OAKDALE – Weston Ranch didn’t get any favors from the weather when a rainout turned a home game against the defending Valley Oak League champions into a double-header at their yard, ending with the Cougars dealing with a pair of shutout defeats.

Oakdale snatched the first contest 10-0, needing just five innings to eliminate Weston Ranch’s chance at victory. Brandon Matsumoto tallied the Cougars’ only hit, as Oakdale pitcher Brennon Williams stifled the Cougars hitters in their fourth straight loss.

The outcome wasn’t too different in the nightcap with Weston Ranch falling 7-0, but the Cougars were able to make some positive strides against one of the more dominant baseball programs in the area.

“We did do a better job in the second game of taking care of the ball and throwing strikes,” Weston Ranch head coach Dave Smith said. “But I thought in both games we were just kind of timid and kind of played on our heels.

“When you play a good program like Oakdale they’re going to capitalize on virtually every mistake that you make, and they obviously did that today.”

Tyler Scharnow and Matsumoto both closed game two 1 for 3 for the Cougars.

Weston Ranch will be back on the diamond at 4 p.m. when they host the Lathrop Spartans in a VOL matchup.

Ceres 12, Weston Ranch 0
WESTON RANCH – Ceres pitcher Kaycee Creek held the Cougars in check in a one-sided VOL win Thursday.

Creek held Weston Ranch to just two hits, while her offense gave her more than enough support with a three-run first inning. The Bulldogs pushed things out of reach with an eight-run fourth.

Weston Ranch will have ample opportunities to get things figured out as the squad plays four games in six days, beginning with a home game against Sonora at 4 p.m.
