The Winters High School varsity baseball team had a winning week, with one very close game against Gridley and two games against Pierce.

On Tuesday, March 22, the WHS varsity team won their home conference game against Pierce High School by a score of 10-4.

Connor Ray, Matt Moore and AJ Pignataro played a very strong hitting game against Pierce. Ray successfully put three runs on the board for Winters, making his way around the bases on steals and across home plate on Moores RBIs. Moore and Pignataro each scored two runs for the Warriors and went four for four at bat. Logan Spears, Ashton Baylor and Derrick Olson also each scored a run for the Warriors.

Anthony Duran took the mound in the game against Pierce and pitched a great game. Shortstop Isaac Lopez and third baseman Justice Madsen made several great defensive plays stopping Pierce from being able to capitalize on any hit they were able to make. Moore also made several outs at first base.

On Wednesday, March 23, the Warriors lost their home non-conference game against Gridley High School by a score of 7-6.

The Warriors had a couple of rough innings at bat during the start of the game. Besides the one run by Madsen in the second inning the Winters varsity baseball team struggled getting on base until the fifth inning when Pignataro, Ray and Madsen were finally able to make it across home plate putting three runs on the board. In the sixth inning, the Warriors closed the gap even further with a run from Isaiah Pazmino and Baylor.

The Warriors switched up their defense a bit, with both Ray and Madsen taking the mound. Olson, Baylor and Lopez did a great job backing them up, along with Moore who did a great job covering first base. These six players were involved in a majority of the plays and if it weren’t for a few minor errors the Warriors probably would have won the game

The Warriors went on to play Pierce again on Friday, March 25, and won by a score of 14-0.
