Jesuit Frosh Baseball versus Vista Del Lago

The Jesuit Frosh Marauders baseball team played their 18th game of the season against the Vista Del Lago Eagles. They beat Vista Del Lago by the score of 16 to 6 on March 22.

Jack didn't start. He entered the game in the fifth inning and played centerfield.

Jack got one at-bat. He hit a 2 and 1 pitch into the hole on the left side. Hustling up the line, he beat the throw by more than a step and a half. The umpire called him out!?! With Jack struggling at the plate over the last couple of games, this put me into a black mood; he needs something to get him jump started.

At the time, Jesuit was winning by the score of 16 to 1. Four of the last five games, Jesuit has ten runned the other team. One of the things that we have been seeing in the games where the other team is getting blown out is that the umpire starts to make some questionable calls. They will create an absurdly large strike zone and give the other team any close plays, but I have never seen a call where the player was safe by a large margin and he was called out. Talking to a large group of the parents on Saturday, Jared's dad suggested that I give him the hit.

In the field, Jack played an inning in centerfield. He didn't have a put-out or an assist.

The Jesuit Marauders scored 14 runs in the third inning and cruised to a 16 to 1 win in five innings. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.

Chiappe (4 - 0, ERA 2.15, 5 starts) was the winning pitcher.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 14 wins and 4 losses. In league, they have 7 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Saturday, May 20 at St Mary's in Stockton. They beat St Mary's twice already this season.
