South Pas baseball fell to a strong San Marino squad away on Friday, March 25. The 9-2 loss gives the Tigers a 0-3 record in league.
San Marino took control of the game right from the get go, scoring its first two batters with ease. The Titan advantage was quickly extended with two more runs in the second, putting them up 4-0. The game already looked bleak for South Pas.
The Tigers struggled to find any offensive momentum throughout the entire game, earning hits only five times in its entirety. In the fifth, San Marino tacked on two more runs to its lead, giving them a safe cushion.
The team displayed individual talent in the sixth with impressive hitting from its upperclassmen members. Seniors Matthew Shults and Brandon Louie hit back to back doubles, scoring one run for the Tigers. Sophomore Jackson Totleben then followed this up with a single to add another run to the Tiger tally.
The game, however, was all but finished. The Titans struck back in the bottom of the sixth with three more runs to close out the game, which ended 9-2.
“We have a great team but we need to play catch.” Junior Jacob Luevano said. “We’ve learned that from the past couple games. Our team will only get better and there’s we still have a lot of time. I’m excited to see what the rest of the season holds for us.”
The team hopes to bounce tomorrow, March 26, in its away game against Don Bosco Tech.
