Menlo Park Legends 11, Fontanetti's Athletics 3
Date of competition: Tuesday, July 17, 2012
The Menlo Park Legends extended their win streak to seven games by defeating Far West League rival Fontanetti's Athletics, 11-3, on Tuesday at Canada College in Redwood City behind seven solid innings from Alon Leichman and two big offensive outbursts.
After Fontanetti's scored a single run in the first, Menlo Park got rolling in the third after consecutive singles by Peter Woodall, Mike Marcoux and Tyger Pederson. With the bases loaded and one out, Pierson Jeremiah's grounder to the left of the third baseman drew a throw home, but an error allowed two runs to cross the plate. Menlo-Atherton graduate Jeff Keller made it 3-1 with an RBI single.
The Legends blew the game open with a six-run sixth. CJ Jacobe got it started with an RBI single, followed by RBI walks from Pederson and JT Greenhood. After a wild pitch scored another, Jeremiah had a two-run single to push the lead to 9-1. Jeremiah finished 3-for-5 with four RBI while extending his hitting streak to eight games.
