Cougar baseball outscores Cosumnes Oaks 12-9

Chris Swineford’s tw0-run home run broke a fifth-inning tie and host El Dorado tacked on three insurance runs in the sixth to hold off Cosumnes Oaks 12-9 Thursday in Sierra Valley Conference play. The victory broke a three-game skid for the Cougars in league play.

At one point, El Dorado held a 5-0 lead but the Wolfpack chipped away and pulled even in the fourth on a pair of back-to-back two-run doubles by Matt Koenig and Jacob Clary that chased Cougar starter Nik Rowen.

Swineford’s line drive to dead left field that left the yard made it 9-7 in favor of El Dorado which then added three more the next inning to offset a two-out throwing error in the top of the seventh that plated two runs to tighten the score.

The victory kept the Cougars ahead of Galt in the standings after two losses to the Warriors earlier in the week.

A two-out RBI double from Swineford scored Justin Dillon from first base in the bottom of the first to open the scoring. The home team quickly loaded the bases in the second and nearly let Wolfpack starter Daren Allen off the hook before Dillon dropped a single down the right field line to get Connor Lacher and Matt Deane home.

Allen, a left-hander, nibbled on the outside corners with a variety of offspeed pitches and slowed it down even more with runners on. It happened again in the third but El Dorado managed two more runs on a two-run single by Alex Alvarez.

After Cosumnes Oaks pulled within 5-3, the Cougars, who scored in every inning they batted, went back up on James Frost’s sacrifice fly and Lacher’s bases-loaded walk.

Leading 9-7, El Dorado extended against three ‘Pack pitchers in the sixth on a bases-loaded walk to Justin Dillon, Swineford’s sacrifice fly and Frost’s RBI single. A two-out throwing error on a routine play let Cosumnes Oaks score twice and the visitors had the tying run at the plate when Zack Brown induced a ground out to end the game.

Swineford drove in four runs total; Frost went 4-for-4; Dillon had three RBIs; and junior varsity call-up Alex Alvarez was 2-for-4.
