Of local note: Not a good day in baseball for the Caps

Austin Wells singled and scored a run on Tuesday.

Ryan Holgate collected three hits, including a home run, and drove in two runs but the Pacific Union Capitalists were deflated by the visiting Healdsburg Prune Packers in a nonconference summer collegiate baseball game Tuesday at Palo Alto High.

Jose Gonzalez and Jake McLean also hit home runs for the Caps (10-11), who are off Wednesday and then begins a four-day swing through Eureka and Arcata with a game against the Humboldt B52's at Bomber Field at Redwood Acres on Thursday at 7:05 p.m.

The Caps are at the Humboldt Crabs for three games beginning Friday at 7 p.m. at Arcata Ballpark.

PUF tied the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the third. Tanner Carlson doubled home Austin Wells, who had singled, and Holgate doubled home Carlson.

Healdsburg scored nine times in the top of the fourth to take control of the game.

Jackson Cobb and Stephen Grizzle also drove in runs for the Caps.

Girls' golf

Redwood Shores resident Lucy Li fell a couple of spots at the Junior PGA Championships in Lexington, KY on Tuesday but remains in striking distance after firing a 3-under 69 for a two-day total of 135, four strokes behind leader Yealimi Noh, a UCLA commit, who is at 131 with one round remaining at the Kearney Golf Links.

Stanford commit Brooke Seay, of San Diego, also made the cut, firing a 1-under 71 to move into 22nd place with a total of 142.
