Prep Roundup: May 18

Christopher ended the regular season on a high note, beating Monterey 7-5 Thursday at home. 
Seniors Makio Duyao and Josh Wheat shined on Senior Night for the Cougars. Both had two hits, drove in two RBIs and scored a run in the game. 
Senior pitcher Bryan Easton was stellar on the mound to get the win. He tossed five and two third innings and allowed three runs on five hits while striking out two and walking two. Anthonee Bartholic was awarded the save, allowing two runs on two hits over an inning and two thirds of work. He also struck out one. 
Monterey jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first, but Christopher responded with two runs in the bottom of the second to take the lead. 
Both teams notched a run a piece in the third before the Cougars added three more in the fourth to take a 6-2 lead. 
Each side added another run in the fifth and Monterey scored two in the sixth for the final. 
The win helped the Cougars (15-11 overall, 11-7 in league) claim the No. 3 seed for the Central Coast Section Division I tournament. They will host Monta Vista, the No. 14 seed, at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Gavilan College.
Mustangs beat Salinas in finale
Gilroy will miss the Central Coast Section tournament, but it ended the regular season with a ‘W’.
The Mustangs beat Salinas 5-4 in Thursday’s season finale at Hartnell College. 
Salinas scored first, notching two runs in the bottom of the first. Gilroy responded with five runs in the second and held off the Cowboys as they scored a run in both the fourth and sixth innings. 
Senior Justin Hale got the win on the bump. He allowed four runs, three earned, on nine hits, walked one and struck out seven through seven innings of work.
Gilroy finish the season with a 7-20 overall record, 4-16 in league.
