Jose Pascasio climbed the hill for the Trojans and Avery Thompson was the starting catcher. Pascasio gave up 0 runs, 0 hits and had 5 strikeouts. Pitching in relief was Caden Beazley and Parker Schoenwald.
Defensively the Trojans played very well. Turning in great plays was short stop Caleb Rossell, Caden Beazley while at 3rd base made a great catch on a hard hit line drive, and the catcher Avery Thompson picked off a runner at 2nd base with a throw from his knees.
Offensively the Trojans ran the bases with confidence and scored in bunches. Avery Thompson had a hot bat with 4 hits-two being doubles. Parker Schoenwald added a nice double in the 4th inning.
Caleb Rossell was also on fire and had three hits and an intentional walk. With Rossell’s last trip to the plate in the 6th inning, he sent a fastball deep into the Pateros’ evening skyline, and with a thunderous clang of the bleachers in center field, hit his first home run of the season.
