Carlmont started their game off slowly, but were able to pull it back and got a lot of runs against Lynbrook. The Scots won with a score of 9-2.

Senior Kai Haake put the Scots on the board when he ran in.

Lynbrook came back at their next at bat with a triple to bring one guy in and put another on third. The guy at third got to come in off the next hitter’s RBI.

Junior Evan McClain claimed that Carlmont has a “good pitching rotation and batting order.” These words came true when Scots’s pitcher, Ryan Hogan, managed to end an inning with all of the bases loaded, preventing Lynbrook from scoring.

Sophomore Aaron Pleschner hit a ball to the fence bringing in the man at third and then Pleschner managed to run to make his way around to third base.

Near the end of the game, junior Kyle Barret crushed a ball over the fence for a two run home run.

The Scots overall had a really good game. Coach Vallero said to the team that, “everyone has and opportunity to play and everyone has equal chance to shine.”

McClain expects his team to “play solid, work fluidly as a team, and go far.”
