American River College fell to #7 ranked Santa Rosa Junior College 4-2 in 10 innings on Thursday at Beaver Field. The Beavers were down 1-0 in the 6th when CF AJ Phillips (Visions) led off with a double down the right field line. After a wild pitch moved him to third, 2B Steve Mercado (Antelope) singled Phillips in to tie the game. 3B Austin Call (Oakmont) then perfectly executed a hit & run, singling through the right side to move Mercado to third with no outs. After RF Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) struck out Call appeared to get picked off of first but in the run-down Mercado was able to steal home and put the Beavers up 2-1. The Beavers had a chance to add to the lead in the 7th but C Wade Brill (Woodcreek) was thrown out at the plate trying to score on an overthrow of home.
Santa Rosa tied the game in the 8th as they loaded the bases with one out off of starter Matt Gunter (Bella Vista). Patrick Upchurch (Rancho Bernardo) got an out on the first pitch, a ground out in which Steve Mercado made a diving play up the middle and was able to get the force out at 2nd, but the tying run scored. The Bear Cubs had runners at 2nd and 3rd in the 9th but Upchurch was able to strike out the final batter of the inning. Santa Rosa did load the bases again in the 10th after a couple of singles and a fielders’ choice in which they bunted back to the mound and the beavers were content with keeping the go ahead run from scoring. After Upchurch struck out the next batter, Santa Rosa center fielder Matt Lococo singled through the left side to score two which was the deciding margin in the game.
The Beavers get back on the bus tomorrow to go to Santa Rosa for a 2:30 game, the final game in the series.
