Tuesday Results - Tracy defeats West 6-0
It was an emotional day for Jacob Shrout and his family. 1 year ago Jacob's grandfather passed away and today on the mound he had a higher power looking down on him. Jacob had a perfect game through 6 innings but had to come out due to the pitch count. He threw 6 innings of no hit, 6 strikeout ball. At the plate he was 2-3 with a double and was robbed of another hit.

It was a good win for us," said Coach Daniel Bauer. We jumped out to a comfortable 6-0 lead but let them back in the game. There were a few times we began taking on water, but we stayed mentally strong. It was a fun ball game for me as a coach. There were a lot of moving parts in this game. We put a lot of pressure on Lodi today and everyone contributed in our lineup. We had 8 hits, put the ball in play, and caused a lot of havoc on the basepaths. It was great to take 2 out of 3 against Lodi this week.

The Tracy High JV team played their cleanest game all year. "It was the first time all year we played 7 innings without an error," said a very satisfied Coach Daniel Bauer. Bauer complimented his pitchers today who fought the Lodi lineup. "Matt Canada battled through some adversity today but pitched well and limited Lodi to just 2 runs in the 3rd. He was benefited from an outstanding play by right fielder Tommy Chavez. Tommy has not played baseball since the 3rd grade, but today he made a great diving catch to stop the Lodi threat. I was really proud of him," said Bauer.
In the 6th inning Tracy got a key insurance run when Chris Francis tripled, was pinch run by Donovan Treolo who then scored on a passed ball.
Drew Giannini came into the game for relief in the 6th with 1 out and got a strikeout and a ground ball out to close out the 6th. He got the Lodi bats 1-2-3 in the 7th.

"It was a nice solid team victory for us today," said Bauer.
"It was a frustrating game for us today," said Coach Bauer. "We were distracted by many things and did not maintain the proper focus to take care of the task at hand which was win the ball game."
Lodi jumped out to an early lead, but Tracy clawed back to get 3 in the 5th and 3 in the 6th to edge closer 10-6. The Bullodgs could only generate 4 hits and struck out 6.

The Bulldogs may win this one on forefeit due to St. Mary's exceeding the pitch count, but for now the Rams boarded the bus with a 4-1 win. At the end of the 6th inning, the Rams pitcher had thrown 79 pitches. Into the 7th he threw 18 more taking him to 99. The pitch count at the JV level is 90 according to Coach Bauer. Bauer said he threw to two batters after the 90 limit. The game will be reviewed by the CIF and a forfeit will be a possibility according to Bauer.
Jacob Shrout threw 4 innings, facing 23 batters with his 81 pitches. He gave up 4 runs, 4hits, 1K, 7BB, 1ER. Delong threw 3 innings to 11 hitters with his 24 pitches. 1R, 2H, 0K, 0BB, 1ER, 1HBP.
"Although Jacob gave up 7 walks, that was a bit misleading," said Coach Daniel Bauer. The umpire was somewhat inconsistent in his zone and made it rough on all the pitchers to know what the zone was."
The Bulldogs only mustered 5 hits.
Giannini was 1-2, 1R, 1BB
Giuliiaci 2-3, 2SB
Shrout 1-3, 2B, 1RBI. Coach Bauer once again praised the hitting of Jacob. "He absolutely smoked a ball to center that 1 hopped the fence. It is rare that you see a ball hit that well at the JV level," said Bauer.
"We need to be better at the overall game of baseball. We need to be thinking ahead and play instinctively. I think we could of had 2 wins this week, but some mental lapses may have been difference," said Bauer.
"We played hard today and fought back after a very tough and sloppy first inning where the Rams got us for 7 runs. Ultimately we had too many mistakes (8 unearned runs) and left 10 Bulldogs on base. Coach Bauer complimented the offense of Jacob Shrout. "He has been putting in extra work on his hitting and it is paying off. He ripped the ball today and had 2-4 day to show for it," said Bauer.
Tracy had 13 hits but left 10 on base.

Saturday April 20, 2019 @ Zupo
With Coach Bauer on vacation, Adam Deharo stepped in and coached the team to victory at Zupo Field.
Clayton Delong started and went five innings to gain the win. "He pitched great today and he was all around the zone with his pitches," said Coach Deharo. "Clayton had six strikeouts and only gave up three hits. His defense played well behind him too." Delong was supported by Matt Pombo who pitched a three up and three down 6th and 7th inning.
Deharo was very pleased with the two strike approach of his batters and the two-out hits the team got. "Our two strike hitting was awesome today. Chris Francis and Delong each had one to propel us for four runs in the 3rd. Delong's was a triple," said Deharo. "I've been telling the team that two out hits win ball games and they did that well today."
The JV will host St. Mary's in more league action on Monday at 4 p.m.
