Hercules takes care of business, defeats Kennedy 11-1

on May 2, 2013

The Hercules Titans’ baseball team pounded out 11 hits in five innings Wednesday evening to defeat Kennedy, 11-1. The win moved the Titans into a first-place tie with St. Joseph Notre Dame in the Tri-County Rock Division.

The game was almost like a home game for the visiting Titans as there were no Eagles’ fans in the bleachers. Titans’ followers, meanwhile, lined the third base line with folding chairs and umbrellas and enjoyed watching their freshman pitcher Justin Mahley throw a four-hit complete game.

Although Hercules’ roster had eight more players than Kennedy’s nine, the game started promisingly for Eagles’ starting pitcher Enrique Navarro. The freshman used a slow curve to keep batters off balance while recording two groundouts, and one popup to the catcher.

But in the second inning Hercules’ bats came alive. They sent seven batters to the plate before Kennedy would record its first out—all seven would cross the plate.

Kennedy’s next game, the last of the regular season, is Friday at St. Joseph Notre Dame.

    As a result of the recent extremely high rate of truancy at high schools in Hercules, Richmond, El Cerrito, and Pinole, I am asking the school board to consider suspending sports programs temporarily as a means to encourage our kids to attend class. Here is the very alarming report

    We are not doing our kids any favors by not holding them accountable. This truancy nonsense must stop if our children are to succeed. Ask the school board to consider a temporary suspension of high school sports for purpose of sending a message to our kids that they belong in class.
