Sophomore Steven Gigli went 3 for 4 with a double, two RBIs and three steals to lead East Union High’s baseball team to an 8-4 victory over visiting Lathrop Friday.

The Lancers (4-7 Valley Oak League, 9-12 overall), who dropped four of their previous five, hope to have some momentum built up for their series-ending contest against second-place Sonora today.

“It was nice to get back to the win column,” EU coach Dan Triglia said. “We needed that, and hopefully it gives us some needed confidence going up to Sonora.”

John Ott added a 2-for-2, two-RBI effort for EU, and Joe Modesto hammered a double.

Colby Seibel picked up the with after 5 1/3 innings, scattering four hits for two earned runs to go with three strikeouts. Bret Riley recorded the long save, giving up no runs and no hits while fanning two in 1 2/3 innings.

Mike Pereznegron finished 2 for 4 with an RBI for Lathrop (0-13, 2-17).

Central Valley 13, Weston Ranch 3
CERES – The Hawks handed Weston Ranch a VOL sweep when they closed out the two squads’ two-game set with a 10-run rule victory.

Akiha Etu had a solid contest, leading the team with a 2-fo-4 effort with a pair of doubles. Steven Singh was 2 for 2 with two singles and a run scored.

“I thought we did a decent job,” Weston Ranch head coach Dave Smith said. “We didn’t make a lot of errors and we didn’t make a lot of mistakes. They just got the hits when they needed to and we didn’t.”

The Cougars (2-9, 6-14) will try and get things figured out Monday when they make the short trek to Lathrop to take on the Spartans.
