Menlo Park Legends 8, San Francisco Seals 4
Date of competition: Saturday, June 29, 2013
Legends' manager David Klein continues to age quicker than he should as Menllo Park followed its seemingly routine formula of falling behind early before rallying for a win.
The latest example was an 8-4 victory over the San Francisco Seals, which extended the Legends current winning streak to five games.
Starter DJ Sharabi (CSM) surrendered a walk and two doubles to let the Seals take an early first inning 2 – 0 lead.
Zach Hoffpaiur (Stanford) reached on an error and eventually scored Menlo Park's first run on a Kyle Zirbes sacrifice fly, but the Seals added another in the second.
The Legends answered with a run in the third on a walk to Dane Vande Guchte (CSM) and an RBI single by Hoffpaiur.
The Seals upped their lead to 4-2 entering the bottom of the fifth. That's when the Legends took control.
A single by Justin Bard (St John’s U), walk to Vande Guchte, double by Hoffpaiur, walk to Zirbes, Danny Miller (Mission College) hit by pitch and two rbi single by Geo Saba plated four runs to flip the game to the Legends' side of the leasd, 6-4.
Justin Bard added a homer in the seventh while Logan Towbridge (CSM) and Vande Guchte singled for a run in the eighth.
Sharabi battled through six innings to record the win and Laurens Ole pitched three nearly perfect inning of relief to get the save. Zach Hoffpaiur continued his hot hitting with three hits in the game while Geo Saba and Josh Bard each had two hits and two rbis.
The Legends face the Seals again in a doubleheader at Canada starting at noon.
