It wasn't looking like a day that Freddy Avis wanted to remember. The Menlo School junior pitcher gave up three runs in the bottom of the first inning and saw his Menlo School baseball team trailing by five runs after three innings in a Central Coast Section Division III semifinal on Tuesday at San Jose Municipal Stadium.

'Feel like I've been reading about Avis since he was in 5th grade. He must be the greatest athlete in the history of Palo Alto.

Pretty impressive.

A Fan obviously wasn't there to see all the possible story lines. This was just one of them. A typical rags to riches for Avis....gets battered around, makes a mistake but still contributes in a big way. Nothing wrong with that. Phil Anderson was clutch, as was Robert Wickers and Mikey Diekroeger.....Jake Bruml.....everyone contributed. How many teams come from six back heading into the sixth to win in the postseason? Not many. Avis was worthy and it made it more interesting that way.

Is no one going to point out that Carmel blew it? That article mentions three crucial errors, and there may have been more. Menlo is a good team, don't get me wrong, but Carmel lost the game more than Menlo won it. Every team needs a few of those though
