EL CAJON (2-17-17) — For the second time this season Grossmont lost to Chaffey, 7-4 in a non-league game at Noel Mickelson Field on Thursday (Feb. 16).

Chaffey won the game in the 9th inning on a solo home run by Aaron McCann. Christian Valdez hit a double down the right field line to drive in a run, and Patrick Keller swatted a sacrifice fly to give Chaffey a 7-2 lead.

Grossmont counterpunched with a 2-run homer by ROBERT BOSTEDT in the bottom of the 9th but it was too little, too late.

The Griffins wasted another solid pitching effort by DONAVON McCRYSTAL, who allowed only 2 earned runs in six innings. He struck out 5.
