Explorers Win Streak Continues; Drop Braddock 6-3
Yesterday, the Explorers took on the Braddock Bulldogs in 9A District 15 play. The Explorers bats caught fire yet again as they managed 6 runs in the second inning. Senior Albert Espinosa and junior Jake Marquez both had multi-hit games. Also, junior Jonathan Gonzalez picked up his second win of the season. He pitched 5.2 innings allowing just 4 hits and striking out 8 Bulldog hitters. Senior Anthony Vega came in clutch as he was put in with bases loaded and 2 outs. He quickly got out of it and flawlessly pitched the 7th inning to pick up the save. The Explorers look to continue their winning ways tonight as the take on the Coral Reef Barracudas at home at 6 o’clock.
