The Portola High School baseball team, seeded fourth in the Division IV playoffs, eliminated fifth-seeded Biggs 15-0 in five innings last Friday, May 13.
“The boys have worked hard,” said Portola coach Tim Brubaker. “It’s been an interesting year with ups and downs, but the boys’ focus was really good. In playoff baseball, that’s what it takes.”
Pitcher Clinton Morris earned the win for the Portola Tigers, allowing just two hits over five innings and claiming the shutout.
“He battles hard,” said Brubaker. “I was really happy for him.”
