Gilroy Mustangs

A big fifth inning lifted the Christopher baseball team passed Scotts Valley Wednesday.
The Cougars scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth to top the Falcons 5-2 for its second win in as many games. 
Christopher also scored a run in the bottom of the first and combined for nine hits in the game. 
Brian Easton was solid on the mound, giving up five hits—but no earned runs—while striking out three and walking one in five innings of work for the win. Anthony Bartholic was awarded the save, striking out two and walking one through one inning. 
The Cougars (10-8 overall, 7-6 in league) are battling for control of second place in the Monterey Bay League Gabilan Division. They will take on the Mustangs in a make-up game of their April 1 rainout at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Gilroy.
Mustangs fall to Watsonville
Despite scoring nine runs, the Gilroy baseball team just couldn’t get the job done against Watsonville. 
The Mustangs, coming off the heels of a major upset over San Benito on April 11, lost 15-9 to the Wildcatz Wednesday at home.
Stats and scoring were not yet available.
Gilroy (4-10 overall, 3-9 in league) will play a make-up contest for its April 1 rainout with Christopher at 4 p.m. tomorrow at home.
Cougars swept by Pacific Grove
Though Christopher lost 7-0 to Pacific Grove Tuesday, the score doesn’t fairly reflect the effort.
The Cougars sent two matches into tiebreakers with the visitors, but fell just short of getting the job done.
No. 1 singles Destin Cockcroft won his first set, 6-1, only to lose the next by reverse at 1-6. He forced a tiebreaker match with Breakers No. 1, Levi Thompson, but ultimately lost 10-3. 
No. 3 Dominic Nguyen also forced a third set going 2-6, 6-4 through the first two, but lost the third 10-3. 
No. 2 Geoffrey He kept his match close, but lost 4-6, 3-6 as did the No.1 doubles team of Jesus Velasquez and Tom Madruga who ended up losing 5-7, 4-6. 
The No. 2 doubles team—Isaiah Rugerio and Samual Fernandez—also lost 2-6, 4-6 as did the No.3 team of James Abundis and Alex Bardrick with a 5-7, 1-6 final. 
The No. 4 singles match was lost by default.
Christopher (2-8) will host York at 4 p.m. today.
