The East Union High varsity baseball squad improved its early season mark to 2-0 following Tuesday’s 10-1 non-league win at Patterson.

Starting pitcher Steven Gigli tossed three innings, yielding an unearned run while striking out three.

The Lancers scored three in the first, with Brock Swift driving in a pair with a triple. He was 2 for 3 at the plate.

East Union tacked on two more in the second and another in the third. In the fourth, Jordan Kron, who was 2 for 3, delivered a two-run single.

The game ended after six innings because of darkness.

Patterson dropped to 1-1.

The Lancers are scheduled to travel to Gregori on Thursday and take on Lodi on Friday.

Bear Creek 8, Weston Ranch 0

The Cougars had a tough third inning against the visiting Bruins.

That’s where they committed four errors, enabling Bear Creek to score six times in the frame.

The non-league game was called after six because of darkness.

Weston Ranch, which also gave up two earlier runs, got hits from Jesse Hurtado, David Perez, and Christian Vasquez.


Manteca 5, Christian Brothers 4

The Buffaloes can thank their depth for contributing to another quality non-league win on Tuesday.

So says coach Frank Fontana, who recognized his doubles players for sweeping the competition.

Manteca (2-0) was coming off a victory over Pleasant Grove. “That was another quality win for us,” he added.

Against host Christian Brothers, the Buffaloes’ No. 1 team of Alex Vasquez and Thomas Reza paved the way by going three sets (3-6, 6-1, 6-0).

The No. 2 pairing of Sam Dhaliwol and Daniel Besterwich (6-2, 6-0) and the No. 3 duo of Puneet Sandhu and Angel Tejada (6-2, 6-0) both took care of matters in straight sets.

In singles, Manteca’s No. 3 player Jacob Webb won in two sets (6-0, 6-1) while the No, 4 player Yok Jing Ma also came out on top (7-6, 6-0).

The Buffaloes are scheduled to face Roseville today.
