CARMICHAEL — Matt Poulin’s two-out, two-run double broke an eighth-inning tie and Jacob Bist worked out of a two-on, one-out situation for the save as visiting Ponderosa stunned second-ranked Jesuit 9-7 Monday in the first of a three-game Delta River League series.

The Bruins started well as Poulin (3 RBIs) doubled in Matthew McBride (4-for-5, two doubles, 2 RBIs) and Poulin scored on an error for an early 2-0 lead. The Bruins extended to a 5-1 advantage as Ian Boyle’s triple, Matthew Gould’s single and McBrides’s double were key hits in a three-run second.

“We got on them right away. Their pitcher challenged us with fastballs and we jumped on him,” Ponderosa coach Tyler Graham said.

The Marauders tied the score in the third and went ahead in the fourth to take the wind out of the Bruins’ sails after they led early.

“I thought ‘well, we hung with them for a while’ but we stayed strong, stayed positive and stayed the course,” Graham said.

Pinch runner Parker Wright was key in Ponderosa taking the lead in the seventh. Trailing 6-5, Jesuit couldn’t turn a potential game-ending doubled play and the Bruins tied it and went ahead as Wright kept coming around third base to score.

In the eighth, Brett Pankow singled and Joe Silvestri reached on an error to set the stage for Poulin. In the bottom half, Bist induced a groundout and pop out to end a Marauder threat.

Boyle also doubled for Ponderosa. The teams play again in Shingle Springs today.
