Titans move to tie at top of league
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The John F. Kennedy Titans move into a tie at the top of Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) baseball with the Washington Huskies, both holding 5-1 records.
After years of rebuilding and many ups and downs along the way, Titan baseball is once again competitive, holding the top spot with the Washington Huskies. A turning point of this game Ð and maybe the season - arrived for the Titans when they scored two runs in extra innings on April 11th, beating the Newark Memorial Cougars 5-3. The Titans started their attack early, scoring the first run of the game in the first inning, followed by two more in the fourth and the final blows in the eighth. Cal Stevenson has not only had a great year pitching, but also been a weapon with the bat all year. On the mound, he held the cougars to just three runs for the day. He received the support of his teammates including Mark Wiscombe, Nick Medina and Sean Road, each with two hits; Medina added the biggest punch to the offensive with two RBIÕs.
The Cougars did not go down without a fight as they put together a three run rally in the fifth which was a bit short; final score: Titans 5, Cougars 3. Newark now falls to 4- 2, one game behind the leaders.
