If you listened to this week's Juco Pod, then you know this is a big upcoming weekend! So much is going on. And with that we are going to give you a decent look at what is going on across the country for those games and who to follow along or to watch/keep your eyes on.
#13 San Mateo vs #1 Ohlone-Saturday
Coming into the week, Ohlone was sitting on top of California with a perfect 16-0 record, but unfortunately they dropped their first game of the season on Thursday to Canada 8-7.

They are second in Sac Flies (16), At Bats (652), and are third in Homers (14), and Walks (104). All of those numbers have just been in 18 Games. Leading this historic start to the season for them has been the trio of SS Bradley Norton, OF Matt Palomino, and OF Max Heverly. Norton (Rutgers) is hitting the team leading .487 with 3 doubles, 3 triples, a homer, 17 RBI’s with 16 runs scored. Palomino is just behind him hitting .437 while leading the team in at bats with 71.

Div 3: North Lake (2-0)
When looking at Division 3 schools in Texas one that almost ALWAYS gets overlooked is North Lake. This year they are not off to start. Getting blown out in their first 2 series by LSU-Eunice and McCook. They caught fire last week beating Southwest College Prep 14-3 and 14-4. In just the 2 games they played this past week they outscored Mountain View 23-0 (they finished the sweep of them Monday with a 21-8 win. So outscored them 44-9 in 3 games.)
In the first game they took it 12-0. They were led by the duo of Daylan Bower who went 2-4 with a homer, 4 RBI, 1 R, and 2 BB, and Carson Cheaney who was 2-6 with a homer, 3 RBI’s, and 3 Runs.
In their second game, they won 11-0. This game was led on the mound by Brendan Parker who saw 24 batters over 6 innings, striking out 7 of them with just 3 hits and 1 walk. At the plate, Cheaney came out again only going 1-4, but had a double, with 3 RBI’s and scored 2 runs.
CCCAA: Marin (3-0)
Many of you have probably never heard of this NorCal team. Or even know where Marin County is. It is just north of San Francisco and to be honest if there was just one team of the week Marin would take home that honor.
This past week they took on the then ranked #10 San Mateo Bulldogs, and came out with a Sweep. You read that right a Sweep of a top 10 team!
It started Tuesday when they beat the bulldogs 12-4. Marin put up crooked numbers in their 1st four innings. 2 in the first, second, and third, and 4 in the fourth. Then they scored another in the 5 which put the score to 11-4. They put one more up in the 7th to get to the final score. This game was lead by Dionathan Cornet who was 3-4 on the day with 4 RBI’s and 2 runs. On the mound the win went to Zach Tonnerre who went 6 strong innings striking out 7.
The next win came on Thursday when Marin traveled to San Mateo and got it 8-4. This is another game that started of fast and they never looked back. In the first Cornet had an RBI double that drove in Anthony Pomi. The next batter Joey Loveles hit into a Fielder's Choice which drove Jacob Berg in for their second run. In the second they put up a 3-spot thanks to a Bases loaded walk and then a 2 RBI double by Loveles. Their final runs came in the 4th when they put up yet another 3 spot.
The final game of the series took place back on Marins home turf that Saturday. This game was dominated more by the pitchers even though it was a 6-0 win for them. Owen Hamilton got the start and went 6.2 innings with 4 punch outs with a walk and 6 hits. Tyler Shelley came in for the last 2.1 innings struck out 2 with just a walk and a hit.Read more
