Beyer snapped the Ceres High varsity baseball team's three-game winning streak on Thursday at Art McRae Field.

Freshman southpaw Kyle Barrett gave up just one hit and struck out nine batters during the Patriots' 12-0 victory over the Bulldogs.

"We got smashed," said Ceres coach Tim Williams.

Ceres starting pitcher Derrick Goblirsch lasted just three innings. The senior gave up five earned runs on 10 hits and four walks. He had just one strikeout.

Relief pitcher Jonathan Montez allowed just two hits and fanned four in two innings for the Bulldogs.

Ceres fell to 5-2 overall, 1-1 in the Modesto Metro Conference.

Beyer improved to 6-4 overall, 2-0 in the MMC standings.

"They're one of the best teams in the league," Williams said.

Beyer capitalized on Ceres' shotty defense.

The Patriots scored seven unearned runs on three Bulldog errors.

"We didn't make the plays like we have in the past," Williams said.

In the top of the second inning, Ceres shortstop Luis Malagon threw high to second baseman Jake Garrett on a double-play attempt. The blunder led to four runs.

Beyer scored six runs, including three on an error, in the third inning.

Dwight Nixon belted a two-run homer in the top of the first inning for the Patriots.

Matt Schwark accounted for the Bulldogs' lone hit. He singled. - By DALE BUTLER / Staff Reporter of The Ceres (Calif.) Courier
