In a four-game tournament, the Winters High School varsity baseball team showed everyone watching why they are still the number one ranked team in the Northern Section. The Warriors competed in the Sutter Tournament last week and won four straight games in dominating style. Not only did Winters outscore their opponents 50-0, they only gave up three hits total in the four games.

Since allowing Liberty Ranch to come back and give the Warriors their first and only loss of the season on March 26, Winters has been on a tear. The Warriors have won seven straight now and are back in the groove as they start league play this week hosting Colusa on Tuesday, April 10.

On Wednesday, April 4, the Warriors played their first game of the tournament against Los Molinos and shutout the Bulldogs 18-0 in a five-inning game. Jacob Roberts got the start and the win on the mound throwing all five innings giving up no runs on just one hit, had one walk and seven strikeouts.

At the plate, the Warriors had just nine hits but totaled 17 RBI with 10 different players putting runs on the board. Sammy Gonzales had a big day batting 2 for 3 with a homerun, four runs scored and two RBI. Brandon Gomez went 1 for 1 with three runs scored and an RBI.

Dalton Lowrie, Aaron Mendoza and Jack Mariani each scored a run. Ruben Valencia went 1 for 3 with two runs scored and three RBI. Gary Molina had an RBI. Daniel Carrion batted 1 for 2 with two runs scored and had three RBI. Jamie Garcia had an RBI. Atlas Martinez went 1 for 3 with a double and a run scored. Anthony Carrion batted 1 for 3 with two runs scored and had an RBI. Roberts batted 2 for 3 with four RBI, while Thomas Kakutani scored a run and had an RBI.

The Warriors were back on the field a few hours later, this time taking on Las Plumas. Once again, it was a five-inning game where the Warriors gave up just one hit and shutout their opponent 12-0. This time it was the lefty Gomez who took the mound and improved his overall record to 6-0 on the season. Gomez gave up no runs on one hit with one walk and six strikeouts.

At the plate, it was Daniel Carrion leading the way batting 3 for 3 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. Valencia had a hot bat, going 2 for 3 with a homerun, a double, three runs scored and three RBI. Martinez batted 2 for 3 with a run scored and two RBI. Gonzales batted 1 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI. Gomez went 1 for 3 with a run scored. Molina batted 1 for 2 with a double and three RBI. Anthony Carrion went 1 for 4 with two runs scored and McCay Baker scored two runs.

Winters returned to the tournament on Thursday, April 5, and played their first game against Gridley. The Warriors once again shut out their opponent with a 7-0 victory, but had to wait for a five-run sixth inning to seal the deal. Winters scored a run in the first and another in the second, but were kept from crossing the plate until the sixth. 

Since Gridley is the number two team in the section and the number one team in the division above the Warriors, Coach Ingles put the ball in the hands of his ace right hander, Anthony Carrion, and let him do his thing. Carrion gave up no runs on just one hit with six walks and had seven strikeouts improving his season record to 3-0.

At the plate, Anthony Carrion did even more damage to the Bulldogs batting 2 for 4 with a grand slam, a double, a run scored and had four RBI. Gonzales batted 1 for 2 with two runs scored and an RBI. Gomez went 1 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI. Daniel Carrion batted 1 for 3. Martinez, Roberts and Kakutani each scored a run, while Mariani went 1 for 1.

The Warriors played their second game of the day, and their fourth and final game of the tournament, and surely those who were not Warrior fans were glad to see them go. The Warriors faced Wheatland in game four and shut out the Pirates 13-0 in another five-inning game.

This time, Daniel Carrion took the mound for his first start of the season and what a start it was. Carrion threw a no-hitter against the Pirates with no walks and struck out seven batters for his second win of the season.

Roberts had the hot bat this game, batting 3 for 3 with two doubles, three runs scored and had four RBI. Mariani batted 2 for 2 with two RBI. Baker scored two runs. Anthony Carrion scored two runs as well. Martinez went 1 for 2 with a run scored and an RBI. Daniel Carrion batted 1 for 2 with three runs scored. Molina went 1 for 3 with a triple and two RBI. Valencia batted 2 for 3 with two runs scored and an RBI. Lowrie was 1 for 1. Gomez batted 1 for 4 and Gonzales went 1 for 3 with two RBI.
