Original post made by Linda Lange, Menlo-Atherton High School, on Apr 19, 2011

On April 18th, the Menlo Atherton Bears varsity baseball team plays 2 dominating games in the Rancho Cordova tournament scoring 21 runs while giving up only 1. The first game against Lindhurst High School, showcased junior Michael Ogrey's varsity pitching debut with 5 innings of 2 hit baseball backed by sparkling defense with sophomore Alex Aguiar charging a ball from 3rd and whipping it to first for the out. In the second inning, 2nd baseman Will Lyons barehands a bad hop ball and fires to first. The bats were so lively the Lindhurst center fielder moved back to greater than 300 feet on a field with no fences to catch a blast by Chace Warren that would have been a home run anywhere else. Kyle Zirbes foiled them with another blast to the picnic benches for a 3 RBI triple.
