Let's Pretend This Never Happened: Game Three

A solo homerun in the top of the fifth by Daniel Stathas was not enough as the San Mateo Toyonaka Exchange team dropped game three to the Toyonaka West team, 12-5, in a time-shortened game-one of a double header on Sunday afternoon.

San Mateo took their first lead of the series in the first inning. Pitcher Aldo Severson led off the inning with a single and scored three batters later when designated hitter Matt Helbig singled up the middle. That lead would only hold until the Toyonaka West team came to bat. They plated seven runs in the first and one more in the second.

San Mateo chipped away in the third inning when relief pitcher Michael Valdes led off the inning with a walk. He scored five batters later when catcher Tyler Storozynsky had an infield single to score Valdes from second. Helbig would also score in the inning after he reached on a hit-by-pitch and scored on a fielder’s choice.

Toyonaka scored four more runs in the third to take a 12-3 lead. San Mateo managed just one more run before the game was called on account of a two-hour time limit. Stathis lead off the fifth and sent a towering fly ball well over the left field fence for a solo home run, giving San Mateo their fourth and final run in game one.
