Instead of 20, the Mount Miguel Matadors tallied 10 runs over consecutive trips to the plate to lead in 20-0 through two innings, romping to a 24-1 avalanche over the host Hoover Cardinals at historic Ted Williams Field on Thursday (Mar. 10).

The contests was halted after four innings with the Matadors (4-2 overall) starting to clear the bench by mid-inning in the second.

“Hoover is very young, inexperienced team,” said Matadors head coach Frank Coit. ” But they played hard right to the end, which is promising for them.”

“They just need time and will improve with the effort they have been showing.”

Pitching for the Cardinals (2-7) issued 16 walks over the four frames ,as Mount Miguel twice batted around the batting order..

Sates & Quotes:

Matt Acevaso (3 RBI):

“The first few games for me were kinda hard tracking the ball because I don’t play the whole off-season. I feel like I can track the ball very well now, I’m way more confident up on the plate.”

“The team and I are started to produce runs and hit the ball, but we will be facing tougher teams as we go. I’m just hoping we produce as the opponents get harder.”.

“Also, we’ve been working very hard during practice trying to get better.”

Steven Gulley (3-for-4, 3 RBI):

“I am pretty excited about the season so far. As for (Thursday), I felt really focused and on pointe with my swings, even during warms.”

“Our team’s attitude on pitches is, ‘Yes, yes, yes,’ meaning, we come up to bat looking to swing until we see that the pitch is not a strike. I had the opportunity with pitches on three of my four at bats hitting to all three fields for basehits, including a double in my third at bat.”

“I don’t look at any team as being inferior, I play hard, and just try to go up to bat and do my best to help my team.”
