The Menlo College Oaks looked for their first Golden State Athletic Conference sweep of the baseball season on senior day against San Diego Christian and used their power to achieve it. Nine balls left the yard for the Oaks as they triumphed over the Hawks 21-5 and 9-1. With the wins, the Oaks finish their season at 15-26 and 11-21 in the GSAC while the Hawks finish at 15-33-1 and 7-24 in the GSAC.

Game One: Menlo 21, SDCC 5
Cole Launches Two
Dylan Cole got the nod batting in the nine spot for the Oaks and hit like a clean up hitter, going 3-4 with two home runs and five RBIs. In the second inning, Cole launched the first home run of the game, with Rowan Ramsay and Brice Foster on base, giving the Oaks a 4-0 lead. Cole singled and scored in the fourth on a Justin Wallis RBI single and the Oaks kept the bats going, giving Cole a second chance in the fourth. He did not disappoint, coming up with Foster on second he launched another long ball to left field.

Senior Pitching Staff Shines
The Oaks went with an all senior pitching trio. Ryan McCarthy got the starting nod and delivered five strong innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on five hits, while striking out three and walking no one. Spencer Vincent and Brandon Dietzman helped keep things in order. Vincent's day began with a rocky start as he loaded the bases with no outs but was able to get out of it allowing a single run. He followed with a 1-2-3 inning in the seventh. Dietzman, who took pover in the eighth, allowed two runs, one earned in his two innings of work, striking out three and walking one.

The (Impressive) Numbers
The Oaks had five players with multi hits. Justin Wallis was 4-6 with a home run and four RBIs. Alexander Thompson and Cole each had three knocks and combined for nine RBIs. Rowan Ramsay and Foster each added two hits and combined for four RBIs. The Oaks had 19 hits, eight of them for extra bases.

Game Two: Menlo 9, SDCC 1
Lee Goes the Distance
Karsten Lee got the start in game two and went the distance for the Oaks. Lee dazzled with a powerful fastball and bending curveball, allowing one unearned run and seven hits, while striking out five and walking two. It was, arguably, the best start of his Menlo career and it was all the more special coming on senior day.

Nebe Goes Yard on Senior Day
Senior catcher Wyatt Nebe started game two and launched his second career long ball. Nebe reached base in both plate appearances, walking in one plate appearance, and blasting a three run bomb in the second.

Season Recap
Nick Adgar led the way for the Oaks hitting .338 with 7 home runs and 21 RBIs. Dalton Maxwell went .333 at the plate with 3 long balls and 28 RBIs and Shane Jones went .307 with 6 home runs and 22 RBIs.
