The Palo Alto Oaks split a nonleague doubleheader with Fontanetti's Collegiate on Sunday, losing the first game by 3-2 but winning the second by 2-0 at Baylands Athletic Center.

In Game 1, the Oaks' Dominic Hernandez allowed Fontanetti's three runs and five hits through the first six innings. Fontanetti's used four pitchers who combined to allow only two runs on five Palo Alto hits. Oaks' reliever Ricky Navarro from Gunn High held Fonatanetti's scoreless for the remainder of the game, but three runs proved to be enough for the visitors from San Jose. The Oaks rallied in the bottom of the ninth, loading the bases with no outs but failed to score.

In Game 2, the Oaks scored all the runs they needed in the first inning. Warner led off the game by reaching first on a fielding error and then stole second. He advanced to third on a single by Allen Stiles, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Beres. Stiles advanced to second on Beres' sacrifice, moved to third on a groundout and then scored on a single by designated hitter Anthony Bona. Jeff Ramirez had three hits in three at-bats combined with two stolen bases in the game.

First-year player C.J. Hillyer got the win by pitching a shutout for the first four innings of the seven-inning contest. Brant Norlander pitched two more scoreless innings before turning the ball over to closer and team manager Greg Matson, who earned the save with a scoreless final inning.
