Express sports

The Winters High School varsity baseball team played the Orland Trojans in a three game series last week and won two out of the three to start league play. On Tuesday, April 8, Winters traveled to Orland to play a double header, played them at home in game three on Friday, April 11, and then played the Pioneer Patriots on Saturday in a non league game.
In game one of the double-header Winters shutout the Trojans 4-0 behind the arm of Christian Corrales. Corrales threw a complete game giving up no runs on five hits with one strikeout and no walks.
At the plate Greg Creamer led the Warriors batting 2 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI. Ben Case scored a run. Ivan Martinez batted 1 for 3. Corrales went 1 for 3 with an RBI, while Trevor Ray and Morgan Nicholas each batted 1 for 3 with a double and a run scored.
In game two, the Warriors picked up another win, this time with a score of 7-2. Ray took the mound this time for the Warriors and threw a complete game. Ray gave up two runs on seven hits and had three strikeouts and no walks.

Nicholas went 1 for 3 with an RBI and two runs scored. Ray batted 1 for 4 with double, a run scored and two RBI, while Roger Padilla went 1 for 3 with a run scored.

Ernie Duran got the start and gave up two runs on four walks. Creamer stepped in for relief and finished up the first inning and threw two more giving up three runs on two hits with six base on balls and four strikeouts. Corrales threw three innings giving up one unearned run on one hit and struck out two batters. Ray threw the last inning and struck out all three batters he faced.
At the plate, Case batted 1 for 4 with a triple and a run scored. Martinez batted 1 for 3 with a run scored. Corrales went 1 for 3 with an RBI. Jaime Bermudez batted 1 for 2 and Ray went 1 for 4.
