Galt baseball was hoping to play Union Mine in one of their league makeup games Friday night, but they were unable to come down the hill.
Enter Edison High School from Stockton. This game seemed like it had the longest first two innings in the history of baseball. The Warriors scored 11 runs in the first two innings and Edison scored 9. The final score was Galt 16, Edison 10.
Edison, using 4 different pitchers, walked 16 Galt batters and only struck out 5 while allowing 8 hits.
Mason Tassano, Aidan Hall and Jayden Gunter scored 3 runs each. Other scores were made by Seth Henke 2, Carson Cagle 1, Anthony Moore 2, Gianni Sterni 2, Nicholas Reid 2 and Tyler Watts 1.
Head coach Jason Evans was glad the team had a chance to play. “We were lucky to get a game in, considering the weather,” said Evans.
“We were fortunate that Edison and their coaching staff have been somewhat of a regular opponent for us every year and they actually prefer to come to Galt, which is nice for us. Our field is amazing right now and I am so happy with how nice it looks, and a lot of that credit goes to coach Mike Tassano.”
Coach Evans took the opportunity to try out a lot of players in the non-league game. “In regards to the game itself, we were fortunate in the fact that everybody for the most part got to play in this game,” said Evans. “Larry Perucca shined as a pitcher in the last few innings, shutting Edison down. Mason Tassano did a great job as a hitter and Seth Henke showed up both offensively and defensively for us. One of the best plays of the year and maybe one of the best plays I’ve seen as a head coach for the last five years was the last play of the game. The ball was hit up the middle and Aidan Hall tracked it down and had to spin to make an off-balance throw to first. The rocket ball that Hall threw was in the dirt and Seth Henke was able to dig it out for the last out of the game. That itself was worth admission in my book.”
