SEASON ENDS FOR BULLDOGS IN SACRAMENTO

TRACY 0 - BELLA VISTA 2

Friday, May 17, 2019

The Tracy baseball season ended on Friday afternoon in the 2nd round of the CIF-SJS Division 2 baseball playoffs.  Bella Vista got two runs in the 3rd and that was all they needed as the Tracy offense was relatively silent with the exception of Kyle Corona who had 3 hits in the game   Both Dibble and Henderson contributed with singles.  Devin Williams went 4+ innings and was replaced by Blake Ornellas who went the final 1+.   Bella Vista starting pitcher Jake Torres took down 9 bulldogs on strikeouts.

"Our pitching was just excellent today," said head Coach Vic Alkire who had just wrapped his 26th season with the Bulldogs.  "The only runs scored by Bella Vista were in the 3rd inning on an errant infield throw with two outs.    Devin was excellent on the mound and Blake did a great job coming in and containing Bella Vista the rest of the way."


"We had one major opportunity to score in the 5th inning when we had one out with the bases loaded.  On consecutive pitches we popped up to the middle infield.   That was our best opportunity of the day and it fizzled."


The highest praise from coach was directed at sophomore catcher Kyle Corona.  "He had three of our five hits , one of which was a double.  He also threw out all three Bella Vista runners who attempted to steal.  I cannot remember one of our catchers who has thrown out more runners in a season.  He is so consistent and has a very quick release.  He has been a star for us offensively and defensively."

THANKS FOR VIEWING DURING THE 2019 SEASON

I want to take a moment to thank those of you who visited my website this year.  While my camera was focused on the varsity 80% of the time, Carla Bicomong provided some excellent coverage of ALL the JV games.  Anna Terry was also photographing the Frosh/Soph squad routinely.    


Since January, I've had over 46,000 hits on the website and the overall count is at 672, 400 and climbing after my 13th season covering Bulldog Baseball!  The website will cover the varsity squad through the playoffs.  Check back routinely for info on Fall Ball and other baseball announcements.   


As summer vacation kicks in, my coverage of Tracy High Football warms up.  View the newly formatted football website at  TracyHighFootball.com
