Solano goes nine; improves to 7-0 for Menlo baseball


Brett Solano allowed two runs in his first three innings Saturday before slamming the door in Menlo College's 7-2 victory over visiting Concordia in an NAIA West Grouping baseball contest.

The Cavaliers came back to win the second game, 14-4, as the teams split their conference opening four-game series over the weekend.

Solano (7-0) improved his ERA to 2.80, which is actually third-best on the Oaks (2-2 NAIA West, 20-8) to Skylar Fuss (2.30) and Thomas Cox (2.68). The trio has a combined 15-1 record, with a pair of saves.

Menlo took the lead in the fourth when Alex Boucher hit his first home run of the season, hammering a Ryan McMonigle pitch to deep left. Menlo would never trail again.

The Oaks added two more in the fifth when Drake Richie, Dan Comstock and Wes Hoskins each doubled.

Richie, who had a monster game at the plate with two doubles, two runs and an RBI, ripped his second double of the game in the seventh to ignite a two-run inning.

Richie, Chris Freeman and Alex Boucher all had two-hit days at the plate for Menlo and Adam Ochart, Hoskins and Boucher each drove in two runs.
