Starter Torin Shaikh (3-2) gave Westmont eight and one-third solid innings on the mound and catcher Jarratt Rouse went three for three at the plate as Westmont Baseball (9-9) posted a 12-2 win over the visiting Oaks of Menlo (7-3) on Friday afternoon at Russ Carr Field. Designated hitter Alex Bush was three for four at the plate, including a two-run home run in the eighth inning.
The Warriors posted a single run in the bottom of the second to take an early lead. Bush reached on a fielder’s choice that produced the second out of the inning. After Bush advanced to second on a wild pitch, Rouse singled up the middle to drive in Bush.
Both of Menlo’s runs came in the top of the fourth inning after lead-off batter Nick Quejado reached on an infield single and then stole second. One out later, Kyer Vega singled through the right side to move Quejado to third.
Aaron Suarez-Lopez then hit a hot shot to the mound that bounce far enough off of Shaikh’s foot to allow Quejado to score, Vega to take second and Suarez-Lopez to reach first with a single. Two batters later, Sam Shapiro doubled down the right field line to drive in Vega.
