Jesuit Frosh Marauders versus Vista Del Lago
Making up the first rain out of the year from Wednesday afternoon, the Jesuit Frosh Marauder baseball team played the Vista Del Lago Eagles. This is the first league game.
Jack started in left field and batted second.
At the plate, Jack was 0 for 3. He reached on an error and scored a run. In his first at-bat, Jack struck out swinging on a 1 and 2 pitch. He grounded the first pitch to the right side in his second plate appearance. The second baseman didn't handle the ball cleanly. With Jack motoring up the line, the second baseman threw the ball in the dirt and Jack was safe at first. He went to second on the throw, to third on Jared's walk and came home on Alex's walk. In his third at-bat, protecting the plate with a 1 and 2 count, Jack hit a towering fly ball into right center for an out.
In the field, Jack played four innings in left field. He had three put-outs on fly balls. Moving to deep left center to track down one of the fly balls, Jack tried to make the transfer from his glove too quickly to hold a runner at second and juggled the ball. You could everyone in the stands gasp... Jack also tracked down a line drive hit down the third base line.
In a surprise to me, there is a 10 run rule. The Marauders ended up beating the Eagles by the score of 16 to 6 in sixth innings. The Eagles were unable to get anyone out in the bottom of the sixth. I was frankly surprised at the poor quality of the Eagles pitching; I expect better pitching at the high school level. The box score is here and the score card is here.
Iwasa (3-0, ERA 3.00, 4 starts, 21.0 innings) was the winning pitcher. He threw 75 pitches, including 49 strikes and 26 balls, in six innings.
The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 8 wins and 3 losses. In league, they have 1 win and 0 losses. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Monday, April 1 against Del Campo.
