Granite Hills tops Farmersville 13-6

Granite Hills High School baseball opened East Sequoia League play with a 13-6 win over Farmersville at home on Monday.

Alexis Bedolla picked up the win for the Grizzlies (3-4, 1-0 ESL) on the mound. The junior went five innings and allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 batters. 

“Alexis is our MVP so far,” GHHS head coach Al Garcia said. “He’s probably our best hitter last year as well. And this year, he’s just carrying on, and he’s our best pitcher so far. We haven’t got much work with other kids, but he keeps us in the game.”

Bedolla also led the team at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a double, three RBIs and three runs scored. 

Six named to All-ESL 1st, 2nd teams

A total of six local baseball players made the All-East Sequoia League first and second teams, with Strathmore, Granite Hills and Lindsay High School getting two selections each.

All-ESL selections for the Spartans (16-10-1, 8-4 ESL) are junior pitcher, William Reece, on the first team and senior infielder, Josue Topete, on the second team. Head coach, Thad Reece, was also named the Coach of the Year.

Granite Hills High School placed third with a 4-1 win over Woodlake at the Rob Robinson Tournament hosted by Woodlake High School Wednesday.

Abraham Gabinete threw a complete game, allowing only one unearned run and gave up just one hit. Gabinete also struck out eight. The defense played really well to back up a good pitching performance, said GHHS head coach Al Garcia.

Offensively Gabinete also led the way going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two stolen bases. Christian Chavez was 2-for-3 with a run scored and two stolen bases. Alexis Bedolla was 1-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI. 

“The last three wins have kept our season alive, we are just trying to get in the playoffs then anything can happen,” Garcia said.
