
