    Cold day for Trojans

    It was a frigid Tuesday afternoon at Skyline when the Trojans fell 4-6 against CSM.

    This was Skyline’s third game in the season conference, and up until Tuesday they had been undefeated. The earlier March games against Cañada and Mission College had been devastating shows of Skyline’s brutal offense, and had seemingly laid a path of Trojan victory through to the championship. It seems, however, that our Bulldog rivals will need more attention.

    CSM kept the offensive heat on all through the game. They started off the game with two runs in the first inning, followed by a run each in the third and fourth inning. At the bottom of the fourth, Skyline fought back viciously. Nick Victor crushed a home run over the fence with Justin Granato on base, scoring two runs for the Trojans. After Matt Andreoli hit a single and was on base, Frank Kurnik knocked out a triple base hit to get Andreoli home and plant himself on third. Matt Lucchesi helped Kurnik home with a single to tie the score before the end of the fourth inning.

    This impressive display, unfortunately, was not enough to prevail over the Bulldog machine.. CSM’s relentless offense continued to fight against Skyline, and CSM wound up scoring runs in both the fifth and ninth inning. Both of these runs, it might be noted, were home runs with the bases empty- a sign, perhaps, that CSM won more by sheer luck than by cohesive teamwork.
