Eagles topple Redwoods

Feather River College baseball has been swingin’ and throwin’ for months. “This is our 23rd game,” said FRC Athletic Director Merle Trueblood as he watched the Eagles win March 5 in their first game with the Redwood Corsairs, 17-3.

Infielder Jerry Thomas was the most successful Eagle that game crossing home plate four times.

Two runs each were scored by Eagles shortstop Peter Mendazona, first baseman Braden Del Carlo, third baseman Brad Madison and centerfielder Michael Boomgaarden. Right fielder Eric Spencer, infielder Ryan Bolf, designated hitter Haydn Brown, catcher Jake Christianson and third baseman Garrett Damico scored single runs.

Right fielder Cooper Kitrel hit three RBIs; Bolf, Del Carlo and Brown hit two each. Thomas, Mendazona, Boomgaarden and Damico all hit an RBI.

Haydn Brown hit a home run, Madison hit a triple, and Thomas hit a double. Thomas and Del Carlo successfully stole a base.

Myles Davis pitched seven innings for the Eagles striking out three Corsair batters of 28 faced. Cody Lorenzini struck out four batters in two innings facing seven batters.
