Griz baseball setback hurts more ways than one

By

GARDEN VALLEY — Battling San Juan and Vacaville Christian for second place in the Sierra Delta League, host Golden Sierra fell to the Spartans 14-3 Tuesday in a game replayed from the bottom of the second inning on due to the Grizzlies’ successful appeal from an earlier matchup.

Originally, San Juan thought it had won the previous Garden Valley meeting 17-10 but a Golden Sierra protest was upheld to force the Spartans to return. San Juan almost had a five-inning mercy rule win Tuesday but Jason Piparo drilled an RBI double, and two more runs on a topper off the bat of Brice Andersen prolonged the action another inning.

The Grizzlies were handicapped from the start Tuesday as the Spartans started with an 8-0 advantage. After scoring four runs, San Juan had one foot on the bus before Golden Sierra rallied to force the Spartans to stick around. Joe Schendel had two hits for the hosts.

The Griz felt the loss in another way as their best pitcher, hitter and senior leader, Mark Seaberg, was injured in an outfield collision with Manny Ramirez and is lost for the season with a separated shoulder that required a visit from the Garden Valley Fire Department and a ride with the El Dorado County paramedics.

“Surprisingly, our guys responded (after the injury) and the thing I can say about this team is that nobody quit and we kept our poise and composure so I can’t say enough about that,” Grizzly coach Greg Thompson said. “This was a big game and obviously we put ourselves in a hole by not winning but we’re still in the hunt for the playoffs.”

Monday, Golden Sierra blasted Foresthill 17-7 in nonleague play. Jeff Klahn picked up the win with relief from Kerry Pittman and Piparo. RJ MsKay, Jason Rice and Pittman each had two hits while Klahn, Piparo and Anderson had RBI doubles.

Over spring break, the Grizzlies dropped two-of-three at the Victory Christian Tournament. Despite Seaberg’s 4-for-4 afternoon including a triple and six RBIs, Golden Sierra lost 13-10 to the hosts due to five errors in the first inning that put the Griz down four runs.

Golden Sierra doubled up Esparto 6-3 as Josh Gogna struck out nine and Seaberg another five. In their other game, the Grizzlies fell 15-3 to King’s Academy though it was a 2-1 game in the fifth.
