Ryan Chilcoat had two hits and a walk for the Bears, while Andy Brodbeck drove in two runs with a double in the 6th inning. Jeff Keller raised his batting average to an eye-popping .647 and his on-base percentage to .700 with a single and three walks. Myles Brewer and Chace Warren each drove in a run for the Bears, whose overall record fell to 2-3.
Warren also pitched effectively in relief, limiting Menlo to one run and two hits over 2 2/3 innings as M-A staged its late-game rally.
M-A returns to action on Saturday afternoon, March 20, against Washington High School (San Francisco).
