It was a sunny Friday afternoon for the Carlmont Scots JV baseball team and a not so sunny disposition for the Menlo High School Knights when mercy rule came into play, giving the Scots a victory of 11-1. They currently have an overall 7 wins 5 loses in the season, and they have 6 wins 2 loses in the league.

During the first inning, the Scots scored three runs while Menlo scored zero runs. Tai Takahashi, the pitcher for the Scots, struck out the first batter. At one point the Scots had the bases loaded and they knocked three runners in before getting three outs. The score was at 3-1 Scots.

Whenever Menlo hit the ball into the field, out, or on base, the Scots would throw the ball around to each other before getting it back to the pitcher so they could stay warm in the middle of the game.

However, during the second inning, neither team was successful in scoring and the score sat at 3-1.

Turning it all around, at the top of the third inning, Menlo scored their first and only run. The scots combated it with another run of their own at the bottom of the third. The Scots’ solid pitching prevented Menlo from scoring more than just that one run.

“Tai (Takahashi) pitched really well and our offense came alive today. We did really good,” Tanner Van Why, a freshman, said.

When the fourth inning came around, Menlo had scored zero more runs. The Scots had scored two. This made the score 6-1.

In the midst of the fifth and final inning, Menlo scored no runs yet again. The Scots scored five. Sean McGlaughlin, a sophomore, hit the walk-off run.

“The offense was just really going and the defense backed it up,” said Aidan Kurt, a freshman.

There was a lot of support from parents of the players, various spectators, and other Carlmont students supporting their friends at the game. Each and every Scot got cheered for when they got on base or scored a run.

“We’re improving a lot and our chemistry is a lot better. We’re getting to know each other and it’s really coming together,” said Nikita Yentus, a freshman.
