MHS’ 1-0 win is the eighth-straight for team

Monache High School baseball extended their winning streak to eight with a 1-0 win over rival Porterville in an East Yosemite League game Saturday on the road.

The Marauders’ Richie Bailey got the win on the mound after pitching seven shutout innings. He allowed just six hits and three walks while striking out 13 batters looking. Jose Segura was Monache’s top hitter after going 2-for-3 with a double and the team’s lone run scored in the fourth inning. Sullivan Focke also had a double.  

EDITOR'S NOTE: Monache baseball has won eight games straight, not seven as reported in the print edition of The Recorder.

Five runs in the sixth edges Strathmore over Porterville

They may not have played like it from the start but there was no quit in Strathmore High baseball Tuesday afternoon.

The Central Section Division VI Spartans (5-4) faced a tall task at home against the Div. II Panthers of Porterville (1-6-1), but a big five-run sixth inning gave Strathmore a comeback win they'll be feeding off over the next few days.

Means a lot to come back and win,” SHS junior, Nate Tree, said. “We’re happy and excited. We got the momentum with us. So we'll carry the momentum into the next game and start right where we left off.”

Down 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth, Tree played a big part in getting the team back on track with a hit to left field that scored Angel Topete and tied the game.
