Dragons blanked by Casa in baseball, rout El Mo in softball, fall to Windsor in golf
Senior Sam Alton pitched a complete-game seven-hitter and allowed only two runs, but the Dragons, unfortunately, could muster only two hits and suffered a shutout SCL loss to Casa Grande yesterday afternoon at Arnold Field.
Playing their longtime Sonoma County League rival at their Arnold Field home, with their ace on the mound and riding a three-game win streak to open the SCL season, seemed to distinctly favor Sonoma Valley High School’s varsity baseball boys yesterday afternoon.
But what is seemed, and what is realized, don’t always coincide, which is what happened to the Dragons and their top pitcher, senior Sam Alton, who were out-dueled by Casa Grande and its strong southpaw Alex Perez to the tune of 2-0 shutout loss.
With only a 2-1 lead after a slow start yesterday afternoon in Forestville, Sonoma’s softball girls supported junior Megan McNeilly’s winning pitching effort by putting on a hit parade that led to five runs in the top of the fifth inning and four more runs in the top of the seventh en route to an 11-1 SCL rout of El Molino.
At the Windsor Golf Club yesterday afternoon, Sonoma’s boy golfers dropped a 233-259 SCL decision to Windsor.
