A make-up of an early-season rainout, Menlo traveled to Hayward on Tuesday afternoon to take on CSU East Bay and fell 9-4 in the non-conference affair.

In the final game of nearly a month long road trip, the Pioneers pounded out nine runs on 15 hits, scoring all nine of their runs in just two innings to get the better of the Oaks.

After putting up zero’s in the first and second innings, Menlo starter Mackenzie Boone got touched-up for four runs in the home half of the third to give CSUEB a 4-0 lead.

Boone took the loss in his first start of the year, allowing four runs on eight hits, striking out three in two innings of work. Boone gave way to Coloton Heckerl who allowed the remaining runs in his 1.2 innings of relief.

After giving up four runs in the third, the Menlo offense responded with three runs in the top of the fourth to cut the lead to 4-3, but CSUEB added five more in the fourth to regain the lead, 9-3.

Menlo added one more in the top of the eighth but it wasn’t enough as the Oaks left seven runners started and ultimately fell 9-4 to the NCAA Div. II Pioneers.

Kyer Vega was 1-for-4 with a double while James Threw drove in two of the Oaks four runs. Nick Quejado notched two hits and a walk to round out the Menlo offense’s four-hit day.

The Pioneers used 10 different pitchers in the win with Julian Garcia collecting the win for his scoreless inning in relief.

Menlo returns home for the first time in over a month on Friday as they open conference play with a doubleheader starting at 12 pm against defending NAIA West Champions Concordia (Portland).
