FRIARS STAY PERFECT

The FD Friars remain the only undefeated team in IIAAG high school boys baseball after earning another win against the GW Geckos 3-2 Monday afternoon at the Chalan Pago field.

The Geckos nearly tied the game in the top of the sixth when Nate Cruz hit deep into center field along the fences. It looked as if Nate Cruz would earn a two RBI infield homer; however, the Friars defense was quick to react, tagging out runner Kaleb Cruz, running from second base, at home and only allowing Nate Cruz the triple.

In the ensuing play, the Geckos were able to score one more run before the rain hit the Chalan Pago field when Nate Cruz stole home after Friars pitcher Michael Concepcion threw a wild pitch. Just one out into the top of the seventh and after a downpour, the blues called the game, allowing the Friars to take the win.

As the score was tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the third, FD took the lead when Kel Francisco stole home off a wild pitch by GW pitcher Kaleb Cruz.

With the momentum still in their hands, the Friars sent the Geckos back to defense, going three up, three down in the top of the fourth.

In the bottom of the fourth, tallying two outs, FD was able to score another run off an RBI single by Tristan Debold who hit into deep center to bring in Mason Guerrero, giving the Friars the 3-1 edge over the Geckos.

Brandon Muna touched home plate to put the Geckos up 1-0 in the top of the first. Concepcion recorded an RBI single in the bottom of the first, bringing in Debold for their first score of the game.

Concepcion pitched the whole game, throwing six K’s, and gave up four hits and two runs, going 2-for-2 and an RBI single; Debold went 3-for-3 with one RBI.

The Friars now improve to 4-0 while the Geckos drop to 6-3. The Geckos still have games to make-up and games to complete due to the weather conditions.

“Its nothing that we’re going to turn our backs on,” said head coach of the Friars Vince Delgado about the even competition throughout the league. “We’re going to continue playing the way we normally do; however, it doesn’t always go out that way. But we’re going to do our best.”

Guam High 4, JFK 1: Robit Cabe pitched a complete game for the Panthers with eight Ks. Eddie Ray was 3-for-3 to pace the Guam High offense.
