SHINGLE SPRINGS — Ponderosa High’s Parker Wright won his pitching duel with Jesuit lefty Chris Loeb Monday afternoon as the host Bruins edged the Marauders 2-1.

The victory was Ponderosa’s first Delta River League win after its tough series last week against Sheldon. The loss dropped Jesuit to 1-3 in league.

Parker allowed just two hits, both in third inning when the Marauders grabbed the lead. The Bruin righthander spotted and mixed his pitches to keep Jesuit guessing and off balance. He struck out four and retired five of the last six Marauders.

Loeb induced Ponderosa to hit the ball on the ground but was betrayed by his infield whose two fourth-inning errors helped the Bruins score twice.

In the fourth, Parker aided his cause when he singled on an 0-2 pitch after Ryan Carey had walked to open the inning and Jesuit bobbled Shea McLinden’s tailor-made double-play ball. After a strikeout, Logan McMahon hit one to the right side the Marauders tried to turn two on but after the force at second as Carey crossed home, the double-clutch throw to first was errant.

McLinden alertly dashed to the plate and got in with a head-first slide to avoid the tag for what turned out to be the winning run.

In the fifth, Logan Ito walked and Carey singled with two out but the Bruins couldn’t add-on.

Ponderosa managed three hits against Loeb, two by Parker. Jesuit’s run in the third came after a single, a hit-and-run single and a fielder’s choice.

In the seventh, Parker served up ground-outs to shortstop Brett Pankow and second-baseman Ito, hit a batter before Matthew Gould squeezed the ball with a catch in center to end it.

The Bruins are in Carmichael today to face the Marauders and close the series Friday in Shingle Springs.
