They tied one, won one and lost one. That is how the Winters High School JV baseball team’s week went. The Warriors played three games last week at the Colusa Tournament starting with a huge comeback against Sutter. On Friday, March 9, the Warriors fell to a 13-0 deficit, then trailed 15-1 going into the fifth inning before putting on a scoring show.
The Warriors scored eight runs in the fifth and six more in the sixth to tie the game at 15-15.
Unfortunately for the Warriors’ momentum, the game was called due to a time limit.
“I am so proud of all of our players,” said coach Manuel Garcia.
Andrew Del Rio batted 2 for 4 with two RBI and two runs scored. Joe Mariani scored three runs. Cooper Andres scored two runs. Ryan Stone also added two runs. Carson Lowrie scored one run. Hunter Godden scored a run, Jason Drummond scored two runs and Kadin Pease scored one run for the Warriors.
In game two on Friday, Winters faced Mount Shasta and pulled off a 5-2 victory behind the arm of Stone and Godden. Stone got the start and Godden closed it out.
Lowrie batted 2 for 4 at the plate with two runs scored, while Stone, Drummond and Pease each crossed the plate for Winters.
On Saturday, March 10, the Warriors faced Fort Bragg and suffered a 13-3 loss.
“They hit a grand slam and we just had a big letdown,” said Garcia.
“We just were not in the game after that.”
Del Rio went 2 for 3 with two runs scored, while Andres scored the other run.
