The Acalanes Varsity baseball team shocked Bishop O’Dowd with a 9-1 victory on Friday. The Bishop O’Dowd Dragons, in their home opener, put UCLA-bound pitcher Joe Ross on the mound up against our Dons, amid a crowd of major league scouts. Acalanes was undaunted both by the number of scouts in attendance and the Dragon’s ace. The Dons got their first three batters on base against Ross, with hits by Connor Hornsby and Paul Nork. Ross threw as hard as 94 miles per hour on the night, however the Dons scored 3 runs on 7 hits off of Ross, including 2 doubles by Spencer Henderson. Henderson was also stellar on the mound, letting up only 1 run in 6 innings pitched. AJ Welsh added an RBI double in the 7th, followed by a 2 RBI single by Evan Heptig. In total the Dons finished strong, scoring 6 runs in the 7th inning. Andrew Merken closed out the game in the bottom of the 7th without letting in a run.
JV Baseball also won (at home), 14-2, thanks to a strong pitching performance by Neil Lang, and stellar games at the plate by Tyler Supple and Ryan Myers.
