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
