San Mateo Battles Back to Tie Toyonaka to Complete Exhibition

Single runs in the third and fourth and a pair of runs in the fifth brought the San Mateo Sister City All-Star Baseball Team to a 4-4 tie against a combined Toyonaka East and West team, which is how the game would end after reaching the 90-minute time limit. The tie wraps up the five-game exhibition, giving San Mateo a 3-1-1 overall record.

Toyonaka jumped out to an early 4-0 lead after an unearned run in the first, two runs in the second and another lone run in the third.

San Mateo started to claw its' way back in the bottom half of the third. With one out, Zachary Harte got the team's first hit, a double to right center. Ryan Ivers singled in the infield to move Harte to third. With two outs, Jacob Kalaveras drilled a single to center to bring home Harte.

In the fourth, Pablo Ossio led off the frame with another double to right center. Noah Frandsen then singled for his first of two hits on the day, moving Ossio to third who then scored after a Samuel Auyeung's fielder's choice.

San Mateo would come all the way back in the bottom of the fifth. Alika Woon led off the inning with a triple to deep right field. Cynthia Leong then executed a perfect sacrifice bunt to bring in Woon. With one out, Nolan Rau started another rally with a single to center. Ryan Harvey single to center and Ossio then added another base hit to load the bases. With two outs, Frandsen came through with a single to left to drive in Rau for the game's final run.

Guidino Jr. tossed the game's first three innings. He struck out two while walking a pair. Auyeung took the hill for the final two shutout innings.

Tomorrow, San Mateo continues the trip with a sight-seeing excursion to Kyoto.

10 Runs on 8 Hits in the Fourth Opened the Flood Gates to Give San Mateo a Double Header Sweep

10 runs on eight hits opened the flood gates in the fourth inning as the San Mateo Sister City All-Stars took game two of the double header, avenging yesterday's loss to the Toyonaka East squad, 11-2. With the win, San Mateo moves to 3-1 in the five-game series.

San Mateo jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first. Ryan Ivers led off the game with a single. Gabriel Gudino Jr. laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to move Ivers to second. With two outs, Nolan Rau singled past the short stop, bringing home Ivers.

Toyonaka evened the score in the bottom half of the second with an unearned run.

And then the inning of all innings happened in the fourth. Joe Tongamoa, batting for Noah Frandsen, doubled to lead off the frame and scored one batter later on a single to right by Ryan Harvey. Jacob Kalaveras followed with his first of two triples of the game, driving in Harvey. Zachary Harte drew a walk. Ivers followed with a single, bringing in Kalaveres. The bases then loaded after Guidino Jr. was hit by a pitch and were quickly cleared with a Jake Willerup double. Rau then followed with a walk. With Alika Woon at the plate, a wild pitch brought home Willerup. Woon then double right. Pablo Ossio continued the hit parade with a single to right, plating Rau.

Nine runs had scored in the inning before an out had been recorded. With one out in the fourth, Cynthia Leong grounded out. On the play, Woon came in to score the inning's 10th and final run. Kalaveras added his second triple in the inning, however he was stranded there when the inning ended.

The score would remain 11-1 until Toyonaka East added a single run in the fifth to cut the lead to 11-2. That is where the game would end after the time limit.

Frandsen started on the mound, tossing the first three innings. He gave up an unearned run on one hit, striking out one and walking three. Ivers threw the final two frames, surrendering an unearned run on two hits. He struck out one without any walks.

The fifth and final game is schedule for tomorrow at 1 PM after a trip to city hall to meet the Mayor. The weather report shows rain throughout the day. If it does rains, we will attempt to reschedule the game for Wednesday morning.

Fourteen Hits Lead San Mateo Sister City over Toyonaka West

The San Mateo Sister City All-Star Baseball Team's bats clearly had been jet-lagged the past two games and picked a perfect time to break out!  San Mateo exploded for five runs in the first and another four in the second on their way to a 9-0, two-hit victory over the Toyonaka West All-Star team. With the win, San Mateo's record moves to 2-1.

Alika Woon got the bats going in the first with a leadoff triple. He would score on a one-out triple to right by Pablo Ossio. Ossio would score one batter later on a right-center triple by Jake Willerup. Willerup would not stay at thuird long as he was driven home on a single by Will Bonini. Joe Tongamoa walked and Iris Nai walked to load the bases. Noah Frandsen's opposite-field double plated Bonini and Tongamoa for San Mateo's fifth and final run of the inning.

The second inning started in a similar fashion, only this time, Woon added 10 more feet for a homerun. With one out, Ossio singled to start up a new rally. Willerup tripled again to drive home Ossio and quickly scored himself when Bonini doubled to right center. Bonini scored the game's final run on an error by the short stop.

Willerup started on the hill for San Mateo. He pitched four strong innings, allowing a lone infield single in the third while striking out four and walking two. Jacob Kalaveras tossed the final two frames. He also allowed only one hit while striking out four and walking one.

San Mateo has a re-match later today as part of a double header vs. the Toyonaka East where they look to avenge yesterday's, 9-3, loss

Miscues and Big Innings Down San Mateo In Game 2 of Best of 5

The Toyonaka East All-Star team took advantage of the San Mateo Sister City All-Star Baseball Team's errors and added timely hits to beat San Mateo, 9-3, in game two of the five-game exhibition series. San Mateo's record moves to 1-1.

San Mateo tried to jump ahead in the first. With two outs, Jake Willerup and Nolan Rau both singled, but a a fly ball to deep center ended the threat.
Noah Frandsen tripled to right with two outs in the second, but the threat would stall there after a San Mateo strikeout.

Toyonaka exploded with five runs on only three hits in the third to take the lead and never look back. Two errors and two wild pitches aided in the third inning rally.

The lead would grow in the fourth when Toyonaka East added a single run to go ahead, 6-0.

Center fielder, Taylor Kaufman, hit an inside the park home run to right center to put San Mateo on the board in the bottom half of the fourth. Toyonaka now led, 6-1.

Unfortunately, Toyonaka East was not done scoring. They plated three more runs in the fifth to take their largest lead of the day, 9-1.

San Mateo mounted a minor comeback in the fifth. Jack Novello lead off the inning with single and moved to second when Dylan Carion reached base on a one-out error by the second baseman. Iris followed suit with a single of her own to lead the bases. After another San Mateo out, Kaufman drilled a line-drive up the middle, bringing home Novello and Carion. Unfortunately, the scoring threat would end there.

Will Bonini started on the mound for San Mateo. He pitched much better then the score would show. Only one of the five runs he allowed were earned. Cynthia Leong tossed the next two innings. She allowed four runs while striking out one. Ryan Ivers came in to pitch the final frame without allowing any hits.

San Mateo continues the series tomorrow with a double header starting at 10 AM locale time vs Toyonaka West in game one followed by a re-match in game two vs the Toyonaka East squad.
