THE BASICS

Final score: Gavilan 11 Los Medanos 7

Location: Gilroy, Ca (Gavilan College Softball Field)

HOW IT HAPPENED

Los Medanos jumped out to an early lead as they scored 3 runs in the top of the first. The Rams were able to answer back in the bottom half when freshman Brook Siaz scored on a passed ball. In the 2nd the Mustangs put up a four spot and appeared to take control of the game only to have the Rams to strike for 3 runs in the bottom of the 3rd inning. However, that was just a taste of what was to come as the Rams struck in the 6th inning. It started with back to back to back triples by Siaz, sophomore Baylee Padilla and freshman Noel Chavarria. Once the inning was over the Rams put up 7 runs to take an 11-7 lead. After a rocky first two innings, pitcher Lex Chavarria settled down throwing five innings of shut out ball on the way to a win.
