Boys Varsity Baseball: M-A Evens Season Record with 9-4 Victory over San Mateo

Original post made by Bob Moriarty, Team Parent, Menlo Park: other, on Mar 14, 2010

Menlo-Atherton took full advantage of six walks, four hit batsmen, and four San Mateo errors to bury the Bearcats 9-4 on Saturday afternoon, March 13, at M-A.

Jeff Keller led an eight-hit M-A attack with a triple, double, 2 RBI, and two runs scored. Michael Abramson, Chase Warren, Nils Gilbertson, Kyle Zirbes, and Cam Rowland also drove in runs for M-A, which evened its season record at 2-2.

Gilbertson pitched four strong innings to earn the victory, scattering seven hits while striking out three and giving up just three earned runs. Zirbes pitched three scoreless innings of relief, striking out two San Mateo batters.

M-A shortstop Casey Eason helped preserve the victory when he made a diving stab on a vicious line drive and then flipped to teammate Chris Gow to double the San Mateo runner off second base in the 5th inning.

M-A returns to action on Tuesday afternoon, March 16, against Menlo.
