Boras Classic

Oak Ridge 9, Castro Valley 1 — The Trojans rebounded from their tournament-opening loss to Dougherty Valley behind the solid pitching of Tommy Hummer and nine hits from the offense. Hummer went six innings, gave up six hits and struck out three. Chris Roppolo and Tanner Ales each went 2-for-3 with a double and Mickey Meinhofer was 2-for-4 with a double. Connor Davis got the final three outs in the seventh.
Oak Ridge 4, Dougherty Valley 6 — The Trojan bullpen gave up three, seventh-inning runs to negate Oak Ridge’s 4-3 lead with three outs left and spoil the effort of starting pitcher Ryan Sullivan who scattered six hits over six innings and departed with the one-run lead. The loss to the San Ramon team at Dan McAulliffe Field on the campus of CSUS prevented a rematch with No. 1 ranked Elk Grove. Logan Marston tripled and doubled and drove in a run while FP Santangelo and Meinhofer had RBIs.
Oak Ridge 5, Del Oro 8 — The Trojans lost a 5-3 lead when the Eagles scored five runs in the top of the sixth Wednesday. Del Oro avenged an 4-0 loss at Oak Ridge earlier this month. Meinhofer, Alec de Watteville, Logan Denholm and Roppolo drove in runs for Troy while Marston scored twice. Davis, Austin Vail, Ales and Brogan Cooper shared pitching duties.

Sure West Tournament

Union Mine 6, Lincoln 13 — The Zebras scored eight runs in the second inning Tuesday to erase a 4-1 deficit. For the D’backs, R.J. Blake did pitch four innings of one run, three-hit ball in relief. Offensively for Union Mine, Sean Tow went 3-for-4 with a double and RBI; Blake and Brenden Hunter were each 2-for-3 and scored twice; and Jake Horn had two hits and an RBI.
Union Mine 6, Valley Christian 13 — Ten errors resulting in six unearned runs cost the D’backs Wednesday. Union Mine led 4-3 before the Falcons scored six times in the third inning. Nate Brown went 3-for-4 for the D’backs; Tow tripled and doubled; John Creason had a home run and two RBIS; and Brian Smith doubled. Creason and Charles Simpson pitched for Union Mine.

Nonleague

El Dorado 1, Christopher 3 — The Cougars played well Wednesday just came out on the short end in a loss at Gavlin College. Tim Hinrichs RBI single plated Chris Swineford for the early lead but Christopher tied the game in the fourth and scored the go-ahead runs in the seventh. El Dorado left the bases loaded in the second and third and had second-and-third on the bases in the fourth and fifth.
“We just didn’t get the big hit but we played very well,” Cougar coach Rusty McDonald said. “It was a very good game, we played a good team and it’s one of the games — though we lost — I had no problem with that because like I told the kids, ‘if we can play like that with that kind of enthusiasm we’ll be fine.’”
Nick Bonniksen allowed six hits in five and two-thirds innings and Zachary Terry got the final out.
El Dorado 6, Greenfield 12 — Seven overall errors and nine runs in the last three innings Tuesday doomed the Cougars in their second game of their spring break road trip. El Dorado was within 3-2 at one point but gave up three in the bottom half of the fifth inning, three in the sixth and another three in the seventh. Offensively for the Cougars, Matt Smith was 3-for-4 with a double and Owen MacKendrick, Bonniksen and Michael Weston each had two hits. Weston started on the mound for El Dorado and Terry and James Alvarez also pitched.
