Tracy too much for Lancers

The East Union baseball team fell behind six runs in the first five innings, setting a 7-1 loss to the Tracy Bulldogs in motion Tuesday in Tracy.

Tracy starter Jonah Wesley overwhelmed the Lancers (2-1). Wesley, a sophomore, cruised through five innings of action, holding the Lancers hitless and scoreless, while striking out 10. The Tracy starter walked three and hit a batter, but never surrendered a run.

Steven Gigli got the start for the lancers, going 4 1/3 innings, and giving up four earned runs. Gigli scattered five hits, walked one and got a pair of strikeouts.

“He did a good job,” East Union head coach Dan Triglia said. “He got a lot of groundballs and gave up a few bloopers here and there.

“Overall, I was pleased with how he threw the ball and his command with his pitches.”

Gigli tried to help his cause, going 1-for-2 at the plate and driving in a run, while teammates Ronnie Limas and Justin Dias both went 1-for-3.

East Union will be back on the field Friday when they travel to Lodi to meet up with the Tokay Tigers.

Escalon 5, Manteca 0

Buffaloes starter Matt Burrows gave his teammates a quality shot at the victory, but Manteca was unable to muster any offense in a 5-0 loss to the Cougars Tuesday.

Burrows tossed five innings of two-hit ball, leaving the contest in the sixth trailing 1-0. Escalon would put the game out of reach with a four-run sixth inning.

“I didn’t want to throw Matty too many pitches,” Manteca head skip Gene Ballardo said. “He did a great job in his five innings, we are just going to have to learn to limit our mistakes and we’ll be fine.”

Matt Mueller was 1-for-2 with a double to lead Manteca’s offensive attack.

The Buffaloes will be on the diamond at 3:30 p.m. hosting the Central Valley Hawks.

Sonora 10, Ripon 1

The Indians tied thins up 1-1 in their first at bat, but Sonora would add a run in the third  and close the door with four runs in the sixth and seventh in a 10-1 win over Ripon.

The two clubs combined for only 11 hits, but Ripon committed four costly errors, eventually leading to its demise.

Sonora’s Wyatt Johnson led the charge, driving in a game-high three runs with a pair of doubles.

The Indians will be back on the diamond Thursday when they travel to Tuolumne to meet up with the Summerville Bears.
