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."

PLAYOFF GM 1 - BIGGEST WIN OF THE YEAR

TRACY 3 - BEAR CREEK 1

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Tracy 1|0|0|2|0|0|0| 3| 6| 3|

Tracy advances to the 2nd round of the CIF-SJS Div 2 baseball playoffs by beating #4 Bear Creek 3-1.  Kyle Mulhern pitched a complete game 6 hitter giving up no earned runs while striking out 7 Bruins.  Marcus Corso homered in the first and Brentley Bergmann was 2-3 with 2 doubles.  Logan Fife, Dax Dibble and Mulhern each had hits.


Tracy put the pressure on the Bruins very early in this game as Marcus Corso homered to left as the 2nd batter of the game.  "This was such a critical play in the game," said head coach Vic Alkire.  "It really put the air in our sails and seemed to stun the Bruins instantly."  Tracy carried a 1 run lead into the bottom of 3rd until Bear Creek evened the score with a single and run scoring double.   Tracy would take the lead once again in the top of the 4th as Brentley Bergmann connected for his 2nd double of the game.  Kyle Corona was hit by a pitch .  Dax Dibble laid down a squeeze bunt to score Bergmann.  Corona would eventually score on a steal by Dibble to 2nd.  


"Kyle Mulhern was the man of the hour for us today," said Alkire.  "The game was tight and stress filled all the way through and he did not blink.  He was really dealing today and had a calm composure about him even if we created an error.  He just executed afterward to limit the damage.   Kyle Corona played a great supporting role behind the plate as he blocked many balls in the dirt and threw out the only two steal attempts presented by the Bruins.   The two Kyle's were a winning recipe for us today," said Alkire.


Alkire also acknowledged the offense and defense of Brentley Bergmann.  "He led off the 2nd and 4th with doubles and scored in the 4th.  He did a nice job at 3rd base with his fielding too."


The Bulldogs are playing loose and with the house money as they now travel to Fair Oaks looking to cause another upset.

"I thought West outplayed us today," said Coach Alkire.  "The game seemed more important to them and they came out much more aggressive than us.  When they had some opportunities, they got the key hits.  We had the bases loaded a couple of times and never got the base hit we needed.   They seemed a little more hungry than us today.   They had a chance to go to the playoffs today.  The first time in a long time. but Lincoln won their game."


"I thought Drew Giannini did a nice job on the mound for us.  Blake Ornellas had a lot of pitches racking up and Drew really settled things down taking us into the 7th inning."

WEST 1 HITS TRACY

WEST 6 RUNS,  4 HITS, 0 ERRORS

TRACY 0 RUNS, 1 HIT, 2 ERRORS


The common theme through the Tracy lineup Tuesday was "2 at bats, 0 runs, 0 hits."  Only Ryan Dzoan was able to break up a no hitter thrown by Diego Morales.    Morales who went the full seven innings for the Wolf Pack kept Tracy from mounting any threats.  


Devin Williams was the Tracy starter and the first 5 innings were played in just 1 hour at a very quick defensive pace.   In the 6th two infield errors and a squeeze play provide West with 3 runs.  In the 7th West put three more on Tracy with a three consecutive hits.   Williams deserved a better fate as he had only allowed 2 base runners through 5 innings before the errors and small ball kicked in.  Williams gave up no hits in his 6 innings.  Williams was relieved by Nick Ditlevson and Robert Crivello. 


Coaches Press Conference ----  "Through 5 innings there was just a real good pitching duel," said Coach Vic Alkire.  "Williams and Morales pretty much matched each other pitch by pitch until West broke out in the 6th inning.  Williams worked through a couple of infield errors.  He pitched 6 innings without giving up a hit but found himself trailing 3-0 which is pretty unusual in baseball."


"I thought Morales was excellent for West with his 1 hitter complete game," said Alkire.  "He kept us off balance all day.  We did not have any good swings against him."


In an interesting tidbit that Coach Alkire dug up, the West win today was the first against Tracy since March 5th 2010.  Tracy had won 17 in a row.   In that March 2010 game, Tracy lost 12-8 in 5 innings.


