El Dorado comes on to defeat Raiders

Host El Dorado improved to 3-1 in the Sierra Valley Conference in taking the opener of a three-game series with River City 9-4 Monday afternoon.

Michael Green allowed eight hits in six innings and the Cougars overcame a 3-2 deficit with four runs in the fourth and three in the fifth.

“We did not play well in the first half — their three runs were because of our mental mistakes,” El Dorado coach Rusty McDonald said. “We got behind but came right back — that’s the sign of a good team — to hang in and come back. We got guys on, moved them over and had clutch hits to put some distance on them (River City).”

The Raiders struck first with an unearned run in the top of the first inning. Green put zeroes up  in four of the next five, the exception the fourth when a River City pinch-runner avoided two tag-outs on the basepaths — the second at the plate after a nice play by third-baseman Alex Pereira from the seat of his pants. Another run scored on an errant throw.

“My goal was to be effective with my fastball and get ahead in the count,” said Green who improved to 2-0. “I couldn’t control some things that happened (around me) but we won which is what’s most important.”

Matt Smith’s RBI single to drive in Zach Culp  in the Cougars’ first ups tied the score and they went ahead 2-1 on Merlo’s fielder’s choice.

Trailing 3-2, Owen MacKendrick was balked home, Pereira doubled in Adam Washabaugh, Green drove in Pereira with a sacrifice fly and Culp touched after an interference call.

Ryan Rodriguez singled to open El Dorado’s 3-run fifth. In the inning, Washabaugh, Merlo and Smith had RBI base-hits to close the scoring.

“We played well, had good pitching from Mike Green, Louis (Merlo) closed and we made just one error which all helped us win the ballgame,” said Smith who had two hits.
