JV - Tuesday, April 19, 2022
A dominant Lodi pitcher collected 13 strikeouts through 6 innings before Tracy could get on the board in the 7th to tie it. The Dogs would then take a 1 run lead in the top of the 8th and had high hopes of winning the game before Lodi made their comeback in the bottom of the inning to score two and defeat Tracy.
In the 7th the Tracy comeback was sparked when Tony Romano led off the inning and reached base on an error. Kayden Mattos then walked and Tyler Jesser advanced Romano to 3rd with a single. Gabe Jarata then singled to right to score Romano and Mattos to tie the game.
In the 8th, Eli Worth walked, Trenton Hayes laid down a sac bunt to move Worth to 3rd. Nolan Wortham singled and scored Worth to give Tracy a 3-2 lead. Tracy had two outs in the bottom of the 8th, but a slow rolling infield ball led to a close play at first that the umpire called safe to allow the Lodi winning run to score.
"This was a real pitchers duel, said Coach Adam Deharo. "We were rolling along in a fast pace 1 hour game as we entered the sixth inning. Wyatt Brandt had only thrown 48 pitches through 5 innings. He was lights out and our defense was really flashing the leather completing several double plays behind him. Other great plays were turned in by Kiet Lau who chased down a ball in left field and Tony Romano made a diving play at shortstop. It may have been our best game of the year. We just faced a really good pitcher on their side as well."
"I was proud of how our guys responded in the top of the 7th after going down 2-0 in the half inning before and then kept the heat on Lodi into the 8th."
"I really like our chances on Thursday vs Lodi and I'll be starting Tony Romano on the mound," said Deharo.

Tracy let St. Mary's build too big of a lead early and it was a bit much to overcome when Tracy applied the gas in the 7th. "Today we were not as clean defensively as we were yesterday," said Coach Deharo. "We committed three errors and it was costly early. It has been a long week for our players and we put up a good fight at the end today. Our approach at the plate was good and I thought our bats were fairly electric. It was nice to get Ronin Contreras back in the lineup today."

The JV Dogs trailed 8-3 at one point in this game and rallied to stun St. Mary's 9-8.
I'm so proud of these guys," said a very satisfied Coach Deharo late Thursday night. "This game was won through heart, grit, determination, and a never give up attitude."
After getting two runs to start the game, Tracy went into a scoring slumber for three innings as they watched the Rams put eight runs on the board through three innings.
"Tony Romano started on the mound for us and gave us 2 1/3 innings. I though he pitched pretty well, but St. Mary's found a way to get several hits to generate their runs. I brought in Kayden Mattos in the 3rd and from there he took control and shut down the Rams. He was exceptional with no hit ball and struck out six. He is a crafty left hander and today he was keeping the ball down. We got some good defensive plays today and did not commit any errors," said Deharo.
Deharo called out the hitting of Tony Romano. "He was 3-5 for us today in the lead off spot. He is swinging the bat really well and hitting well with two strike counts."
"We did so many things right today. One great example was Eli Worth who had a 12 pitch at bat and then earned a walk."
Deharo will give the ball to David Madrid on Friday afternoon in the final game with St. Mary's.

Coach Deharo had mixed feelings in his postgame press conference. "We went away from our approach later in the game and started swinging at bad pitches. The pitch count on the Rams pitcher slowed way down in the late innings and I just feel we didn't' play ball like we usually do," said Deharo. "On the other hand I liked the way Wyatt Brandt pitched for us. He held the Ram bats at bay after starting off with the bases loaded in the first. We were only down four runs through five innings and still had a chance. We just could not give him run support today."
Coach Deharo also gave compliments to Kayden Mattos and Tommy Hayes. "Kayden is really swinging the bat well. He went 2-3 today. Tommy came in late to catch and put together a good at bat when he got his chance off the bench. He will earn some more at bats in the future."

The JV Bulldogs generated 10 hits and Franklin helped out with a whopping 10 errors to give Tracy a substantial advantage in this Monday afternoon affair. Jaicob Isip got the start and collected four strikeouts in his 3+ innings of work. Kayden Mattos got the bulk of the relief duties and picked up six strikeouts through the final three innings of work. Tony Romano would cross home plate four times on the day with two hits and a walk, Tyler Jesser had 2RBIs and a triple, Gabriel Jarata also had a triple and two RBIs.
"Today was start of a week where we have five games in six days It is an all hands on deck kind of week," said Coach Deharo. "Jaicob Isip got the ball and he was up to the challenge and pitched well the first couple of innings. He has been throwing outstanding for us and today was no different. He also helped himself by getting a double in the first inning."
"The boys are hitting the ball well and having quality at bats. Almost everyone got a hit today."
Wyatt Brandt gets the start tomorrow vs St. Mary's. "I'm confident going into the game with the ball in his hands," said Deharo.

David Madrid started on the mound and went almost the distance. "He was dominant today and had great control of his pitches," said a very pleased Adam Deharo postgame.
Madrid would go 6 2/3 innings striking out five and walking only one. Tracy would get four runs in the first to set the tone as Tyler Jesser doubled to score two.
Leading 8-5 in the 7th, Lincoln got the tying run at first which brought Jaicob Isip to the mound. He would get a fly ball out to end the game and get the save.
"Tommy Hayes went 1-2 for today, but more importantly got his first start behind the plate. He did really well blocking everything in sight. I'm proud of him," said Coach Deharo.
"We only got five hits today, but benefited from nine walks given up by Trojan pitching. We did not chase at the plate," said Coach Deharo.

"We played really well jumping out to a quick lead. Tony Romano did well on the mound, but we just need to tighten the defense around him. I'm pleased with where we are as a team," said Coach Deharo.

Wyatt Brandt was great on the mound today pitching 6 innings, striking 7, and giving up only 3 hits and no runs," said a very satisfied Coach Deharo. "He located his pitches really well." Brandt was relieved by Jaicob Isip in the 7th who dominated the final inning throwing only two pitches to get the first two outs and then striking out the final batter.
Tony Romano was 2-4 at the plate today. "He is seeing the ball really well," said Coach Deharo. Kiet Lau was 1-2, Wyatt Brandt 1-2, Jarata 1-2 with 3 RBIs. "We dominated on the base paths today stealing 10 bags. Overall we did all the little things right today to win a baseball game."

Tracy JV would get all their runs in the 6th inning thanks to numerous walks, hit batters, and errors, but for the rest of the game, Tracy was only able to generate four hits and no further runs. They did place runners in scoring position in the final two innings, but could not generate any runs.
Ronin Contreras pitched a full seven and held back the Flames from taking the lead, but without Bulldog run support, Lodi finally finished the Dogs with a walk and a RBI game winning double in the bottom of the 8th.