Blake Ornellas will get the start tomorrow in the final regular season game at West.

"Kyle Mulhern did not have his best stuff today but I really liked the way he competed and got out of several jambs," said Coach Vic Alkire.   "He was able to give us 5+ innings without being on top of his game.  I like how he is  always a battler when he is on the hill for us."


Alkire also had a couple more compliments to throw towards his Bulldogs.  "Joey Corso came off of a really tough outing last Friday.  Today he came in to pitch in the 6th with two runners on and no outs and got us out of that jamb with no runs.  in 7th he cleaned it up for us to get the win and the playoff spot.  It is nice to see him come right back out there and get on the horse."    


"In regards to hitting, Cameron Pereria had a good game.  Brentley Bergmann also connected well.  Those two just picked right up where they left off last Friday versus Lodi.    I was also impressed with the batting debut of freshman Drew Giannini.  He played some 2nd base for us and had 2 hits."


Alkire announced that Devin Williams will be the starter for the final home game on Tuesday.  


Four seniors players and a student assistant will be recognized for our Senior Day.

LODI 7 RUNS, 6 HITS, 1 ERROR



The Bullodgs lost on Friday and were swept for the week by Lodi.  Coach Alkire still saw some positives in today's bottom of the 7th walk off loss.   "I like the fact that our #3 and #4 hitters Pereira and Bergmann were a combined 4 for 7 with 2 RBIs, a double and home run.  They had been struggling some so it was nice to see them come out swinging and having success.  I liked our attitude and I thought we fought hard today, That team atmosphere we exuded today is an improvement over the past couple of weeks and we need that focus and fight going into our critical games next week against West."   


The Bulldogs finish league with three in a row starting Monday at West.  Kyle Mulhern will get the start.  Don't forget Senior Day on Tuesday at our home field.

"We are in a scoring drought," said Coach Vic Alkire.  "Bulldog hits are hard to come by right now.  We have had 4 hits in the last 3 games."


"I thought our pitching was pretty good today to hold a high octane team to just four runs.  We should have been in the ball game, but our offense did not allow us to compete.  We have to almost be perfect with our pitching in order to be competitive at this time in our season."

We knew Lodi had an excellent record, but today we found out what a solid team they really are," said Coach Vic Alkire.   "They can really hit the ball and their pitcher was very solid and did a good job taking on our batters.  Brently Bergmann's double was our only hit and it drove in our only run.   Defensively we were not very sharp, but Nick Ditlevson made one of the nicest diving catches down the line that you will ever see in a high school baseball game."

The Bulldogs (6-3) could only muster two hits today which caused them to slip in the TCAL standings behind St. Mary's (6-3).  "I thought our pitching was pretty good today with the exception of the nine walks," said head coach Vic Alkire.  "Even with an elevated number of walks, that did not directly impact this game other than running the pitch count up.    Joey Corso did another excellent job in relief just as he has done all year long.   He has pitched 19 innings giving up just 13 hits and 2 runs (1 earned), with 12 strikeouts.  He has been good every time we have asked him to take the mound for us this year.  This week alone he has thrown 7 2/3 innings with no runs," said Coach Alkire.   Corso's ERA this season is an impressive 0.37

"Our pitching was the key to the game," said Coach Vic Alkire.  "Devin Williams came out and gave us five good innings.  He got into trouble one time in the 2nd inning giving up 4 runs, but other than that he really held the Rams in check.  It was his longest outing of the year and by far his best," said Alkire.  Nick Ditlevson came in for relief in the 6th and 7th and he had not pitched much this year.  "He threw strikes and did an excellent job.  He looked calm and cool as if there was no pressure," said Alkire.  He faced eight batters and gave up just one hit.   "We had told both of them yesterday that they would see mound time and that did not give them much time to think about it."

 

"It was rewarding to see our bats come alive.  We have been inconsistent this year swinging the stick but today we had production up and down the lineup with limited strikeouts."   Dax Dibble had an inside the park home run today as the St. Mary's left fielder fell down and could not recover to retrieve the ball.

