• Carter’s two-home run day leads JV Breakers to victory over Soledad, 16-4

    By Brian “Woodie” Wood
    Pacific Grove’s JV baseball team was hosted by Soledad on Tuesday (May 8) in their last road game of the season.  The strong Salinas Valley winds did not bother the Breakers as they triumphed in a 16-4 victory over the Aztecs.
     
    Catcher Chianti Carter led the way with two home runs and five runs batted in. PG tallied three runs in the first off of a single by JJ Courtney, double by Charlie McMahon and Carter’s first home run.  In the second, PG added another two runs. Mario Bonelli had a long double aided by walks to McMahon and Carter and singles by Zach Malone and Jay McMahon.  The wheels came off of the Soledad wagon in the fourth when the Breakers put across eleven runs. Highlights were Carter’s second home run (plus a single), a single and double by Courtney, C.McMahon’s second double of the day (plus a walk), two singles from Jay McMahon, a single by Bonelli, and walks to Aidan Borman and Desi Green.  PG knocked out 11 hits in the inning.
     
    The game was called after four innings and PG pitcher Colton Bell struck out nine and allowed just three hits in his complete game victory.
     
    PG (12-9 overall, 8-3 league) hosts Soledad on Thursday (May 10) at 4pm at the JV Field for their final game of the season.
