Reyes, Bulldogs beat East Union

Ceres High varsity baseball player Hector Reyes did it again.

The senior pitched effectively and helped his own cause at the plate. Reyes fanned nine batters and went 3-for-4 with four RBIs during the Bulldogs' 12-5 win over East Union on Thursday at Agostini Field.

"He ended up throwing really well for us," said Ceres coach Tim Williams. "And the offense gave us a pretty good cushion."

Reyes surrendered just two runs and walked three in six innings. He didn't allow a base hit until the third inning.

"His changeup was working," Williams said.

Nick Eudy drove in two runs and Brian Borges went 3-for-5 with two doubles for the Bulldogs, who improved to 4-1 overall. The Lancers fell to 1-4 overall.

Ceres has won three straight.

"The whole coaching staff has been pleased with our performance up to this point," Williams said.

The Bulldogs collected 15 hits against the Lancers.

East Union starting pitcher Spencer Arroyo allowed seven runs on seven hits in three innings.

Ceres scored three runs in the top of the second inning and extended its lead to seven with four more in the third.

In the third inning, Reyes had a two-run single. Eudy and Jake Loveland added RBI singles.

"We went 1-2-3 in the first, scored three runs in the second and it just grew from there," Williams said.

Ceres led 12-1 heading into the bottom of the six inning.

"We're putting runs up on the board, which is nice," Williams said. "Our next big test is proving we can come back when the pressure is on." - By DALE BUTLER / Staff Reporter of The Ceres (Calif.) Courier
