TRACY TAKES ST. MARY'S TO THE BRINK BUT COMES UP A RUN SHORT AFTER 2 GAME CHAMPIONSHIP FRIDAY

image_name2
2015 SEASON ENDS IN A MOMENT OF REFLECTION

The 2015 Bulldogs can hold their heads very high as their season comes to an end on Friday night.  As disappointing as the result was in Game 2 of the doubleheader, the Bulldogs went further than any other baseball team in the long history of Tracy High and this team went much further than probably all Area Code 209 baseball experts predicted.  

If you wanted entertainment, drama, and some close games, UOP was the place to be on Friday evening as St. Mary's and Tracy battled it out for the CIF SJS South Championship of Division I high school baseball.  

Tracy jumped out to an early lead in Game 1 and held on to defeat the Rams 9-7 forcing a second game.  

In Game 2 the drama built and it was St. Mary's who drew first blood but the Bulldogs would not let the Rams run away with it and battled all the way to last out falling 3-2 in a game filled with close plays, controversy, and high blood pressure between both teams.

Tracy Bulldogs 2 2 4 0 0 1 0   11
St. Mary's Rams 0 0 4 1 0 0 2   7 9 0

Summary

Tracy wasted no time letting the Rams know they weren't just satisfied with making it to the championship round.  The relaxed and focused Bulldogs placed 8 runs on the board in the first 3 innings creating a huge hole for the Rams to have to climb out of.

The Dogs got things started when Nathan George singled in the first inning followed by a Cichella walk and Hoff single.  Greely then singled in George and Cichella for a two run first.  

Noah Denoyer was the game 1 starter for Tracy and pitched very well in the first inning striking out two and then getting out of a bases loaded jamb in the 2nd inning.  

In the top of the 2nd Metal led off with a hit by pitch, Rosette walked and Alvarado doubled them in.  Tracy would eventually learn that 4 runs was not going to be enough and luckily they continued to apply the pressure in the 3rd when Cichella walked, Hoff singled, and Greely then walked.  After Saenz flied out, Metal took a 2-2 fastball and belted it over the left field fence for a grand slam.  Those 4 runs would be crucial as St. Mary's mounted a 7 run comeback shortly thereafter.

Denoyer got the first 2 outs of the 3rd, but then St. Mary's unloaded for 4 runs in the 3rd on three singles, a homerun and a double.

Ricky Staas showed enthusiasm to enter the game on the mound in the 4th but an error and single would plate one more run for the Rams.  

Tracy generated another run of insurance in the 6th when Jacob George singled and Nathan George doubled his brother home.  Staas would cruise through the bottom of the 6th but had a nail biting 7th as St. Mary's scored two runs to come to within two of Tracy but the Bulldog defense got the final outs with the tying run at the plate.

As the Bulldogs began to celebrate their game 1 victory, the coaching staff was quick to hold one finger in the area stating that was just one and another hard fought victory would be required in order to start the real celebration.

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME 2 SUMMARY

Championship Game 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7   R H E
Tracy Bulldogs 0 1 0 1 0 0 0   5
St. Mary's Rams 1 0 2 0 0 0 X   4

Game Summary

Tracy had captured the momentum after Game 1 and St. Mary's was in need of some shutdown defense in Game 2 and they found it when Evan Fagundes took the mound.  In the 3 innings he pitched, he only allowed 1 hit and 1 run but had to leave the game after 3 innings due to the weekly pitch limit.  Steven Vasquez pitched the balance of the game and was almost as effective limiting the Bulldogs to 4 hits and 1 run.

Meanwhile Tracy turned to Cody Bolton for the biggest game of the year and he did not disappoint.  For as powerful an offense as St. Mary's has, Bolton limited the Rams to just 4 hits and 1 earned run.  He kept his composure in many pressure situations throughout the game and by keeping the Rams from breaking things open, he gave his team a chance for the championship. 

After St. Mary's started the game with a run, the Dogs responded when Cameron Hoff walked to lead off the 2nd.  He would steal 2nd and then score on a Saenz base hit.

In the 4th inning Tracy got another run to stay within one of St. Mary's when Garrett Cichella reached on a throwing error.  Hoff singled and then Greely grounded out to drive home Cichella.

Tracy had scoring opportunities in every inning but good plays and some luck were on the Rams side as they held off the tenacious Bulldog attack to seize the Division I South title.
