On Wednesday, March 5, the boys varsity baseball team narrowly lost in its season opener against Aragon 3-4.
Although Los Altos’ defense and pitching were stellar throughout the game and the Eagles got on base many times, they were unable to string together hits.
“We lost because we left a lot of runners on base in scoring position,” sophomore second baseman Paul Myers said.
During the first few innings, things were looking fairly decent for the Eagles. In the first inning, the Eagles were able to score a couple of runs. Senior Chase Eller scored on a passed ball and sophomore Trevor Rodgers smoked a single, bringing in senior Max Wilbur.
Despite solid hitting in the first inning, the Eagles’ bats went into hibernation for a few innings, whereas Aragon’s bats were lighting up. Senior Matt Bicker gave up two runs in his two innings of pitching.
Coming in to relieve Bicker, Rodgers pitched a solid five innings, giving up only two runs. Despite his outing, Los Altos’ bats failed to respond to Aragon’s four runs.
Los Altos faces off against Bellarmine on Friday, March 7. The Eagles’ next home game will be against Homestead on March 15.
