Tenorio has another monster day at the plate for the Oaks

 

The Menlo College baseball team stayed hot offensively Friday, building on an earlier 20-run performance with a pair of 13-run efforts in NAIA West conference action, downing visiting Simpson, 13-6 and 13-3.

Thomas Cox earned the win in game one. Mack Boone earned the win in his first start of the season in game two.

In the first game, Menlo scored seven runs in the first three innings, scoring once in the first on an RBI single from Alex Tenorio, and then scored six in the third.

Drake Richie sparked the later rally with a home run. Tenorio delivered a two-run single, and Garrett Gemgnani drilld a homer to left, his first of the season.

Cox worked six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out six and walking none.

In the second game, Boone worked five innings, allowing two runs, one earned on three hits while striking out three and walking two to pick up the win.

In the first inning, Alex Boucher led off with a single and Richie walked. Comstock doubled in a run and Nick Quejado singled in another.

Tenorio finished the day 5-for-8 with four runs scored, six RBI and a walk. His weekly total is an impressive 10-for-14 with five runs, a double, triple, two home runs and 14 RBI.

The Oaks and Red Hawks will conclude the weekend series on Saturday when Menlo travels north to Redding for a doubleheader at 3 p.m.
