NBL baseball: Maria Carrillo routs Casa Grande 5-0


Maria Carrillo didn’t get a hit in six of the seven innings Friday against visiting Casa Grande.

However, in the third, the Pumas strung together six hits and did all their scoring as they defeated the Gauchos, 5-0.

The win enabled Carrillo to maintain its two-game lead in the North Bay League with a 7-0 record. Montgomery is in second at 5-2 while Casa and Cardinal Newman are both 5-3.

The Pumas sent 11 batters to the plate in the third. Keith Wallach had the big blow, a double that knocked in two.

Winning pitcher Peter Hoge and losing pitcher Eric Parnow both had complete games. Hoge also gave up six hits and fanned six without allowing a base on balls.

Parnow struck out five in the first two innings before the wheels temporarily came off.

“Parnow was so dominant in those first two innings, I didn’t know if we’d ever score against him,” Carrillo coach Derek DeBenedetti said. “Then we got a few hits, scored some runs and made it stand up.

“I was proud how our guys played in all facets of the game.”

In addition to Wallach, the other hits in the third came from Clayton Andrews, Austin Martinez, Zach Scott, Jared Brazis and Jo Bynum.

Joey Markham was the only Gauchos player to have a multi-hit game. He was 2 for 3.

Carrillo is 14-2 overall while Casa’s record is now 12-5.


At Windsor, Brandon Clelland’s double in the sixth inning knocked in two runs and broke the game open.

The score was 2-1 going to the bottom of the sixth and Clelland’s hit was part of a four-run uprising.

Pitcher Francisco Sosa went the distance for the Jaguars. Alex March took the loss.

Santa Rosa had its chances. The Panthers loaded the bases in the third but didn’t score and also had two runners picked off first base.

“In most of the games we’ve lost, we have one bad inning,” Santa Rosa coach Paige Dumont said. “This game was the same story.”

The Panthers are 4-12 and 2-6 in league. Windsor improved to 9-8 and 2-6.

Santa Rosa will be in action today when Napa comes to town for a doubleheader beginning at 10 a.m.


At Ukiah, the Wildcats held on to pick up their first league win of the season.

Thanks to an eight-run third inning, Ukiah led 11-3. The Cougars then came back and had the go-ahead run on base in the seventh.

The Wildcats sent 12 batters to the plate in the third and Rancho used three pitchers before getting out of the inning.

Colton Crabtree was the hitting star for Ukiah. He was 4 for 4.

Noah Rogerson led the Rancho offense with three hits.

Casey Gray and Kenny Tallchief had two apiece.

Ukiah is now 1-6 in the NBL and 5-12 overall. Rancho’s record is 4-14 and 3-5.
