Ponderosa stumbles against Marauders

SHINGLE SPRINGS — Two days after beating Jesuit 9-7 to start a three-game series, Ponderosa  fell flat last Wednesday in a one-sided 19-3 loss to the visiting Marauders — the game called after five innings due to the mercy rule.

Jesuit sent 18 men to the plate in the top of the third inning and scored 14 of them to turn a 5-3 game into a blowout.

“We just let the ball fall over the plate and they hammered it. And then we kinda got scared of contact so we walked a bunch of guys. We walked a bunch of guys so they start leaning over the plate and hammer one over the fence to turn it into a sloppy game real fast,” Bruin coach Tyler Graham said.

Joe Sivestri got the start for the Bruins, and allowed an early triple to Julian Barron that scored Lorenzo Arcuri as the visitors took an early 1-0 lead. Ponderosa responded to take a 2-1 lead when Troy Zeier’s sharp liner off of a curveball from Chris Loeb just evaded a leaping third basemen to score two runs.

Jesuit tied the game in the top of the second as Andre Gregory scored on a fielder’s choice, and a sacrifice fly gave the Marauders the lead back. No trailing, Matt Gould’s suicide squeeze brought a run home as the Bruins hung tough, trailing 5-3 headed into the top of the third.

The Marauders took control, and then some, in the top of the third as Andy Snow launched a home run over the left field fence and Gregory cracked a grand slam. Hampered by walks, the Bruins needed four pitchers to get out of the inning trailing 19-3.

Gould started out of the bottom of the fifth with a single and Ponderosa had runners at the corners with only one out looking to score for the first time since the second inning. But Matt Poulin’s hard grounder was right to the Jesuit shortstop for a textbook 6-4-3 double play to end the game.

The loss dropped Ponderosa’s record to 5-15 (2-6 Delta River League) with series with Pleasant Grove and Oak Ridge to end the year.

“We know we can hang with these guys, we know we can play baseball with them. We were right there for the first couple innings, and if we play our game it’ll be a good one. There’s a lot of building ground for us; we’re a young team,” Graham said.
