PRE-GAME MENTAL FOCUS - A COLLECTION OF PHOTOS

The following photos show the range of emotion happening pre-game on Thursday.  Having been around the team a little bit this year, there was a noticeable difference that the pressure of a playoff game and venue such as UOP brings to the mental state of a player.

CARDIAC KIDS SURVIVE IN 6-5 EXTRA INNING GAME

Josh Alvarado Scores From 1st To Tie The Game in The 7th
CIF-SJS Div I South  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 R H E
El Capitan Gauchos #9 1 0 3 0 5 7 1
Tracy Bulldogs #1 2 1 0 0 0 2 6 7 3

In the most stressful game of the year, the Bulldogs put themselves in a tight spot with little room for error as they were two outs away from elimination in the 7th inning.  With a little assistance from El Capitan, Tracy fought back to tie it in the 7th and then win it in the 8th to advance into next week with a little more breathing room and double elimination.

Cody Bolton got the start on Thursday evening and found himself in the stretch very early as he realized a tight strikezone was going to be in play for the rest of the evening.  After giving up 1 run, Tracy came right back to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the inning as Josh Alvarado singled on the first pitch.  Nate George walked, Chandlyr Metal walked, and then Lee Brewer hit a towering fly ball to left to score Alvarado.  After a Drew Tavares fly out, Clayton Borges singled to score George.

Tracy had an excellent opportunity to inflict serious pain on El Capitan in the bottom of the 2nd but could only muster one run with the bases loaded.

The Gauchos shook Tracy a bit in the 3rd as they placed three runs on the board with four hits in the inning.  Tracy, trailing 4-3, could not respond for several innings as their offense stalled after the 2nd inning.

Coach Crivello made a pitching change to start the 6th and went with Matt Nunes who had an efficient final three innings to keep the game close for Tracy to strike back.

With 1 out in the 7th and the Bulldogs beginning to stare at possible elimination, Josh Alvarado singled.  Nate George proceeded to hit a deep fly ball to left field which the El Capitan outfielder spun into position late to make a catch, but the ball squirted from his glove.  Alvarado hustled to third, put the brakes on, and then proceeded home after there was confusion with George's hustling into 3rd as well to complete his triple.  The throw into the infield bounced away from the 3rd baseman, giving Alvarado just enough time to score and avoid what could have been the 2nd out of the inning.  El Capitan coaching staff intentionally walked Metal and Brewer to load the bases but Tracy could not generate the winning run between the Tavares and Borges at bat.  

El Capitan surprised Tracy again and stole the momentum back in the top of the 8th with a 1 out single, error, and single combination to score a run.  Nunes pitched out of the jamb giving Tracy another chance for drama in the bottom of the 8th.

Evan Hoyt led off the 8th with single, Garrett Cichella had a nice pinch hit sacrifice bunt.  Rosette followed with another bunt which was fielded by the pitcher who then threw wild to first allowing Hoyt to score the tying run.   Using the same strategy they implemented in the 7th, El Capitan proceeded to intentionally walk Alvarado and George to load the bases, unfortunately it backfired and ended their season when Metal worked a walk to push the winning run across the plate and allow Tracy players, coaches, and fans to breathe again.

Coaches Comments: 

"Going into the 7th, El Capitan had retired 11 straight batters," said Coach Alkire.  "They really shut us down from the 2nd inning on and we just did not capitalize early in the game leaving 5 runners stranded in the first two innings.  I think offensively and defensively it may have looked like we had not played a game in 8 days.   It looked really bleak for us with only two outs left in the game.  Had we lost this game, it would have been a very, very tough loss for us."

"I was really proud of how the bench had a great attitude and helped will us to a win late.  I thought some key plays in the game were Alvarado's single in the 7th, George's triple in the 7th, and Hoyt's lead off single in the 8th.  Probably another key moment was the pitching change to Nunes in the 6th which seemed to shut down the El Capitan offense."

"Three straight walks in the bottom of the 8th was a very interesting way to win an elimination game," said Alkire as he concluded his birthday at UOP with a stressful playoff win.
