The Sonora Wildcats baseball team suffered its first loss of the season in a 6-3 road defeat to El Capitan on Tuesday in Merced.

Sonora grabbed a 1-0 lead after the top of the first frame, but El Capitan proved to be too much, scoring all six of its runs in the first four innings to grab a 6-1 edge heading into the fifth.

The Wildcats made a late rally in the seventh, recording two runs, but that was all the team could generate.

Raymond Albanez, Ryan Dies and Eric Gilliatt had a hit each for Sonora. Gilliatt recorded the team’s only RBI.

Cats tip Skins in battle of defending champions

It maybe early in the Mother Lode League season, but the Sonora Wildcats boys’ golf team proved they’re a forced to be reckoned with.

Sonora defeated the Calaveras Redskins, the defending MLL champs, 225-252 on Tuesday at Mountain Springs to improve its unbeaten league record to 2-0.

Although the Wildcats’ team score of 225 was a season-high at home, they were still able to put forth a winning performance.

“We should have been in the 210 range, but that’s golf,” said Sonora head coach Steve Lee. “You have good days and bad days as individuals and the team has good days and bad days. It was one of those off days, but fortunately, it was also an off day for Calaveras.”

Holding onto a slim one-run lead heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, Sam Burns broke the game wide open for the Summerville Bears baseball team.

With the bases loaded, Burns smashed an RBI single to ignite an eight-run inning en route to leading the Bears to a 16-8 non-league victory over the Waterford Wildcats on a warm, sunny Monday afternoon in Tuolumne.

“At that point, I was just trying to be a hitter,” Burns said. “Trying to get on base and start something up.”

The Bears tallied 15 hits and 10 players delivered at least one in the rout. Case Dailey got the start on the mound and fired 3 1/3 innings while striking out five. Billy Butler and Bryce Farrell led the team from the plate, smacking three hits apiece. 

Farrell followed Burns game-changing strike with a two-run double to keep the momentum on Summerville’s side. After Cole Brewster scored on a bases-loaded walk, Dailey recorded an extra-base hit of his own to drive in two more runs. Elias Hidalgo, a pinch hitter, let fly a single and added to the Bears onslaught by tallying two more RBI.

“We did a lot of things in the fifth,” Farrell said. “We took some walks. We played some small ball and we hit the ball. Those are the three aspects of offense that you really need and we were able to condense that all in one inning, and when you do that, you’re going to score a bunch of runs and that’s what we did.”

10 players get hits in Bret Harte rout of Denair

Ten different players registered a hit and the Bret Harte Bullfrogs baseball team dominated Denair in a 19-2 road win on Friday in a non-league game.

Bret Harte scored nine runs in the first inning, two in the second, six in the third and two in the fourth.

Denair didn’t get on the scoreboard until the bottom of the fourth inning when it scored twice. The game was called after the fifth due to the 10-run mercy rule.

Bears fall to Central Valley in low-scoring battle

The Summerville Bears baseball team fell 2-1 against Central Valley on Friday in Tuolumne.

Central Valley’s Andrew Brekke smashed a two-run single in the top of the first and the Hawks  held on the rest of the way.

Summerville senior Darren Warnock sliced the Hawks’ lead in half when he drove in Trey PetersonWood in the third inning, but that was the only run the Bears generated on eight hits.

“It was a good game,” said Summerville coach Larry Gold. “It was a tough one to lose. It’s kind of a game you want to win and play, but you just want to come out on the winning side.”

Summerville soccer wins tourney by shutout

The Summerville Bears girls’ soccer team scored 14 combined goals and posted four shutouts to capture the Golden Sierra Tournament this past weekend in Garden Valley.

Summerville opened the tourney on Friday with identical 4-0 wins over Victory Christian of Carmichael and Bear River of Grass Valley. On Saturday, the Bears defeated the host team, the Golden Sierra Grizzlies, 4-0 to punch their ticket to the championship game.

In the finale, Summerville topped Union Mine 2-0 to close the tournament with a perfect 4-0 record and improve its preseason mark to an undefeated 5-0.

In the four wins, junior striker Darian Skellenger scored seven goals and Mali PetersonWood had three.

“Any time you can go through a tournament and record four shutouts is a great accomplishment,” said Bears coach Brad Schultz. “This whole team is working hard and they really deserve all the credit for this victory. We have a long season in front us, and some very tough league opponents and this is great way to start the season.”