Tracy finally got in their makeup game from April 5.   The Bulldogs were cruising behind Joey Corso but late inning walks from relief pitchers allowed Tokay to tie the game and send it into extras.   Ryan Dzoan was key to the extra inning victory hitting a double to score two.


"Joey Corso was just outstanding on the mound," said head coach Vic Alkire.  "He gave up one hit, had no walks and was keeping the ball low in the strike zone.  After five innings and with a 3 run lead, we decided to rest his arm.   It was his best outing of his high school career," said Alkire.


"We swung the bats pretty good today.  Not the best, but a lot better than recently when we had been striking out more and trying to pull the ball to left field too much.   We got the ball in play and also caught some breaks with some infield hits and some bloop singles.    Coach Alkire complimented the approach Ryan Dzoan took in the 8th when he hit a line drive to the wall in right center to score two.   


"Ultimately today, the key to victory was the great pitching performance of Joey Corso," said Alkire.

"We hit the ball pretty good today with seven hits and some good approaches at the plate," said Coach Alkire.  "Logan Fife and Devin Williams had four of those hits and did a nice job at the plate.  I like what I saw out of our young pitchers today.   Matt Canada, Jacob Shrout and Chris Francis made their varsity debut each throwing at least one inning.  They all did a nice job for their first outing, especially Canada.  He was presented with a difficult relief  situation in the first inning and he was quickly able to stop the bleeding," said Alkire.


The Bulldogs travel back to Sacramento for the final game of the tourney on Thursday at 10 a.m. vs Petaluma.  The bus will depart Tracy High at 7:30 a.m.   The starting pitcher will be freshman Drew Giannini.

"We did hit the ball good in game two," said Coach Vic Alkire.  "Heritage made some good defensive plays on us in the outfield that would have scored multiple runs for us.  We did have 10 hits and our bats came alive in the afternoon.  Ornellas did a nice job for us on the mound giving up just 1 unearned run.  We had 2 crucial errors in the 5th that led to Heritage taking the lead."

VARSITY FINALLY FINISH GAME WITH A WIN

TRACY 5 - TOKAY 1

TRACY 5R, 10H, 0E

TOKAY 1R, 5H, 1E


Saturday, April 13

The game that was originally scheduled for April 1,  started on April 5, was finally concluded on April 13. with Tracy getting the win.   Tracy resumed play in the 2nd inning with the bases loaded and nobody out.  The first Bulldog batter popped up on the infield, and then the second batter hit into a double play.  Tokay came off the field elated knowing that the Bulldogs had squandered a great opportunity.  Marcus Corso then took the mound and kept Tokay in check until the Bulldog bats came alive.    "It was a good clean game and was the complete opposite of Friday which had been played so sloppy," said Coach Vic Alkire.   "Today we did not walk anybody, had no errors, and made all the plays defensively.  When you get good pitching, fielding and ten base hits, you have the recipe for success."  


"Marcus Corso was back on the mound for the first time since March 9th.   We have missed not having him on the mound for 5 weeks of our season.  It was a highlight to have him back and be so effective." 


Offensively coach highlighted much of his team.  "We had 9 different hitters get base hits."

Kyle Corona Guns Down a Trojan

LINCOLN GETS FIRST WIN, TRACY GETS FIRST LOSS

LINCOLN 11 - TRACY 6

Lincoln 11R, 10H, 2E

Tracy 6R, 7H, 3E


"When you give up 10 hits, 7 walks, and make 3 errors your chance of winning is really diminished," said Coach Vic Alkire.   "It was a frustrating game, mainly because we had a lot of opportunities to stop them defensively, but we had 3 crucial errors.  On the other hand we had a lot of offensive opportunities but never could get the big hit.  In one inning we had bases loaded with nobody out and 1 run in already and we just scored only one run after that.  That was a big opportunity lost."  


Coach Alkire praised the play of Sophomore Kyle Corona.  "Kyle has been such a positive force offensively and defensively.  In the first game this week vs Lincoln he threw out their first two base runners, he then nailed two on Thursday, and two again today.  He is really working on his craft and is getting better and better.  He went 2-3 on Tuesday,  2-4 on Thursday, and 2-3 today.   A 6-10 week and gunning down 6 base runners makes you our player of the week."
