With a 4-0 record and just two games remaining in the season, the Winters High School JV baseball team is hoping to win the Sacramento Valley League title this week. The Warriors will host Live Oak on Tuesday, May 3, and will travel to Live Oak for their final game of the season on Friday, May 6.
Winters played Pierce High School twice last week and pulled off two victories. The Warriors traveled to Arbuckle for Tuesdays game and came home with a big 16-6 victory over the Bears.
Jake Roberts threw all five innings for the Warriors giving up six runs, just three of them earned on four hits with nine strikeouts.
At the plate Winters totaled 13 hits with 16 RBI. Trevor Choonhavrai batted 2 for 4, with a run scored and two RBI. Thomas Kakutani went 2 for 5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI. Dalton Lowrie batted 1 for 4 with an RBI. Tyler Berry went 1 for 2 with a run scored and two RBI. McKay Baker batted 2 for 5 with two runs scored and an RBI. Jaime Garcia batted 1 for 5 with an RBI. Tyler Perez batted 2 for 5 with a double, three runs scored and two RBI. Atlas Martinez went 1 for 5 with two runs scored and two RBI. Roberts scored two runs and Jacob Pease batted 1 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBI.
Friday’s game was a little different than game one. The Warriors had to battle from start to finish but they did finish with an 8-7 victory. Winters took an 1-0 lead in the second fell behind 3-1 in the top of the fourth but quickly regained the lead in the bottom of the inning scoring three runs of their own. The Warriors scored two more in the fifth to go up 6-3 but the Bears responded again and once again took a 7-6 lead in the top of the sixth inning. Winters answered back though with another two runs in the bottom of the sixth for the win.
