Renegades storm through week
By Jeff Weisinger
Rain didn't stop the defending State Champions from turning the season around after the Ohlone baseball team took commanding wins over the Rams of the City College of San Francisco and Hartnell on Tuesday, March 22, and Friday, March 25, respectively.
Sophomore right-hander Jordan Camacho went to 2-0 after a solid outing in Ohlone's 13-2 win over CCSF on Tuesday. Camacho pitched six and a third innings, allowing just one unearned run on six hits with four strikeouts against the Rams. He also received early run support in the first inning as Ryan Tella scored the first run for the Renegades on an error by CCSF third baseman Mark Johnson.
Ohlone would strike for two more in the third inning off a solo home run by Tella and a sacrifice RBI by Christian Weeber, scoring Mark Mercer from third to give Ohlone the 3-0 lead after three innings. However, the big inning came for the Renegades in the sixth inning.
Leading 4-1 entering the bottom of the sixth, Ohlone struck for nine runs on six hits in an inning that saw Ohlone bring 14 batters to the plate and CCSF changed pitchers twice. Both Weeber and Matt Silvernale had separate two-RBI hits to push the Ohlone lead to 13-1 after the sixth. Fernando Guatemala notched another run for the Rams in the eighth inning to make the score 13-2 off of a sacrifice RBI with no outs.
Ohlone followed the big 13-2 win on Tuesday with a clutch 5-1 win over conference rival Hartnell on Friday. Ohlone has won three games in a row since losing to Chabot back on March 15, just one game shy of tying their longest win streak of the season, which is four games back in late February.
Chabot 4, Cabrillo 3
Chabot's baseball team extended their season-high win streak to six games after Tuesday's 4-3 win over Cabrillo College in Hayward. Starter Brandon Plotz stayed strong through seven innings, despite allowing three runs (all unearned) in the third inning, allowing just six hits with six strikeouts.
Cabrillo took the early 3-0 lead in the top of the third after an RBI single by Mike Gerlach and two throwing errors by Glads third baseman Sean Barrie. Chabot clawed back for a run in the eighth inning off of an RBI single by Brian Hamm, and rallied back for three runs in the bottom of the ninth, including the game-winning RBI single by Marc Wik, scoring Craig Massoni with two outs after both Alex Olmedo and Corey Heidebrecht struck out swinging with the bases loaded.
