BALK OFF WIN FOR TRACY
Balk off Playoff 3
The Base Umpire Explains The Balk Move To a Questioning Gregori Coach
Playoffs 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8   R H E
Gregori Jaguars 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0   1 4 0
Tracy Bulldogs 0 0 1 0 0 0 0   2 5 0

Matt Nunes and the Tracy defense were spectacular, however, so was the Gregori pitching.  This combination led to a 1-1 game after seven innings.  It would take Cody Bolton retiring the side in the top of the 8th and a single, a walk, a wild pitch, and a balk for Tracy to escape this nail biter with a win!

The victory keeps Tracy in the driver's seat heading into Friday's South Section Championship game.   St. Mary's and Gregori will battle it out on Thursday at 7 p.m. to see who will advance to play the Bulldogs.  Whichever team it is, they will need to win twice to deny Tracy their second straight championship. 

"The story tonight was Matt Nunes who dominated," said Coach Alkire.  "Of his 84 pitches, he faced 27 batters and only threw 24 balls in his 7 innings.  He threw 60 of his 84 pitches for strikes and only one ball left the infield and that was in the 4th inning when Gregori flied out to Hoyt in right field.  Matt gave up a hit in the 3rd and then proceeded to retire the next 12 batters.  Cody Bolton would then come in and have a shutdown 8th inning giving us a chance to win it in the bottom of the 8th."

Win it they did as Josh Alvarado got things started with a first pitch single.  "We always tell our players to forget their last at bat and focus on the next at bat.  For Josh, he had been retired in his first three at bats and I know he was not happy about that.  In his final at bat in the 8th, I just sensed he was in a positive frame of mind and ready to redeem himself."  Gregori did not want to pitch to the hot hitting Nathan George, so he worked a walk.  After a wild pitch which advanced Alvarado and George 90 feet, the Gregori relief pitcher was called for a balk while facing Chandlyr Metal which allowed Alvarado to score in a odd conclusion to what had been a pitchers duel.

"Gregori is a very good baseball team.  Their pitching the last two days of the playoffs has been outstanding," said Alkire.

On a final note, Bolton's win tonight was his 24th career win which ties him for the Tracy High career pitching record with John Jaeger (Class of 2013).


The varsity team banquet is 6:30 p.m. this Thursday at the THS cafeteria.   Light refreshments.

BREWER, BRUISES, AND BATS IN VICTORY OVER PITMAN
Pitching Lee Brewer 5_22
Lee Brewer Gave Tracy 5 Innings Of Playoff Pitching Monday vs Pitman
CIF-SJS Playoffs 1 2 3 4 5 6 7   R H E
Pitman Pride #5  2  0  0  2  0  X  X    4 3
Tracy Bulldogs #1  1  3  4  6  X  X   14 9 3

At the beginning of the baseball season, Lee Brewer was not a consideration in the starting rotation as he anchored third base every game.  Late in the season Coach Crivello called on Lee to see if he would be willing to add depth to the pitching staff.  Now in the 2nd game of the playoffs, Brewer played a pivotal role in defeating Pitman as he limited the Pride to three hits over 5 innings.

After a couple of errors placed Tracy in a 2-0 hole in the first inning, the Bulldog batters used a combination of solid hitting, patience at the plate, and a bizarre six hit-by-pitches to place a tremendous strain on the Pitman pitching staff.  Clayton Borges had 3 hits and 6RBIs to lead all Bulldog batters.  Evan Hoyt was 2 for 3 with an RBI, Josh Alvarado was 1 for 3 with 2RBIs and Nathan George continued to be a nightmare for opposing teams as he doubled in the first.   In the game Alvarado, Tavares, Hoyt, George, and Bejines would all get hit by a pitch, with Tavares getting bruised up twice.

"The performance by Lee Brewer tonight on the mound was really important not only in our win, but helping to line up our pitching for the balance of this week," said Coach Alkire late Monday night.  "It was his first varsity career start and he really has not thrown very many innings this year, so to give us 5 innings of 3 hit ball, was something very special.  His performance on Monday allowed us to give Matt Nunes and Cody Bolton  a little extra rest.  One of them will likely start on Tuesday versus Gregori."

"We left a lot of runners on base tonight, but we also drove several in.  Leading the way was Borges who had three key hits and 6 RBIs.  In the 2nd inning with 2 outs he tripled in 2 runs and then in the 3rd inning with 2 outs he singled in 2 runs.  He then singled in our final at bat to help us win the game in 5 innings."

"Overall we had a lot of good at bats.  We received a lot of walks, but our batters had good approaches at the plate being patient taking balls and being relatively selective swinging at strikes," said Alkire.
