Tracy senior left-handed pitcher Jonah Wesely struck out 18 batters in a seven-inning no-hitter, leading the Bulldogs to a 6-0 win over Chavez on Wednesday, April 17, in Stockton.

The Bulldogs (9-10, 5-2 San Joaquin Athletic Association) backed him up with seven hits, including two singles for sophomore Robbie Ramirez, a double and a single for junior Aaron Denholm and a triple for senior John Jaeger.

The only time batters from Chavez (3-15, 1-7 SJAA) reached base was through four walks.

On Friday, April 12, the Bulldogs collected 16 hits on the way to a 13-2 win at Franklin High, including three for Oscar Moreno and two each for Denholm, Jaeger and sophomore Jacob Alvarado.

Jaeger pitched five innings for the win, allowing one hit, one unearned run and striking out six.

Tokay 5, West 0

The Wolf Pack was unable to get runners around the bases in their Tri-City Athletic League loss to Tokay on Tuesday, April 16, at Zupo Field in Lodi.

West coach Roger Gallardo said the Wolf Pack (3-13, 1-2 TCAL) got nine runners on base but stranded the all, including six in scoring position.

West junior Mitch Cowles had a strong game going through four innings, but Gallardo said the West defense fell apart in the fourth and allowed Tokay (9-11, 2-1 TCAL) to rally for five runs.

Cowles got the loss, giving up six hits, four walks and one earned run.

It follows West’s 6-3 win over McNair in Stockton on April 11.

Sophomore Jack Kelly went 4-for-4 at the plate as West banged out 11 hits. They included a triple from senior Chase Martinez to start the game. Martinez also doubled, and senior Nick Gandall had three base hits and two RBIs.

Senior starting pitcher Kevin Oetken went all seven innings and allowed eight hits and two earned runs.

Kimball 27, Weston Ranch 0

The Jaguars (11-5, 4-3 Valley Oak League) ran away with a lopsided win on Tuesday, April 16, at Kimball High against the Weston Ranch Cougars (0-14, 0-6 VOL).

The game included 13 hits for the Jaguars. In the third inning alone, Kimball strung together four hits, three walks and three Weston Ranch errors to score 11 runs.

Junior Zack Orr highlighted the game with his fourth-inning grand slam.

Senior staring pitcher Logan Finley struck out five batters and gave up two hits in four innings.

Elliot Christian 5, Millennium 0
