Patterson started the season with three competitive losses that were decided by a combined four-run margin.

Tuesday’s contest at Sierra wasn’t so close.

The host Timberwolves erased an early 2-0 deficit by plating all of their runs in the fourth inning of an 11-2 blowout.

Jake Pruitt walloped two doubles while driving in three runs, and Jakob Gallagher was 2 for 3 as Sierra (2-2) made the most of its eight hits while taking advantage of two errors.

Pitchers Blake Sundquist and Leo Soto combined for a three-hitter. Sundquist threw the first four innings and struck out two. Soto pitched three perfect frames.

Sierra heads to Escalon (2-1) on Thursday.

Manteca 16, G. Davis 3

The Buffaloes (5-0) rallied for seven runs in the second and put visiting Grace Davis (1-3) away for good with an eight spot in the bottom of the sixth.

Jacob Corn pitched four scoreless innings for the win and was 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI at the plate. Michael Garibay (2 for 3, two runs, two RBIs), Lucas Vaughn (two runs), Buddy Reeder (double, RBI, run) and Brandon Landwehr (two runs, two RBIs) were other offensive contributors.

“A lot of guys came up big today at the plate and it was great to play error-free baseball again,” Manteca coach Neil MacDannald said. “We are getting to a tough stretch in our schedule, so limiting mistakes and making plays when they’re there is going to be huge.”

Gregori 6, Lathrop 4

In Modesto, Gregori (2-3) took advantage of five walks in the second inning which was also highlighted by Andrew Urrutia’s two-run double.

Lathrop (1-3) was down 6-1 going into the seventh but continued to scrap. Reserves Felix Rodriguez and Jacob Nunes doled out back-to-back, one-out knocks, and Santiago Kantun singled to load the bases. All three players scored, but Gregori was able to get the final batter to pop out. Carlos Estrada had one of his two RBIs in the inning.

Millennium 7,
Weston Ranch 4

Freshman Jason Medina did his job from the bump, but the Cougars (1-5) committed six errors behind their young pitcher in Tuesday’s nonleague contest in Tracy.

Medina (five strikeouts, three walks) needed less than 80 pitches to get through six innings. Millennium (3-0) scratched across the final three runs in the bottom of the sixth, a rally that began with a throwing error in the infield.

Senior Cody Simerley and freshman Manuel Rubio each belted two hits for the Cougars. Jordan Severin legged out a triple in the top of the sixth and scored the tying run on C.J. Drain’s groundout.

Weston Ranch looks to bounce back Thursday at Chavez and Saturday against visiting Delta Charter.

Lodi 10, East Union 0

At Lodi’s Zupo Field, Flames lefty Dawson Lewis struck out six Lancers and was in full control of a three-hit shutout.

Lodi (3-1) totaled 12 hits and ended it early with a five-run barrage in the bottom of the fifth. Kyle Emerson accounted for two of East Union’s hits.
