Explorers Demolish District Rival Southwest; Retake Top Spot in District
Last Tuesday, the Explorers took on district rival Southwest in a game that set the stage for the district playoffs. Junior Jonathan Gonzalez earned the win for the Explorers pitching 5 innings allowing only 3 hits, no runs, and striking out 4. The Explorers bats once again scored 10 runs off 9 hits as they remained red hot. Every Explorer hitter had 1 hit on the day including doubles from seniors Alex Rodriguez and Nick Calero and juniors Jake Marquez and JP Herholtz. It only took the Explorers 5 innings to defeat Southwest, as they won by mercy rule and a final score of 10-0 retaking the top spot in the district. The Exploers look to maintain the top spot as they take on district opponent Braddock today at home at 4 o’clock.
