Original post made on Jul 2, 2008

This game was a nail-biter until Palo Alto blew it open in the 6th. San Mateo's starting pitcher was impressive, but was replaced in the 6th by three relievers. Carey got hits off two different pitchers.

Grey was on fire, and every plate appearance was impressive. Sinchek did an incredible job catching. Nick Wells, Clay Carey and Peter Verheecke worked the mound; Eric Tam made several entertaining catches in center field, robbing San Mateo of quite a few doubles.

Keep up the good work, guys!

I spaced out yesterday -- David Oyer pitched a scoreless 7th, not Peter. Peter was on first during the last two innings.

Game 2 of the 3-game series is TONIGHT, 7PM at Baylands.
