CHS edges CV in AAU play
Ceres High School opened its AAU summer baseball campaign with a 7-6 victory over crosstown rival Central Valley on Friday, June 13 at Art McRae Field.

"I thought we did a pretty good job for our first game," Bulldogs coach Clinton Goblirsch said. "We didn't have a lot of walks and errors. We hit the ball well. That was nice."

Ceres High tallied what proved to be the game-winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning.

David Brazil scored from second on a botched double-play attempt.

Central Valley stranded the potential, game-tying run at second base in the top of the seventh inning as Ceres High pitcher Josh Edwards retired Brian Creek vie strikeout to end the game. The righthander picked up the win in relief. He allowed just one hit with two strikeouts and a walk in two innings.

"He did a great job," Goblirsch said. "He even had to catch the first few innings for us."

Ceres High collected eight hits.

Tyler Cummings finished 2-for-3 from the plate with one run scored and three RBIs.

Martino Bertolotti batted 1-for-1 with a pair of walks and two runs.
