Renegades end win streak at five
By Jeff Weisinger
After the Renegades pushed their win streak to a season-high five games after an impressive 16-3 demolition of the Gavilan Rams, and a solid 8-0 performance at Skyline on Thursday, Ohlone took a step back, falling to Canada 7-3 on Saturday.
In Tuesday's 13-run win over Gavilan, right hander Ryan Devencenzi notched his first win of the season, pitching five innings, allowing three runs on just four hits with seven strikeouts and two walks. Sophomores Cody Wilson, Joel DePorte and Brandon Arata threw a combined hitless four innings with DePorte tossing a strikeout and Arata striking out two.
Sophomore Ryan Tella went 3-for-3 with two RBI's and three runs scored. Offensively the Renegades dominated the Rams, taking the early 8-0 lead after just the third inning and added in a five run fifth inning to push the lead to 13-3.
Ohlone looked strong offensively during the week, outscoring opponents a combined 31-6 while winning two of the three games. The defending state champs will take on De Anza at Ohlone on Tuesday.
Baseball: Chabot 6, West Valley 7
A 12-5 win over Monterey Peninsula, followed by a 4-3 win over Mission College could not translate over into the Glads narrow 7-6 loss against West Valley on Friday, pushing their record down to 16-7 on the season.
The one-run loss ended Chabot's win streak at nine games, as the Gladiators have won 10 of the last 12 dating back to their March 1 win over Skyline.
In Friday's loss, Chabot went through six different pitchers, with just Corey Elliot pitching more than an inning as he threw two innings, allowing two runs on three hits with a pair of strikeouts. Sophomore Kyle Gallegos kept the Gladiators alive at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI's and a run scored.
The Vikings trailed Chabot 6-5 going into the seventh inning until Trevor Marino tied the game at 6-6 after his RBI-single to left field. West Valley took the go-ahead lead as Scott Fluery scored on a wild pitch in the eighth inning.
