WESTON RANCH — Antonio Joseph hurt Edison with his arm as much as he did with his bat Tuesday.

Joseph drove in five runs while tossing a two-hit shutout in the Weston Ranch baseball team’s 10-0 win in five innings.

Joseph finished 3 for 4 with a double and a triple. He also struck out nine and walked just one from the hill.

Weston Ranch ended the game early with a four-run rally capped by Joseph’s run-scoring triple in the fifth. Brandon Matsumoto (2 for 2, three runs) contributed an RBI triple in the frame.

“It all starts on the mound, and he did a good job of working ahead and throwing strikes,” Weston Ranch coach Dave Smith said. “We had a good approach at the plate, and overall we’re gradually getting better and that’s encouraging.”

The Cougars (2-1) wraps up the home-and-away series at Edison Thursday.

East Union 8, Tokay 7
LODI — The Pages jumped ahead 2-0 in the third and managed to stay ahead by staving off a consistent charge from Tokay.

Andy Cavasos knocked in two pivotal runs in the sixth inning to stretch EU’s lead to 8-5. Lane Gore (three strikeouts) gave up two runs in the seventh but held on for the save.

Winning pitcher Justin Nieto had six strikeouts in five innings. Chad Agostini threw two innings in relief.
