BLUE-tiful Baseball Day for Frosh Dons in Moraga

Bouncing back hard from a 3-1 loss in the first game of a doubleheader, Acalanes won game two, 8-3

School rivalries are the backbone to any high school sporting event, especially in Lamorinda. Ultimately, rivalries provide for fun and spirited games. Victory is always sweet, but it is even sweeter when it is against a rival team. For the day, the Acalanes Dons collected a total of 9 runs and the Campo Cougars took only 6. We call that a BLUE-tiful Day!

Game 1: We don’t lose. We either win or learn.

Both teams were strong on the mound on Saturday, but Campo was just a little bit stronger at the plate in game one. Mason Michlitsch started on the mound.  Tyson Bates and  Joseph Castelli  entered the game from the bullpen, throwing two and two-thirds innings and one-third of an inning respectively.

Cougars won 3-1. The Freshman Dons lost despite out-hitting Campo seven to five.
