The Sweetest Thing: Game Four

Awesome pitching by Devin Gilmore and Blake Peters and a timely inside the park, three-run homerun by Rory Beyer helped San Mateo earn its’ first win of the San Mateo/Toyonaka Sister City Exchange series, with a 4-1 win over the Toyonaka East-North Team. Gilmore earned the win after pitching 5 2/3 strong innings, striking out six and allowing one run and five hits before giving way to Blake Peters who earned the save by pitching the remaining 1 1/3 of one-hot ball for the save.

Toyonaka took the early 1-0 lead in the second inning. That lead would stand until the bottom of the fourth.

Third baseman Daniel Stathas led off the fourth inning with a triple. Gilmore, two batters later, singled to score Stathas to tie the score, 1-1.

The 1-1 tie would stand just one more inning.

Center fielder Michael Valdes led off the fifth with a base hit. Shortstop Sulim Bartok followed with a single of his own to give San Mateo base runners on first and second. One out later, catcher, Rory Beyer, sent a pitch over the left fielder which went to the base of the fence. Both Valdes and Bartok hustled around the bases to score. Beyer rounded third and was sent home and scored on a close play at the plate, giving San Mateo its’ biggest lead of the series, 4-1, and Beyer his first homerun.

That lead would be all San Mateo needed as Gilmore and Peters shut the door, assuring San Mateo its’ first victory of the 2007 Toyonaka Baseball Exchange.

Game five concludes the series with a first pitch tomorrow at 10:30 AM at Rose Stadium.
