San Mateo Battles Back to Tie Toyonaka to Complete Exhibition
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.
