The team started fast in the Monday afternoon game on Kennedy's diamond, going up 9-0 in the third inning before Kennedy managed to score five runs against Logan’s starting pitcher Josh Trejo.
“He didn’t have his best stuff,” said Coach John Goulding.
Goulding brought in Brian Ross to relieve Trejo. Ross shut down Kennedy for three scoreless innings, after which Aaron Buenrostro finished the game off. Ross got the victory.
Kennedy’s Mike Ross was the losing pitcher. He was relieved in the fifth inning by Mason Reynolds, who was replaced in the sixth by Austin Greggins. Jeff Loya finished out the game for Kennedy.
Logan’s bats came alive again in the game. In their four league games so far this season, Logan has scored 64 runs while limiting their opponents to just five.
“We’ve been swinging the bats well for a couple of weeks,” said Goulding.
Logan got homers from Alex Murillo and Steven Hurtado. The Colts scored three runs in the second, fifth, sixth and seventh innings. The Colts big inning was the third, when they scored six runs. Colts Vince Mosely had two runs batted in; Manny Loza, David Richter and Anthony Bona each drove in three runs.
“Everybody’s contributing,” said Goulding.
The game was originally scheduled for April 5, but was postponed to Monday, usually an off-day, because of rain.
Goulding said Kennedy’s field was in surprisingly good condition, despite the wet weather.
The Colts were scheduled to play American of Fremont at home today, but rain washed out that plan.
Logan is 4-0 against Mission Valley Athletic League Opponents, and is 6-3 overall.
