CERES — Brock Swift pitched his second straight complete game, and the East Union High sophomore baseball team helped him out with a five-run third inning to beat Ceres 6-3 Tuesday.

The Squires improved to 10-3 in the Valley Oak League (13-6 overall) to remain two games back of first-place Oakdale.

Zac Carrillo and Robert Thompson each hammered two-run base hits in the third inning. Josh Bonds plated two runs, but it was otherwise a quiet day at the plate for EU.

“It was  a well-played game,” East Union coach Mike James said. “Ceres had a really good pitcher and kept us handcuffed. He did a really nice job and I have to give him credit.

“We did enough to win. Brock pitched through a rough seventh inning and really showed intestinal fortitude.”
