The men’s varsity baseball team escaped the Falcons with a 5-4 win at Foothill on May 7.

 

In the first inning of the game, the score was a solid 0-0. With an increased crowd size, due to Foothill’s senior night celebration, the pressure was high.

 

Coronado fought for a run in the second inning, but never made it past second base, keeping the score 0-0 until the fifth inning.

 

Austin Garcia, senior, managed to help out his teammates with hitting two RBI’s. Added to his success he hit one home run, helping out the Cougars in the bottom of the fifth inning.

 

During the top of the sixth inning, the Falcons popped up on the scoreboard with a total of two runs. Adam Garcia, sophomore, was then put into the game to pitch for Coronado.

 

Finishing off the seventh inning was a nail biter with Coronado upping their runs to 5 and the Falcons coming in close behind with a score of 4.

 

The final score of the game was 5-4 Cougars taking the win.
