It was a tough loss as the South Pas baseball team went home after its 11-0 defeat against Monrovia High School last Friday.
The Tigers went into the game, determined to start out the season strong. However wasn’t the case as the team was plagued with inconsistent defense and offense. The few times the Tigers were in scoring position, the Wildcat defense proved too strong. South Pas made multiple attempts to score with junior Brandon Louie making it to second base in the second inning.
“They just executed better than us. We were lacking in the fundamentals but we will work hard in the next couple of days to get back on track,” senior Justin Ninomiya said.
The Tigers were still unable to make any headway in offense, making it to third base only once, with senior Brandon Aguirre 90 feet from home in the seventh inning before being stopped short.
In the end the Wildcats home field advantage proved decisive in the game.
The team hopes to jump back in their second league matchup against San Marino High School at home on Wednesday, March 25 at 3:30 p.m.
“We were very sloppy this game but I have full confidence in my boys that we will clean it up and bounce back to play San Marino,” Ninomiya added.
